Real estate market and investment potential Reutlingen

General Real Estate Information about Reutlingen

Reutlingen is the gateway to the Swabian Alb and the largest economic centre between Stuttgart and Lake Constance. The city belongs to the European metropolitan region Stuttgart and the neckar-alb region and offers a charming landscape and a lot of quality of life and leisure value.
The city is one of the old-industrialized cities of the state of Baden-Württemberg and has undergone many changes in the last century. Craft enterprises became industrial enterprises, with the textile industry as the most important pillar for many decades (flowering period at the end of the 1950s). Over time, other modern industries have emerged and the city is still undergoing a dynamic transformation.
In the 2016 Future Atlas, Reutlingen ranks 80th out of 402 counties, district-free cities and municipal associations, making it one of the regions in Germany with high future prospects. For investors interested in an investment property in Reutlingen, there are also numerous other indicators that support the location.

Reutlingen first became a big city with more than 100,000 inhabitants in 1988 and has grown steadily, especially in recent years. In December 2017, there were 115,762 people living in Reutlingen. Around 15 percent of the population of Reutlingen has a migrant background – for them there is an integration council in the city that represents their interests.

Infrastructure Reutlingen

There is no motorway through Reutlingen, which limits the optimal accessibility a little. The only other big city in Germany without a direct motorway connection is Solingen. The A8 and A81 motorways are about half an hour from the city and can be reached via federal roads. The main federal roads are the B28, the B312, the B27 and the B464.
Reutlingen is connected to other parts of Germany via the rail network via Regio and IC. Buses run within the city. The nearest airport is Stuttgart International Airport.

Economy & Unemployment Rate Reutlingen

After the role of the textile industry in Reutlingen has diminished, the city is now a service location with significant industrial production. Mechanical engineering and the electrical engineering industry in particular are relevant production areas. The automotive industry is also based in Reutlingen, so the “Automotive Electronics” division of Robert Bosch GmbH is based in Reutlingen.
The unemployment rate in Reutlingen was 3.4 percent in August 2018, almost the Baden-Württemberg average of 3.1 percent.
