What could happen in 2023

“2022 marked the end of low mortgage rates and a more pronounced slowdown in demand in the last quarter, while prices continued to rise – said Vincenzo De Tommaso, head of the Idealista research office -. 2023 will conditioned by economic instability and uncertainty due to the Russian-Ukrainian conflict, the energy crisis, the increase in the price of raw materials and galloping inflation, with many potential buyers who will have to postpone the purchase of the house. longer and a drop in sales compared to 2022, while prices will cool down without undergoing particular changes. It will not be a homogeneous process and areas with less demand will experience these trends earlier and more forcefully. Medium-low range properties will probably suffer the biggest declines over the course of next year”.
