Overview of the real estate sector post-pandemic and in the midst of the Ukrainian crisis

The real estate sector in Northern Italy has gone through periods of growth and change in recent years, thanks to its strategic location and strong local entrepreneurship. In this article, we explore emerging trends, growth potential and the risks and challenges that characterise the future of real estate investment in Northern Italy.

Where the real estate sector comes from

The COVID-19 pandemic and the recent crisis due to the war in Ukraine have created new challenges for the global economy and businesses.

After the pandemic and the Ukrainian crisis, the economy of northern Italy is showing signs of recovery and resilience. The region has benefited from several factors, including:

  • Economic diversification: Northern Italy is characterised by a diversified economy with key sectors such as manufacturing, agriculture, tourism and technology. This diversification has enabled the region to better cope with the negative impacts of the pandemic and the Ukrainian crisis.
  • Public and private investment: to stimulate economic recovery, both government and private investors have increased investment in infrastructure, research and development and innovation. These investments have helped create new opportunities for growth and employment in the region.
  • Relocalisation of supply chains: following the pandemic and the Ukrainian crisis, many companies started to review their supply chains, seeking to reduce dependence on foreign suppliers. This led to an increasing demand for production and logistics space in Northern Italy, such as business parks and logistics hubs.

Where the real estate market is going

  • Sustainability and innovation: an increasing trend in real estate investment in Northern Italy is the emphasis on sustainability and innovation. Investors and property developers are seeking to develop projects that reduce environmental impact, improve energy efficiency and promote the use of innovative technologies.
  • Urban regeneration: Another growing trend is urban regeneration and the transformation of disused industrial areas into new residential, commercial and recreational spaces. This process offers new investment opportunities and contributes to improving the quality of life in northern Italian cities.
  • Increased demand: after the pandemic crisis and then the more recent one caused by the rise in oil prices due to the war in Ukraine, Northern Italy is experiencing an increasing demand for residential, commercial and logistics space. This is due to several factors, including the post-pandemic economic recovery, the attraction of foreign investments and the relocation of supply chains.
  • Investment opportunities: the growth potential in the region offers numerous real estate investment opportunities. Investors in real estate and real estate can benefit from attractive returns and a dynamic and expanding real estate market.

But it is not all doom and gloom. The risks and challenges facing the market and AKNO Group

  • Price fluctuations: real estate investments can be subject to price fluctuations, due to factors such as economic uncertainty, changes in supply and demand and government policies. It is important to closely monitor the market and adopt risk management strategies to mitigate these effects.
  • Regulation and tax policies: real estate investors also face challenges related to local regulations and tax policies. For example, there may be restrictions on the purchase of real estate by foreign investors or changes in tax laws that affect the profitability of investments.

What is the (near) future that awaits us?

In the meantime, it is good not to make too long-term plans, because we have seen first-hand how investment horizons have shrunk due to the uncertainties of our time. However, there is no doubt that the future of real estate investment in Northern Italy presents many opportunities and challenges. Trends such as sustainability and urban regeneration offer new investment possibilities, while the region’s economic growth can lead to attractive returns.

In this general landscape, investors also face risks and challenges such as price fluctuations and tax policies. The key to success lies in closely monitoring the market, relying on professionals who know how to interpret the real estate sector and the opportunities it offers.
