DIFI Q2/2016 falls again after reaching a brief high

Tuesday, 05.07.2016

The German Real Estate Finance Index (DIFI) has fallen by  6.7 points to 8.3 points in the second quarter of 2016. After a brief high, the index has once again returned to its Autumn 2015 level, falling by around 20 points in the past year. This fall is due both to less optimistic assessments of the financing situation over the past six months and increasing pessimism in financing expectations for the coming six months.
