Real estate prices Berlin 2020


The German capital is Germany’s number one in many ways. The area of almost 900 km2 has a population of just over 3.6 million; this results in a population density of more than 4,000 inhabitants per km2. Both the private and commercial real estate market in Berlin is hotly contested with the existing land, as they say. The lack of land forces building and investing in the heights. As a result, demand for residential property in the apartment building at the beginning of the 2020s was at an all-time high. Existing building gaps in the twelve Berlin boroughs with their more than eight dozen districts are preferably closed with commercial se-re-established properties such as office properties.

In short, the Berlin investment market is booming.

Buy Berlin property - only with investment and real estate agents of trust

The real estate supply in Berlin still lags well short of demand. This has a direct impact on property prices. Investors and buyers are well advised to look for an experienced real estate agent familiar with the Berlin real estate market. In individual cases, he decides whether to mediate the private or commercial property himself, or whether a joint transaction with property brokers and client brokers is more promising. Popular investments are hotel properties, business parks and of course still residential properties from the apartment to the 150 m2 multi-room apartment.

Facts and figures about the real estate market Berlin

The Berlin housing market is swept away! This is not a saying, but a fact at the beginning of the new decade. The vacancy rate for housing is less than one percent; By the mid-2010s, it was five percent more. In the case of office properties, the vacancy rate is about 1.5 percent, with the trend also falling.

• Building land costs from 500 euro/m2 upwards, and residential property in an exposed location between 3,000 and 5,000 euros/m2
• The cold rent for a multi-room apartment in a middle-class building in a good location is from just under nine euros/m2 upwards

With the expected population growth of more than 200,000 citizens and residents by 2030, the Berlin real estate market will hardly be able to keep up. The result is high property prices, expensive rents and achievable return in the mid to higher single-digit percentage range.

1A-Residential Locations Berlin Grunewald, Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain

Of course, the district of Berlin-Mitte with districts such as Mitte, Tiergarten and Gesundbrunnen is one of the most sought-after residential areas; closely followed by the district Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and the district Prenzlauer Berg in the district of Pankow. Several districts in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district, including Grunewald and Halensee at the western end of the Kurfürstendamm, are considered to be 1B residential locations for investment properties.

The Berlin Senate has divided all residential areas into the three categories of simple, medium and good. Berlin’s top residential location includes the optimal inner-city infrastructure from public transport to the road network to education and medical care, as well as a wide range of cultural, sports and leisure activities.

Real estate acquisition Berlin with high incidental costs

As high as the Berlin real estate price per m2 is, so are the additional costs for the purchase of real estate. On the threshold of the new decade, they amount to just over 15 percent of the certified purchase price. Standard ancillary costs are the real estate transfer tax, notary, certificate and land registry costs as well as the courtage for the Berlin real estate agent. The real estate transfer tax is at the top of the national level at 6 percent, and the same applies to the freely negotiable brokerage commission of an average of more than seven percent.

Real estate forecast Berlin 2030 - more than just the Federal Capital

For institutional investors, the Berlin investment in both residential and commercial real estate is still a worthwhile investment. Net returns between three and five percent are absolutely realistic. The commercial real estate market from office and hotel real estate to the car park or to the retail centre is the focus of large-scale transactions. The residential real estate market, including the care and senior real estate, is more of an interest to private investors.

There is no fear of a drop in rental yields, whether with or without the Berlin rent cap. The same applies to the real estate purchase price for condominiums. In both 1A and 1B residential areas, the level of real estate prices and property values is rising significantly in some cases.

By 2030, Berlin will not only be and remain the capital of Germany, but also Europe’s most populous city.
