An interest rate drop from 3% to 2%, can increase prices by 9,5%. In Febelfin Academy’s Break Out Session at FIF 2021, you will learn more about the impact of macroeconomic factors on the housing market. 

Impact on value 

Location, location, location… The location obviously has a large impact on the value of a property. But there are also other factors that have an impact on the market as a whole. During the Break Out Session at FIF2021, we study the housing market from a macroeconomic point of view. We look at how the interest rate, income growth and government policy impact prices. We also look at factors that can influence prices in the short run, such as consumer confidence and yields on alternative investments.  

Under or overvalued 

And how do we know whether the market is correctly valued? We study methods that can help us decide whether the market is under or overvalued. Finally, we discuss the current situation and the outlook of the Belgian housing market.
