Higher interest costs pose downside risks to values

Real estate equity prices pointed to around a 10% fall in euro-zone all-property capital values in 2022 and we expect a similar size fall this year. But while the latest REIT data show landlords were in a better financial position than before the GFC, the double blow of higher rates and weaker incomes could quickly lead to an increase in forced sales and an even sharper fall in values.
