Economy in Focus #3 – Downturn on the housing market

Today we publish the latest issue of Intrum’s bi-monthly Economy in Focus report, with in-depth commentary on macroeconomic trends from Senior Economist Anna Zabrodzka-Averianov. Gain insight into the current state of the housing market across Europe.

After ten years of rising house prices in a low-interest rate environment, changes to the interest rate are hitting countries with high household debt ratios – notably the Nordic countries Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway. Meanwhile, in Central and Eastern Europe, the pricing correction is less acute.
