Real estate represents a significant portion of most people’s wealth, and this is true as well for many homeowners in Greece. Papers should aim to engage with factors that drive real estate markets in Europe, among them demographic composition of a population, income, migration patterns, the interest rate, the overall health of the economy, government legislation etc.

You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.
