Property can be one of the best investments you can make and one of the biggest financial decisions of your life so it’s important that you get it right from the start to ensure that you are making the right investment.
Germany is one of the most stable and growing real estate countries in Europe, in fact Germany is now ranked among the top 6 locations for investments in Europe this year.
So why is investing in Germany a good real estate opportunity?
The German Property Market
In 2017 the German real estate investment market accounted for €68 billion which was a significant increase from the €54 billion invested the year before. Germany’s property market offers many benefits for property investors that include; its growth of population, ability to generate new business from Brexit and strong economic conditions as well as political stability.
Is there a risk of a Property Bubble?
Since Germany’s house prices have climbed to about 60% since 2010, there are growing concerns that there could be a risk of a property bubble as a result. A property bubble occurs following a boom in real estate prices, once property prices constantly increase, at some point the bubble will burst resulting in a quick decline in prices.
As it stands experts predict that there is no risk of a property bubble because rising property prices are only an indicator of a possible bubble. Other factors of a property bubble would include people struggling to pay off their mortgages and an increase in speculative buying which are not evident in the current German market, according to Anja Diers, the chairwoman of the Gutachterausschuss.
There is a continued real estate demand and a strong economic forecast so it looks like 2018 will be shaping up to be another year of growth.
