After the low point experienced in the middle of the summer, the real estate market turnover strengthened in August based on Duna House's estimate, writes uzletem.hu.
The 9,748 sales and purchases estimated by the real estate agency group show an increase of more than 8% compared to the previous month, but still, a 14% lower turnover compared to the same period of last year.
Although August has always been stronger in the past five years, following the traditional trend, experts expect further expansion in the fall real estate market, which is about to change.
