Pavlos Loizou, CEO of Ask Wire, commented that “real estate demand is influenced by political unrest in the region, inflation eating away households’ disposable income, and elevated mortgage rates. As we advance into the first quarter of 2024, with considerable supply coming through and weakening demand, it is expected that prices will adjust accordingly. Furthermore, commercial property values will likely continue to face significant challenges, given the allure of alternative investment opportunities that offer appealing risk-adjusted returns.”
