Residential Investment

Market in Minutes - Germany residential investment market Q1 2018

"The German residential investment market enjoyed the most dynamic start to a year since the record year of 2015. The transaction volume in the first quarter of 2018 totalled around €4bn, representing an increase of 9% compared with the opening quarter of last year.The top seven cities accounted for 36% of the transaction volume, which is materially ahead of the five-year average of 48%. The fundamentals favour investments outside of the A-cities. The number of households, and hence demand for housing, is expected to rise in around half of all districts (in German: Kreis) and urban districts (in German: Landkreis) by 2030."

Residential Investment

Market in Minutes - Germany residential investment market Q2 2018

"With a transaction volume of €2.6bn, the third quarter yielded the lowest level of investment of any quarter in the current year. Investment during the first nine months of 2018 totalled almost €11.3bn, representing an increase of 8% compared with the corresponding period last year. The increase in the transaction volume is (still), to a large extent, attributable to price rather than volume. The average price per apartment in the A-cities has even exceeded the €200,000 mark for the first time. This recordhigh price is largely attributable to the fact that development acquisitions have accounted for more than a third of the overall transaction volume in the A-cities during the year to date.A separate analysis of purchases of developments and existing property reveals that prices in both segments have only increased marginally, i.e. by less than 5% compared with last year."
