European Real Estate Congress Berlin

"One Voice for Real Estate in Europe Politics and Business"

Successful European Real Estate Congress in Berlin More than 800 real estate agents and managers visited the European Real Estate Congress 2011 in Berlin. Among them were a lot of CEI members from different countries. "In Berlin more than 20 European countries were represented. We had good discussions and we used the chance to make a lot of new business contacts", said Manuel Negrao, President of CEI after the Berlin Congress. Manuel Negrao: "From the CEI members countries we had representatives from Ireland, England, The Netherlands, France, Portugal, Italy, Romania, Bulgaria and Germany. It's been a huge meeting of real estate agents and we had a lot to discus."
  • Real Estate markets
The situation on the different real estate markets is totally different. That has been shown by a survey of CEI about the prices of an apartment in several European cities. The average price of an apartment differs a lot in Europe. Paris, Milan and London are on the top. In Paris, a 2-Bed-Room Apartment costs more than 500.000 Euros. A potential buyer of an apartment with the same quality (usable area) has to pay 450.000 Euros in Milan and 440.00 Euros in London. In Dublin a 2-Bed-Room-Apartment costs approximately 380.000 Euros and in Rome and Munich about 280.000 Euros. In Vienna, the Austrian capital, an investor has to pay 150.000 Euros in average for an apartment. Prices in Salzburg, Graz and Innsbruck are a bit below this. In average, an apartment in Salzburg and Innsbruck costs 140.000 Euros. In Athens, there are still luxury apartments which cost 9.000 Euros per sq.mt. On the other side, normal apartment prices ranges there from 800 to 3.000 Euros. A square meter in Sofia ranges from 500 to 2300 Euros. That means in average an apartment costs around 66.000 Euros. If you are going from Sofia to the North, you end up in Romania. Apartments in Romania's capital cost approximately 80.000 Euros. Prices in Bratislava, especially in Slovakia's capital, are higher (143.500 Euros). Apartment prices in Lisbon range from 126.000 to 274.000 Euros (Average: 185.000 Euros)
  • Foundation of the new platform
CEI and CEPI signed an agreement about the foundation of a new political platform for the joint work in real estate politics in Brussels. The name of the new platform is: "Real Estate Professionals Forum". Manuel Negrao in his opening speech of the Congress: "The new political platform we found today shall become a new European association for real estate professions in the coming two years. With that platform and later in the new association we want to reinforce the political representation of interests of our professions. We have to reach a higher importance in political decisions in Brussels for all real estate agents and managers. Until now the political interests of real estate professions are considered insufficiently. This will be changed. According to that the Professional Card which the CEPI is working at is a first important project. The political representation of interests is one of the tasks of the new political platform. The second one is of same importance and I, as CEI president, take liberty to say, that for us as members of a real estate association it is nearly more important. We need unified and stable basic conditions as rules for our professions in whole Europe. In our associations CEI and CEPI are about 300.000 real estate agents and managers organized. We are the major representation of interests of real estate professions in Europe. As association we have the function to define basic conditions when the legislator does not. I have in mind a unified Code of Ethics, rules for insurances of real estate agents and managers and a consistent complaints management in our member companies. We in CEI made an important step in the development of the European Norm EN 15733. This Norm is in 31 European states an optional basic for the relation between clients and real estate agents. Now we as associations have to develop the content of this norm further on. Our rules of professions and especially the consistent Code of Ethics for all real estate agents and managers have to be modernized and adjusted to the age of Web 2.0. Social networks, the spontaneous communication over Facebook and Twitter are not enough represented in the present Code of Ethics or Code of Conducts. For our member companies as well as for the consumers we have to build a frame of rules and rights of information and explain to the parties concerned how to behave correctly and have a fair competition." CEI thanks the German Real Estate Association Immobilienverband IVD for hosting the Real Estate Congress 2011. Together with the colleagues from CEPI the Congress was very well organized and covered a lot of important features. Manuel Negrao: "I would like to thank Timo Multanen, the president of CEPI personally for his big support and efficiency in preparing the congress and the agreement of CEI and CEPI. For the real estate professions in Europe the signing of the agreement was a huge step for a better representation in Brussels."

EUROPEAN RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY MARKET 2011

Economic Outlook: In Europe, GDP increased during the first quarter of 2011, compared with the same quarter of the previous year, seasonally adjusted by 2.5% in both the euro area and the EU27. Positive economic fundamentals, like GDP, have a positive impact on real estate prices. A positive GDP has a positive effect on household incomes and higher incomes can lead to higher housing prices. Nevertheless, there are still big differences in GDP growth since the financial crisis 2008/2009.  Especially the European credit crisis has forced different economic recoveries within Europe. Compared with the same quarter of the previous year, GDP increased in Germany by 4.8 %. The French economy grew by 2.2 %. The annual growth rate in the Netherlands was 3.2%. In Austrian increased the economy by 4.0 %. Real Estate Markets: The average price of an apartment differs a lot in Europe. Paris, Milan and London are on the top.

Business Climate Indicator down in the euro area

Important notice: From February 2011 onwards, business surveys are presented exclusively in accordance with the NACE rev. 2 classification. In previous months, a combination of NACE rev. 1 and rev. 2 has been used. The Business Climate Indicator (BCI) for the euro area fell in April 2011 for the second month in a row. Despite this, the current level of the indicator remains close to historic peaks, suggesting that the recovery in industry will continue in the coming months. The drop in the BCI reflects worsening assessments of production trends observed in recent months, and of production expectations, which declined sharply. Appraisal of stocks rebounded slightly from historic lows. These negative developments were not offset by the slight improvement in managers' assessment of overall order books and export order books. The BCI is based on a factor analysis of the euro area aggregate balances (seasonally adjusted) of five of the monthly questions in the industry survey (only employment and selling-price expectations are excluded). Full details of the Business Climate Indicator are available on the Europa website: http://ec.europa.eu/economy_finance/db_indicators/surveys/index_en.htm The next BCI Results are due to be published on 27 May 2011.

CEI President at ARKCR Conference, Prague

CEI President, Manuel Negrão, joined ARK (Czech Republic Real Estate Association) at the 20 years birthday congress, on March 30th, 2011. Manuel Negrão had the opportunity to speak about the European real estate activity and how to stimulate the housing sector. As CEI President he strongly supported the development and introduction of the EN 15733, emphasizing the importance of common standards in Europe. "Fair rules of competition for all real estate agents in Europe are one of the main goals of the work of CEI. The EN 15733 standard which is the European standard with which property companies in member states must comply in order to ensure the security of consumers responds to that exact requirement, regulating a market that is based on the natural desire people have to own the home they live in.

This regulation which functions as a sort of lowest common denominator for quality in the services provided by professionals working in the real estate industry will make a positive difference and will help to promote those companies working in accordance with the values of freedom, the market economy and respect for citizens and consumers, as well as the very idea of the European Union itself", he said in his speech in the ARK conference in Prague.
