Annual Report 2014

Mortgage and real estate market

Real estate prices slowed in 2014 in the market regions and segments that had seen particularly high growth rates in previous years. This, however, has not been reflected in the mortgage volume. In the past, such slowdowns in price increases have often been short-lived, especially when drivers such as the current low interest rate environment have persisted. The imbalances built up due to historically high prices remain in place.
