Research report: Mortgage lending in Poland, 2020
Mortgage lending in Poland, 2020-2022

pdf file Research Report: "Mortgage lending in Poland, 2020-2022"

Residential construction in Poland sustained fast growth in 2019. The number of completions surged by nearly 12%, while the number of starts jumped by almost 7% in 2019. Recently, residential real estate has become increasingly popular among investots due to growing rents and a higher demand for rental properties. The boom is reflected in growing valuations, in particular, across large cities where prices are at multi-year highs. The growth in demand for real estate is also fuelled by negative real interest rates, which discourage individuals from holding bank deposits and which promote material investments, offering preservation of purchasing power.

Mortgage lending accelerated in 2019. Sales of new contracts surged to over PLN 62 billon (EUR 14+ billion). Looking forward, in our base scenario, we expect new mortgage lending to cool-off slightly in 2020 but then to resume the solid growth in 2021 and 2022.
