Prices for German residential and commercial property in 2014

 Residential property prices rose by 5% and commercial property prices by 3.8% in 2014

Prices on the German property market continued to rise in the fourth quarter of 2014. Calculated on the basis of real transaction data, the vdp Property Price Index for the German market as a whole rose by an average of 4.7% in 2014. Residential property prices increased by 5% (2013 = +4%), while those for commercial property went up by 3.8% (2013 = +4.7%).

“Demand for residential and commercial property continues unabated. Thanks to a combination of low interest rates, high international capital mobility and a relatively stable German economy, German properties remain sought after by domestic and international investors. On the one hand, this trend reflects the attractiveness of the German market. On the other hand, investment pressure – especially in commercial property markets – poses risks which should not be underestimated. If demand does not ease, prices will continue to rise, possibly leading to a correction in some markets,” 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 (2003-2014), including charts and tables, are set out in the enclosed publication.
