JLL analysts have evaluated transparency of real estate markets in 100 countries and 158 cities of the world in accordance with 186 criteria grouped into six categories.
These are indicators of investment returns, fundamental market indicators, the disclosure of financial information, regulatory and legal aspects, the process of concluding transactions, and the sustainability of the sector.
So, the leaders of the rating are the English-speaking countries — Great Britain, Australia and the USA. However, some markets of continental Europe have also ranked high. The most notable improvements were demonstrated by the Netherlands. Sweden fell into the category of markets “with a high degree of transparency” for the first time in the history of the study.
