Germany’s Real Estate Market

A report on the macro-economic aspect of Germany’s real estate market has been published by Bundesarbeitsgemeinschaft Immobilienwirtschaft Deutschland (BID). It explores the specificities of real estate, the real estate industry and real estate markets together with implications for policymakers.
The real estate industry plays a key role in Germany’s economy, with real-estate business activities accounting for around 18% of gross added value. It is also notable for its stability and importance as an asset class. Real estate prices in Germany have increased markedly since 2010, particularly in major German cities. The fundamentals of the real estate market in Germany remain sound, but the coming years may see some market adjustments.
