Projects in Germany

Berlin is consistently ranked as one of the best property markets in the world by real estate experts. It is home to the fastest growing economy in Germany, which is arguably the strongest and most stable economy in the world.

Berlin has stepped up on the international stage, attracting new residents from all over the world. The city is one of Europe's top tourism destinations welcoming 25 million visitors per year and a competitive tech hub of more than 170,000 startups.

Berlin has been named the #1 City in Europe for Real Estate Investment by PWC (Emerging Trends in Real Estate, Europe 2016) for the 3rd time in a row and #2 World City for Quality of Life by Monocle Magazine (2016 Quality of Life Index).

Berlin is the top city for investment and development in 2018, noting its growing population and booming IT sector.

High demand

Berlin attracts 40,000 to 60,000 new residents per year, resulting in vacancy rates near zero and a housing deficit of 20,000 units per year. Тhe scarcity of housing stock, in addition to the population growth and the thriving startup culture, is one of the strongest indicators that prices will continue to rise.

Now it's a perfect time to buy. Investors can expect a safe legal and political environment, a highly quality of build, and huge demand from tenants to rent property.

Competitive prices

Despite the scarcity of housing, Berlin's home prices remain low relative to other major European metropolises, as well as to other large German cities, attracting both foreign and domestic investors.

Strong growth

The German capital's real estate market is experiencing rapid growth. With unemployment falling and more people moving to Berlin, drawn by both employment opportunities and a thriving local culture, long term growth is expected. Home prices went up almost 15% from March 2017 to March 2018, while average rents increased 11%.

Berlin becoming the German Silicon Valley
The influx of new residents to Berlin has much to do with the city's robust start-up culture, particularly in the IT sector. According to a June 2018 Ernst & Young report on venture capital in Germany, the country's top 100 startups have received $8.5 billion in funding. Nearly 70% of those startups, which include furniture retailers, streaming music companies and food delivery services, are based in Berlin.

Startups and household companies like Google, Samsung, Pfizer and Siemens are being drawn to the capital for its vast reserves of talent. Recruitment costs are on average 40% lower than in other German cities. What's more, half of all startup personnel come from abroad. That's true for only one other innovation center in the world: Silicon Valley.

Many of the new Berliners employed in this sector are renters, not buyers, so they don't have a direct impact on the prime real estate market in the city, but, a great many startup millionaires from other countries, and some German ones, too, have bought properties in the city.

Furthermore, young IT workers flooding the city contribute to the housing scarcity and drive up rental prices, potentially beneficial to investors who intend to rent out the properties they purchase. They also contribute to Berlin's cultural cachet, another draw for many new residents.
