Prognosen zufolge werden die Preise in der finnischen Hauptstadtregion im Jahr 2021 um fünf Prozent und im Jahr 2022 um drei Prozent steigen.
The economic crisis triggered by the coronavirus pandemic is surprising that it has not reduced the attractiveness of population centers; on the contrary, according to Hypo. The attractiveness of downtown has increased as high-income households invest the savings they accumulated during the pandemic in housing and extra floor space, clicking on even the largest townhome.
“In addition, wealthy seniors in the provinces provided themselves with a base close to cultural and other services. The interest of the elderly in getting a second home in the city is more important for the housing market than the much-discussed cottage boom, ”said Juhana Brotherus, Chefvolkswirt der Hypo.
Es ist unwahrscheinlich, dass sich die Situation in naher Zukunft ändern wird.
Hypo betonte, dass die Pandemie den Wohnungsbau in und um Helsinki, Tampere und Turku angekurbelt habe – und zwar so sehr, dass zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte in drei Städten mehr Häuser gebaut würden als anderswo im Land.
“The coronavirus and interest rates are not remote and staying at home, but have been critical factors in the housing market. Those who predicted and hoped for the death of urbanization are again disappointed, ”Brotherus said.
The rental market has been “frozen”, Hypo described. Although telecommuting, telecommuting and a lack of events have forced tenants to spend months searching for a tenant even in Helsinki, the houses are sold even before the first viewing through unofficial channels.
Brotherus said the slowdown in the rental market at the same time as the rise in the sales market is unprecedented. The latest financial crisis caused a 6 percent drop and the largest increase in rents in the 21st century.
– The rental and sales market is like seeing what it sees during crises: the rental market is rising and the sales market is falling. Now the opposite has happened, ”he said.
