Mature market, active market

According to EY analysts, in H1 2014 we have observed a significant increase in the investment volume in commercial real estate markets in the CSE region. What encourages investors to invest in these countries is an attractive rate of return and the improving economic situation and low interest rates compared to Western Europe. Poland and Czech remain leading markets among the countries of the region.

Transactions and related changes are the topic of this issue's articles by experts from EY, who explain how to effectively prepare to the sale of a real estate or a real estate company in legal and formal terms. You can also read about the two most popular forms of acquiring real properties in Poland, namely the share deal and the asset deal. Each form has both pros and cons.

Since we are talking about buying a property, we cannot forget about the issue of financing it. Leasing is an increasingly popular form of financing or refinancing of the acquisition of commercial real estate in Poland. The structure of a leasing transaction is a bit more complicated than in the case of a regular bank loan; however, tax advantages make this form of financing worth considering, as explained it detail by experts from TPA Horwath and Schoenherr law firm.
