Prices for German residential and commercial properties in 2015

- Residential property prices rise by 5.9% in 2015, commercial property prices by 2%

Prices in the German real estate market continued on their upward trajectory in the fourth quarter of 2015. Calculated on the basis of real transaction data, the vdp property price index for the German market as a whole rose by 5% on an annual average for 2015. Residential property prices increased by 5.9% (2014: +5%) and prices for commercial properties went up by 2% (2014: 3.8%).

“We are still witnessing the strongest surge in prices in the multi-family houses market segment. Rents are also on the rise, but given the general yield environment and the lack of alternative investments, investors remain prepared to accept increasingly lower returns. In light of the strong demand for housing, we cannot for the time being expect the rent situation to ease up. Whether investors will put up with the current low level of returns in the long term, however, depends to a great extent on future monetary policy and on the investors’ assessment of risk,” Jens Tolckmitt, Chief Executive of the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp), commented.
