Our latest report shares the key insights shared during discussions at GRI Club Europe’s recent Club Meeting in Prague. Read the full report here.

The biggest players active in CEE gathered to assess the investment scenario in the Czech Republic, with topics including the benefits for investing in the country, the best investment opportunities, and how to stay proactive in the current wait-and-see scenario affecting much of the global real estate market.

The conversations at the meeting showcased the remarkable resilience of the Czech Republic's real estate market amidst European fluctuations, offering promising prospects for investors and homeowners despite challenges in achieving international housing affordability standards. 

Prague particularly stands out with robust demand for both residential and commercial properties, though a shortage in new apartment construction drives a surge in rental demand, especially in central and emerging areas.
