Battle of ideas: USA or Europe: Which is the better place for real estate investments in post-corona times?


Eltville, 02 June 2020. Social, political and economic trends greatly influence the business models of property market actors. Thus, we must examine how the corona pandemic effects global economies, societies, as well as real estate markets.

Different regions demand different solutions. The corona pandemic has hit the US harder than Germany and the countries’ approachs to crisis management differ greatly. What are the short-term effects for different asset classes? How will corona impact the way we live, work and shop?  What are the key long-term drivers for real estate investments in US and Europe? Which regions will outperform? Will a new phase of suburbanization emerge? It’s the economy, stupid. Or is it politics? Or virology now? In short: What can we expect following the corona crisis on both sides of the pond?

Professor Richard B. Peiser, Ph.D, of the Harvard Graduate School of Design will delve into these questions in a live, online debate with Prof. Dr. Tobias Just (FRICS); Chair of Real Estate Economics at the University of Regensburg and Director of the IREBS Immobilienakademie. Judith Gabler, Director of Operations of RICS, Europe will be moderating this most certainly heated discussion.

With this as a backdrop, we cordially invite you on Wednesday, 3 June 2020, at 6:30 p.m. to our livestream debate via ZOOM. Within the framework our long-standing partnership with Harvard University, our now annual exchange with Professor Peiser will take place for the first time online this year. We consider ourselves honored to welcome the esteemed Judith Gabler from RICS as a moderator. For over 25 consecutive years, both IREBS courses of study have been accredited by RICS. We would be pleased to welcome you to our online live presentation. The registration link can be found below:
