Now, at mid-2021, the market is almost back to normal. Most importantly, the Covid-19 crisis, which marked an abrupt break in the country’s outstanding investment boom, has given cause to reassess the quality and future viability of properties through heightened risk awareness, something that cross-border investors, in particular, appreciate. Likewise this environment created new opportunities at modified price levels to profit of the countries future growth.
