UK Economy and Property Market Update

UK Economy and Property Market Update

The Economy and Property Market Update is a new quarterly assessment of key macro, real estate and construction trends. It is designed to provide a concise summary  of both recent market newsflow and expectations.

Highlights from the latest update include:

The economy is set to grow by somewhere between 5 and 7.5% this year creating a generally favourable environment for real estate as interest rates remain at rock bottom levels into 2022.

Structural challenges will continue to depress some parts of the commercial property market but investment activity elsewhere will gain further momentum.

Private housing and infrastructure will lead the acceleration in output growth in the construction sector.
