DG HYP publishes study “The German Real Estate Market 2017/2018”

Low supply boosts office and residential property rents - Retail rents stable, at a high level

The German real estate market continues to benefit from the positive macroeconomic situation. The completion rate remains on a lower level compared to the high demand for office and residential property space in German metropolitan areas; thus, further rent increases are to be expected for these segments in 2017 and 2018, whereas in the retail sector, near-term growth is unlikely in the seven top locations due to already high prime rents and increasing e-commerce. These are the results of the latest research report published by DG HYP, covering developments in Hamburg, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich.

Dr Georg Reutter, Chairman of the Management Board at DG HYP, says: “Compared to other European countries, Germany is a sought-after investment location. The stable economic situation forms the basis for ongoing high real estate demand. Even though the interest rate environment is becoming less advantageous, we expect the positive real estate development to continue in 2018.”
