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."

Outlook: German real estate market in 2019

"Hand on heart, if somebody had told you ten years ago that property prices in Germany would at least double over the coming decade, would you have believed them? On 15 September 2008, investment bank Lehman Brothers filed for insolvency, marking the nadir of the global financial crisis. The crisis would lay the foundations for a perhaps unparalleled real estate boom, not least in Germany. Over the last ten years, purchases of residential and commercial property by institutional investors have totalled half a trillion euros (€120bn for residential property and €380bn for commercial property). Such inflows of capital are unprecedented in the German real estate market. This surge in demand has driven prices to an extent that nobody would have truly expected. Capital values have doubled across practically all property sectors during this period, reaching new record levels across the board."

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."
