Several factors explain why volumes took another annual dip.
The country’s real estate market is in recovery mode and offers opportunities for debt providers.
The eurozone is rebounding and property markets look resolute, but lenders should not be complacent.
The property industry, including the lending community, must respond to the harassment scandal.
Its populist government is a cause for concern, but real estate market fundamentals make the country worthy of consideration.
Efforts to reform banking will bolster real estate finance markets.
Whether by geography, sector or product, real estate finance providers are broadening their scope. Alternative lenders, particularly, are set to benefit from the drive to diversify.
Credit will provide a major access point into real estate for an increasing number of investors in the year ahead.
