Catella Market Indicator - Finland, Spring 2022 has been published

The pandemic's impact on the property market remained low. Covid-19 continued to affect the property market last year. In the beginning of the year, the restrictions caused by the second wave of the pandemic kept the transaction volume low, but improved situation in the summer and brisk economic growth throughout the year eventually increased the volume to a level clearly above the year before. Despite the pandemic continuing, properties have maintained their position as a very attractive investment alternative, as interest rates have kept on a very low level and the impact on the rental market, too, eventually remained surprisingly low.
