Europe’s real estate industry expects more and better in 2014. It is more confident about its prospects and its ability to improve profits. Headcounts, too, have a better chance of growing.

This belief is spread widely across the continent. Europe’s economy is growing, and political uncertainty over its future declining. Ireland is seen to be improving; Southern Europe is thought to be past the worst. Equity is flowing in, and debt is becoming easier to find, though how much easier, depends on where and for what.
