The German Real Estate Finance Index (DIFI): Finance Providers' Expectation Drop Again

The German Real Estate Finance Index (DIFI) reflects survey participants’ assessments of the current situation in (past six months) and expectations (coming six months) for the German real estate finance markets. It is produced quarterly and is calculated on the basis of an average of the results for the office, retail, logistics and residential real estate market segments. These figures reflect the percentage of positive and negative responses received from survey participants relating to the current situation in and financing expectations for the German real estate market. DIFI is produced and published in cooperation with JLL and the Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsforschung (Centre for European Economic Research, ZEW). Sign up with the authors for receiving the full report here.

The German Real Estate Finance Index (DIFI) reported by JLL and ZEW has once again dropped in the 4th quarter by 2.3 points to 4.4, which is the third decline in a row.

Another interesting table in the report are the interest expectations which I would take with a pinch of salt as no one can predict the US policy at this point and this might have significant impact on any economic development including interest rates.
