Top 10 predictions for the Romanian real estate market in 2019

Download Report

Romania has defied gravity in recent years and managed to see above-potential economic output, which also prompted the real estate industry to see some of the best results in the post-crisis period. The re-emergence of risks (both internal and external) and the slowdown trend started last year underscore the necessity to balance short-term risks, while also keeping in mind the huge untapped long-term potential that Romania displays.


  1. Macro outlook decent, but risks skewed to the downside;
  2. Investments can do more than tread water, but outlook is cloudy;
  3. Increased pressures from a tight labour market;
  4. Bucharest office market: build it and they will come?
  5. Industrial and logistics market set to deliver big again;
  6. As good as it gets for retail;
  7. Foggy outlook for residential;
  8. Land market to cool a bit after some excellent years;
  9. Regional cities remain in the spotlight; room to grow on all real estate segments;
  10. Political scene heating up (and boiling over?).
