vdp Property Price Indices: German residential and commercial property prices rise further in q 2.2015

- Multi-family houses: +7.6%, owner-occupied residential housing +4.4%
- Office properties: +0.8%, retail properties +3.0%

Prices on the German residential and commercial property markets continued on their upward trajectory in the second quarter of 2015. Calculated on the basis of real transaction data, the vdp Property Price Index for the German market as a whole climbed by 4.9% between April and June 2015 compared with the corresponding period one year earlier.

“The demand for German residential and commercial properties remains strong due to the lack of attractive alternative investment returns and Germany’s very stable economy. We are seeing the strongest hike in prices for multi-family houses, which are still highly sought after by both institutional and private investors. The weakness of the euro is an additional factor that is spurring demand by foreign investors, whose main focus is on office and retail properties but increasingly also on multi-family houses. This is putting further upward pressure on the already high level of demand in this segment,” says Jens Tolckmitt, Chief Executive of the vdp.

The performance of individual market segments and all index data relating to the different vdp Property Price Indices (2003-2015), including charts and tables, are set out in the enclosed publication.
