pdf file Research Report: "Mortgage lending in Poland, 2019-2021"

Residential construction in Poland accelerated again in 2018 extending growth trends observed since 2014. The number of completions jumped by 9%, the number of new permits increased by 3% and the number of starts surged by 19% in 2018. The key driving forces of new residential construction remained unchanged. Stable interest rates, rising purchasing power of individuals and positive consumer sentiment fuel new purchases. Moreover, real estate investments are increasingly popular in view of growing residential rents and due to low opportunity cost of holding cash or deposits.

Mortgage lending accelerated in 2018. Sales of new mortgage loans increased by 11% and 20% in terms of volume and value respectively, while the average loan ticket size increased by 9%. Looking forward, in our base scenario, we expect new mortgage lending to keep growing steadily through 2021. The total outstanding is likely to increase by 6% p.a.
