Germany now Europe’s top commercial property market
Germany edged ahead of the UK in the ranking of Europe’s most active markets for commercial real estate investment in the thrid quarter for the first time since 2012, following the uncertainty
unleashed on the UK market following the Brexit vote in June, according to research from Real Capital Analytics.
The UK market slid 51% to €10.0 billion of completed commercial property transactions in July through September compared with a year earlier, according to RCA’s data. The drop was magnified by the pound’s depreciation over the period, and made it the weakest three- month period for the British market since Q2 in 2012. At the same time the UK’s share of Europe’s transaction activity was the smallest by value in six years. Germany’s investment volumes totalled €13.6 billion in the quarter, a 34% drop from a year earlier.

*Leading economy in Europe*
With GDP of more than 3 tn € in 2015, Germany is the strongest economy in Europe and ranks fourth worldwide. With a population of 81.3 million, Germany is also the most important market in Europe and a leading investment location, attracting the world’s 500 largest firms. With a price- adjusted GDP increase of 1.7 % in 2015, Germany was able to exceed the average growth of the European Union by a clear- cut margin. Economic expansion of around 2 % p. a. is also forecast for the years ahead. So Germany remains the economic dynamo of the eurozone. In 2015, the country’s labour market also continued to develop positively. The average unemployment rate is at the historically low level of 6.4 %, with the number of jobless at its lowest point in 24 years. towards the end of 2015, the Ifo business climate Index - the most important barometer of sentiment in Germany – climbed appreciably and in December registered just on 109 points.

* Rental Values *
When comparing the rental apartment markets of the seven most populous German cities, Berlin has a few special features. Firstly, it has the lowest rental values. Only Berlin has a current median asking rent that is still less than €9.00 per square metre, albeit by only a small amount. Although construction of new apartment buildings has sharply increased, in 2014 – adjusted for population – it was still the weakest in the seven cities. The owner-occupied housing rate, around 15 per cent, is well below those in all the other cities. Starting at only around 10 per cent at the time the Berlin Wall fell, the owner-occupation rate has considerably increased since.
The main reasons for the low level of rents are the lowest household purchasing power and the highest unemployment rate of the seven cities. The relatively tardy abolition of rent control in Berlin is still having an effect as well. Whereas West Germany consigned rent control to the archives back in 1975, in Berlin it continued until 1987, with various transitional arrangements alleviating the effects of the abolition in subsequent years. Rents in the eastern part of the city were subject to state control, as there was, de facto, no privately financed housing construction in East Germany. In this respect, the low rental values are still a delayed consequence of the period when the city was divided and the crisis of adjustment after German reunification, which is yet to be overcome.
Berlin is divided into 190 postcode areas, each with a population between around 2,000 and 36,700. The only outrider is the area around the Olympic Stadium, which has less than 200 residents. Housing market data at postcode level allows insight into the small-scale structure of asking rents and the typical sizes of apartments in the area. They give a much more detailed picture than the initial consideration of whole administrative districts, which have an average population of some 297,000. The number of apartments on offer in most of the 190 areas is sufficient for statistical analysis. Most of them are also large enough to enable special segments of the market, i.e. the most expensive and cheapest deciles of the offers, to be analysed. This shows whether there are local luxury markets or whether there is a particularly modest low-priced segment. A few areas have both. Their residents could include a range of social classes.
- HOUSE COST RATIO -
Berlin’s residential property and apartment building markets are still experiencing a powerful boom. The citywide median asking price per unit area for condominium apartments has risen by 10.1 per cent, to exactly €3,000 per square metre, while apartment investments are up by as much as 18.5 per cent, to €1,947. Private and institutional investors are betting on the continuing growth of the city – higher population figures as well as a stronger economic performance and increasing incomes. They are taking note of the prices, which are still low in comparison with other major German and European cities, and the low rate of owner occupation, still only around 15 per cent. The sustained low level of interest rates is another factor. For owner-occupiers, the instalments on a long-term mortgage after buying can sometimes be lower than the rent on a comparable apartment. Landlords of individual apartments can often turn a profit from the start, while institutional investors value the higher return than that on bonds and the greater security compared with shares.
*German Real Estate is a Hot Investment — A Look at Berlin*
Jitters over terrorist attacks, immigration strife, and economic instability due to Brexit seem to have put some European real estate investment property on shaky ground lately, but there are bright spots, too.
Kate Everett-Allen, head of international research at Knight Frank names Berlin and Munich on a short list of standout European performers with price growth rates of 9 percent and 12 percent, respectively, in 2015. You can find those figures and a lot more in the real estate investment advisory firm’s 2016 Wealth Report.
Germany’s capital, Berlin, where real estate values have doubled since 2007, is a case in point: The growing city is an important center for high-tech, creative, and media industries. Rubina Real Estate experts note that Berlin is a gateway to Central and Eastern Europe, has a well-developed telecommunications infrastructure, and a well-educated population of 3.5 million that skews young. The city continues to draw new businesses eager to appeal to young professional talent attracted to its progressive vibe and amenities. The demographic between the age of 25 and 30 is growing at the fastest rate.
“Berlin was a very prosperous city with lots of cultural happenings and great architecture until the downfall of Hitler,” said German-born Bernadette Schaeffler, owner of the Bernadette Schaeffler Collection luxury home furnishings showroom in the Dallas Design District. “During the Cold War, it somehow slept like Sleeping Beauty. Since the reunification, people built on top of it. Parts of Berlin are historical, other parts extremely modern. Berlin is cosmopolitan, multicultural, and American friendly. There’s a big expat population — they all feel at home. In general, the cost of living is lower, and rents affordable; that said, real estate prices are going up.”
Along with growth, reasons that analysts say Berlin and other major German cities stand out as investment opportunities are undervalued property values relative to cities such as London and Paris, the strength of the German economy, a housing shortage, and the trajectory of rising prices tipping a purchasing trend, especially in light of low interest returns as an alternative investment.
For those looking to seek properties to generate rental income, it’s interesting to note that Germany has a high percentage of renters vs. homeowners, which goes back to the destruction of housing and subsequent public policies encouraging rental since World War II. In Berlin, 46 percent of residents rent. Rapidly rising rates led to legislation enacted in June 2015, literally called a rent “brake,” to limit yearly rent increases to 10 percent.
It’s hard to say what’s best long term. With the world becoming more and more mobile, investment in hub cities that draw businesses seem solid. On the flip side, slowing German exports have raised concerns that the German economy may not be as strong as some think. Some believe Germany’s market is a real estate bubble that will burst, especially when a dearth of baby boomers who are current homeowners flood the market with homes to sell upon their retirement.

BERLIN TOMORROW: POPULATION IS GROWING BY 5% AND HOUSING PRICES ALMOST BY 15% TILL 2030
As a new Study shows: Berlin’s Population is growing in the next 15 Years by nearly 5%. Furthermore Real Estate Prices will rise by almost 15%.
Berlin sets up a new record again: Nowhere else in German cities is the population growing as much as in Berlin. And with the increasing population the demand for tenements rises too. According to a new study there will live 4.75% more people in Berlin in 2030 which leads to a further increase of housing prices by 14.49% in the next 15 years.
In accordance with the study „Wohnatlas 2016 – Leben in der Stadt“ is this upgrowth mainly caused by the continuing inflow of refugees and the ongoing positive net migration towards Berlin. The appropriate experts assume that with each percent Berlin’s population is growing prices of condominiums rise by 3.5% and housing prices by 1.9%.
Refugees‘ House-Hunting trigger off Cascade Effects
„The inflow of refugees does not directly affect housing prices but it provokes a so-called cascade effect“, the experts write: Because newcomers need mainly low-priced tenements already existing demand rises steeply which leads to an overall upward trend in rents. When rents get more expensive people invest in privat owned apartments or houses what, again, pushes the amount of needed investment capital.
Interestingly, for the above mentioned scenario the experts take an abrupt abatement of the refugee crisis for granded. Their analysis bases on the fact that till 2030 just one milion refugees will come to Germany. Just as much as in the year 2015.
TD: German Property Index: all-time high returns for 2015
Total returns for real estate in Germany increased to 13.3% in 2015, the highest since reunification (2014: 13.1%), according to Bulwiengesa's German Property Index (GPI). The total return consists of appreciation and cash flow. A weighted average is calculated for each property type. Accordingly, office properties showed the highest total return (rising from 11.4% to 15.5%), followed by the logistics segment (11.1% to 12.9%), while there were slight declines for retail and residential real estate. The significant increase for office property was particularly due to capital growth increases revealing, among other factors, an ever greater decoupling of investment and rental markets. Bulwiengesa said that slight growth is expected again for this year, but that the top of the current cycle has almost been reached.
Recent data point to a reasonably strong finish to 2015 for the
German economy, led primarily by the broad-based recovery
in business investment and strong household consumption.
Economic activity has also been boosted by a steady rise in
industrial production and new orders in Q4, as external
demand from key trading partners strengthened. GDP growth
is estimated to have been 1.5% in 2015, marginally down on
the 1.6% recorded in 2014. Political tensions within the
governing coalition - linked to Chancellor Angela Merkel’s
handling of the refugee crisis - eased in December after she
agreed to reduce the flow of migrants to Germany, but gained
momentum in early 2016 again as it became obvious that
there is no easy way to come to an European agreement for a
common strategy to manage the crisis.
Real estate news: The property market in Berlin
The market is already quite tight in all of the city's most popular neighbourhoods, which is causing an increase in demand in mid-market and secondary residential areas. However, there is still potential for new developments in all parts of the city. More living space is being created by re-development projects such as Forum Museumsinsel in Berlin-Mitte, where a new residential quarter is currently being built. Other prime locations in the centre of Berlin can be found in Tiergarten and Prenzlauer Berg. Elderly couples of a higher income bracket generally prefer freehold apartments in Wilmersdorf and Charlottenburg, while families tend to favour single-family homes in the more quiet neighbourhoods like Dahlem, Grunewald, Frohnau, Köpenick and Lichterfelde - with waterfront locations being especially popular. Due to the attractive yields and appreciation potential, capital investors are particularly interested in trendy areas within the S-Bahn circle line, such as Neukölln, Wedding or Weissensee. The number of property transactions has declined for the first time after the record results in previous years. In the residential home segment, 2,789 houses with a total value of 954.40 million euros were sold. On average, buyers paid 342,222 euros for a house (+3% compared to the previous year). In 2014, the average transaction volume for apartments increased by 6% to 192,600 euros.
