Berlin – “The top market for real estate investment”

The Brandenburg gate seen at night in Berlin

City overview

Germany's capital city, with a population of more than 3.7 million, is the second most populous city in the European Union. According to a report by PWC and the Urban Land Institute, Berlin was named the top market for real estate investment and development for three years in a row (2016-18).

With around 40,000 business registrations and more than 500 startup companies each year, Berlin is undisputedly Germany's founder capital and is expanding its nationwide lead. The capital is particularly appealing to founders in the creative sectors and technology, thanks to much lower real estate costs and office expenses than other major European cities. Berlin attracts young and highly qualified people from all over the world. Roughly 40 percent of its residents are younger than 35. The high quality of life with comparably low living costs, eclectic nightlife and international environment are the reasons why a lot of international entrepreneurs, creatives and venture capitalists decide to call Berlin their second home.

People from more than 190 countries make this city a truly international metropolis. 711,000 foreign nationals were registered in Berlin at the end of 2017, with an increase of 55,000 every year.

Real estate market trends & outlook

Berlin has a huge potential to grow into a new digital, technology and service hub, that connects with many other major hubs around the world. 250,000 jobs were created in the last decade, while the government's extensive regeneration campaign could lead to additional 400,000 new residents by 2030. Unemployment rates has dropped by 4% and reached record lows.

Berlin remains as the city with the highest real estate purchase price growth rates for condominium apartments since 2008. Even though, the growth of property purchase prices has slowed down, the growth rate is still 9.1% year-on-year with an asking price of around €4,000/sqm in the first half of 2018. Buying single-family homes in Berlin cost about €658,681 on average, an increase of 5.7% compared to previous year. Rental prices for apartments/houses in Berlin also grew by 9.1% year-on-year to their current level of €11.65/sqm/month in the first half of 2018.

Berlin real estate market is also becoming more and more competitive. Berlin's severe housing deficit, paired with a strong demand due to continual population growth, is a strong indicator for a bullish property market outlook. Coupled with low vacancy rates (1.2%) and low homeownership rate (14%), rent revenue will continue to rise, and real estate owners in Berlin can also make a significant capital gain when reselling. If you are living abroad but are also looking for a second home in Berlin, this is a great time to buy an apartment, as Berlin property prices are expected to continue to rise.

We’ve partnered up with multiple property listing pages and real estate agents to help you find a home. For instance, if you’re planning to buy a property in Berlin, particularly new build real estate, neubau kompass is a great site to check out!
