Real estate market and investment potential Oldenburg

General Real Estate Information -en to Oldenburg

The acquisition of real estate is now one of the most lucrative investment opportunities. Whether private or commercial, buying property is worthwhile. However, only if the selected object has an equally worthwhile location. Thus, it is factors such as the infrastructure of a village, the economic situation of the surrounding area and other key figures that make an optimal location for a property. If you are currently looking for a suitable condominium, residential complex or detached house in Oldenburg, we have summarized the most important information for you below.
Oldenburg is absolutely ideal for choosing an investment property. After all, Oldenburg in Lower Saxony, together with about 160,000 inhabitants, belongs to the third largest city in Germany. At the same time, Oldenburg is an important centre for business and culture. Bremen, just 45 kilometres away, is equally advantageous. Oldenburg is one of the most important university cities and is characterized by numerous companies. The city is always growing, because future technologies and innovative ideas are promoted here as well as investment in renewable energy and information technology. The beautiful harbour is another centre of Oldenburg and is an important factor in trade. The city is particularly popular for commercial real estate and promises a successful future.

Residents key figures Oldenburg

In Oldenburg, it can live and operate excellently on 102.99 square kilometres. According to statistics from 2016, there are an average of 1,609 people per square kilometre, about 1.15 more than the following year. Since 1946, the city of Oldenburg in the state of Lower Saxony has belonged to the category of large city. So it doesn’t always have to be the big metropolises to make a lucrative profit from his real estate. It is always helpful to look at the economy and growth, as well as urban development in view of the past years. Thus, it is possible to make forecasts that will give an idea of the real estate market in 10 years of the chosen city. Oldenburg is definitely one of them when it comes to growth, not only in terms of the city’s growing population.

Infrastructure Oldenburg

The A 28 describes the short form of the Bundesautobahn BAB 28 and runs in a west-eastern direction through Lower Saxony. Also interesting is the motorway triangle Oldenburg-West, which seamlessly merges into the A 293 in the eastern part. The A 29 Wilhelmshaven triangle Ahlhorner Heide is also connected to the Bundesautobahn. From here, either take the Oldenburg-Ost motorway junction or take the A 293 motorway in the direction of Wilhelmshaven. The B 401 also belongs to a federal road in Germany and runs from Heede directly to Oldenburg. The Bundesautobahn 29 near Oldenburg is connected to Brake by the B 211. Via the A 293, you go directly to Oldenburg from here.
Of course, the beautiful port city of Oldenburg can also be reached by IC or ICE. And that’s pretty cheap in many other cities. For example, the nearest airport in Hanover can be reached in just 1.5 hours by train. The port itself is an important place for trade and between the numerous smaller towns you will find an expanded bus network.

Economy & Unemployment Rate Oldenburg

The economy in Oldenburg is constantly growing, so that small and medium-sized enterprises also have a future there. No wonder, then, that every year there are many inhabitants close to the beautiful inner cities. The towns are equipped with many small and large service providers and the automotive industry can also be seen in Oldenburg. Shopping opportunities are available in almost every place and the Oldenburgers are also at the top of the fast lane when it comes to energy and information technology. Last year, the unemployment rate was only 6.7, which is, of course, due to the economic recovery. Unemployment is currently falling further, making the city of Oldenburg one of the cities with the lowest numbers of unemployed.

Purchase prices are also rising in these regions, as are rents. In addition to Münster, Heilbronn, Paderborn, Leverkusen and other cities, Oldenburg is one of the best risk-return profiles.

Investment in real estate: Forecast for Oldenburg

In Oldenburg it is not only possible to live peacefully, but also to buy lucrative property. And even with a much higher return than would be the case in the big metropolises such as Munich or Berlin. The expected growth spurt in the labour market, economy and innovation in the future makes the purchase of real estate in these regions even more interesting.
