We enter 2022 with optimism and confidence. The second half of 2021 showed a clear recovery in every real estate segment, including record highs in some indicators. In this sixth edition of our Real Estate Market Outlook, we foresee continued growth in 2022, with most asset classes approaching or even returning to pre-pandemic levels.

On the one hand, market fundamentals are robust. There is solid demand, rising rents and sale prices, as well as an interesting pipeline of new projects. On the other, there is still high liquidity to invest in the real estate market, for project development as well as property investment. New asset classes are emerging, such as affordable housing, senior living and data centres, while others show robust growth, namely logistics and student housing.

Sustainability will be particularly important in 2022, with building owners, operators and occupiers aligning their ESG strategies.

If uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 pandemic seems to be dissipating, there are currently other risks that may threaten the good performance of the property market. However, interest rates are not expected to increase abruptly this year and the rise in inflation should be transitory.
