The Office is a start-up itself, thus BIL's support came in the perfect moment to complete pending works and to further get our offering to the market. We appreciate BIL as a true partner inspiring to further develop our path of bringing a new wave of entrepreneurship to the Grand-Duchy</i>”, said Gosia Kramer, Managing partner of The Office. </p> <p>Pierre-Olivier Rotheval, Head of Innovation and Marketing at BIL added: “<i>We keep an eye on all the initiatives likely to contribute to the development of the start-up ecosystem in Luxembourg, in order to build a Start-up Nation.

BIL IMMOindex: the housing market is more buoyant than everhttps://www.bil.com/en/bil-group/pressroom/news/Pages/bil-immoindex-the-housing-market-is-more-buoyant-than-ever.aspxBIL IMMOindex: the housing market is more buoyant than ever<div class="grid-adaptive small clear-div"> <div class="sub-column-50"> <div class="grid-youtube"> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zO1gpM6Udjo?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""></iframe> </div> </div> <div class="sub-column-50"> <img src="{%BIL_Internet_Root_URL_Luxembourg%}/PublishingImages/site-groupebil/news/immoindex-graph-en.jpg"> </div> </div> <p>The BIL IMMO<i>index</i> increased from +1.58 in the second quarter of 2016 to +1.80<sup>1</sup> in Q4. At +0.87 in Q4 2015, it more than doubled in a year. This rise reflects a nationwide housing market rally begun at the start of 2016 and continued throughout the year, slightly gaining momentum in the process. <br>The reasons for the renewed rise in the index include a sustained climb in housing prices (+7.7% between Q4 2015 and Q4 2016), the credit boom (+25.4% increase in the volume of mortgage loans compared to end-2015) and, to a lesser extent, a robust construction sector (+5.7% year-on-year growth in Q4 2016).</p> <p>“<i>The index more than doubled between end-2015 and end-2016, powered by rising housing prices and the credit boom. Although it is on the verge of overheating, the market’s ascent is underpinned by solid fundamentals: a growing population and a robust national economy. An increase on the supply side, rather than a decrease in demand, would serve to slow the rise and help move the IMMO<i>index</i> closer to an equilibrium,</i>” explains Marcel Leyers, Chief of Corporate and Institutional Banking at BIL.</p> <p>Launched in October 2015 and developed by BIL in partnership with PwC Luxembourg, the BIL IMMO<i>index</i> is an indicator of housing market trends in Luxembourg for professional, institutional and retail investors.</p> <p>Updated regularly and published every six months, the index is based on price changes on the selling and rental markets, as well as factors underlying supply and demand such as the national economy, construction activity and demographic change. A total of seven ratios are integrated to produce the BIL IMMO<i>index</i>, a clear indicator that gives an overview of Luxembourg housing market in the last 35 years.</p> <p>The complete analysis for each region of Luxembourg is available at <a href="{%BIL_Internet_Root_URL_Luxembourg%}/immoindex/index-en.html">www.bil.com/immoindex</a>.</p> <p><small><sup>1</sup>The index runs on a scale of -3 to +3 and reads the temperature of the market. At +3, the maximum level, the market is thought to be “overheating”. At the other end of the scale, a negative index means that the market is lacklustre, and a level of -3 indicates a stagnant, “frozen” market.</small></p>7/18/2017 11:00:00 AM
