Real Estate Acquisition in Brazil, Germany and Hungary


The Brazilian real estate market has been growing over the last years as a result of large-sized infrastructure investments in areas such as airports, transportation, hotels and shopping centres. It is expected that the Olympic Games of 2016 continue to attract further investments.

Germany’s real estate market is booming. In particular, the market for retail, office and residential properties in prime locations benefits from continued investor demand. Rents in prime locations have increased significantly, even though the economic growth rate is only slightly above zero. Dynamic growth is also recorded in the Hungarian real estate market, where demand is rising both in the commercial and residential segments.
