vdp real estate indices: Continued rise in prices for German residential and commercial properties in the first quarter of 2016

  • Multi-family houses: +8.0%, owner-occupied housing: +4.7%
  • Office properties: +5.0%, retail properties: +1.5%

Prices in Germany’s residential and commercial real estate market continued to rise in the first quarter of 2016. Calculated on the basis of real transaction data, the vdp property price index for the German market as a whole went up by 5.8% between January and March 2016 compared with the corresponding quarter one year earlier.

“Yet again, it is mainly the residential property markets – notably in the large and university cities – that are experiencing a highly dynamic growth in prices. In the market for owner-occupied housing we find that the very strong demand in the big cities is increasingly spreading to the surrounding areas, leading to rising prices there, too,” Jens Tolckmitt, Chief Executive of the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp), noted.
