The German Real Estate Finance Index (DIFI) reflects survey participants’ assessments of the current situation in (past six months) and expectations (coming six months) for the German real estate finance markets. It is produced quarterly and is calculated on the basis of an average of the results for the office, retail, logistics and residential real estate market segments. These figures reflect the percentage of positive and negative responses received from survey participants relating to the current situation in and financing expectations for the German real estate market. DIFI is produced and published in cooperation with JLL and the Zentrum für Europäische Wirtschaftsforschung (Centre for European Economic Research, ZEW).
