Dear readers,
with our places & spaces newsletter, we regularly keep you updated on the latest real estate topics and articles that we prepared for you on our places & spaces portal. Today, we especially would like to draw your attention to the article by Christian Hunziker who researched the growing interest of  investors in the “Nordics”, the Scandinavian countries. The editorial team of places & spaces hopes that reading our newsletter will brighten your day. Let’s stay in touch. The safety of your data is important to us. Below, you will find more information how we are handling the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

A safe haven in the north
The Nordic countries have long been considered an unimportant location on the mental maps of international property investors. This has fundamentally changed – because economic growth and stability are increasingly attractive to investors.
For “app”-and-coming neighbourhoods
Digital products for networking neighbourhoods are bringing new life to urban districts. Real estate firms and users are both benefiting from the added value offered by apps.
Climate action as a driver of innovation
Germany’s climate targets for 2050 are ambitious. The aim is to make existing buildings nearly CO₂-neutral. Innovative solutions are helping major property managers recognise and actively manage the climate risks to which their buildings are exposed.
PropTech Innovation Award
The power of innovation. The international competition for real estate start-ups featured an impressively broad array of ideas and submissions.
