Sustainability and the future of data management
The virtues of Europe’s real estate market make it attractive to investors worldwide. It offers breadth, depth and reliable income streams, all of which investors covet.
But as it emerges from the immense disruption of the past two years, what trends and challenges lie ahead for those who operate within it?
Some of the answers to these questions are revealed in new research conducted by virtual data provider Drooms, which gauged the thoughts of real estate professionals across Europe.
The most significant trend respondents saw going forward is the extent to which "sustainability," which encompasses environmental and social goals, is rapidly rising up the agenda. The topic was cited by 36 percent of respondents as the biggest trend in real estate in Europe. This belief is strongest in the United Kingdom and Germany, where 43 percent and 42 percent of respondents, respectively, think this, versus 33 percent in France and 27 percent in Spain.
