GERMANY RANKS TOP FOR EUROPEAN REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT

Mon, 2017-01-30 17:45 -- admin

A recently released report Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2017 has named Berlin as the top European city for real estate investment this year. The forecast, published jointly by ULI and PwC, is the latest in an annual series of publications since 2003 that summarizes opinions of hundreds of leading real estate professionals, including investors, fund managers, developers, property companies, lenders, brokers, advisers and consultants.

Germany has four cities ranked in the top five in this year’s forecast, with Berlin in first position followed by Hamburg and Frankfurt in second and third place respectively, and Munich placed in fifth position. In the words of one pan-European investor consulted for the report, “Germany replaces the UK as Europe's Number 1 safe haven”.

Berlin’s rise to leading position began two years ago when it replaced Munich as Europe’s top investment market in the ULI and PwC Emerging Trends in Real Estate Europe 2015 report. At the time it was noted that while Berlin had traditionally been dominated by domestic buyers, international investors had begun to divert capital into the city. One perceived advantage was that its prices were deemed less costly than other major German cities.

Berlin scored highly in all four categories: investment, development, and prospects for rental and capital growth in the joint ULI and PwC survey for 2017. Germany’s capital city has a range of attributes that enhance its investment appeal, including being an emerging media and technology hotspot, having a young population and being considered a multicultural, fast growing, trendy destination. One international fund manager quoted in the report said, "Berlin is a big city where we will see the most growth over the next 10 years".

FFA Real Estate has a 150 million euro portfolio in Germany, which currently consists of 9 income-generating properties in the German commercial real estate market.
