Warsaw is the Political, Business and Cultural centre of Poland and is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. Warsaw has a booming economy with modern business services and a well trained professional workforce.

Despite the reduced levels of growth experienced in 2009, Warsaw’s retail schemes remain very popular among customers, retailers and investors according to CBRE.

The latest CBRE market reports show that although the economic downturn had strongly influenced the real estate market, good indicators observed in the middle of last year (indicators were ahead of market expectations) have stimulated the property market.

Why Warsaw

The latest REAS Residential Market Report states that the birth rate in Warsaw is comparable to the record high recorded in the mid 1980s.

Consequently the population in Warsaw is growing  and the demand for new residential property will increase proportionately. Demand for residential property in Warsaw should be strong and it is worth noting that at the end of 2009 the surplus of supply over demand in the residential market was relatively low.

REAS reported that in Q4 2009, the average price of units launched for sale actually increased. Therefore the outlook for residential real estate in 2010 is quite positive.
