Free licence area: region of Burgdorf

Licence area Burgdorf– Facts & Figures

Burgdorf is the centre of the licence area so to speak. Engel & Völkers hopes to have a presence in this prime location in future, with an estate agent here. With around 30,000 single family homes and freehold flats, the area has potential turnover of a good CHF 1.8 mil. in property sales alone. Due to the high rental percentage of almost 50%, there is also a great deal of potential to further increase turnover in the rental sector.

Engel & Völkers is already well represented in the surrounding regions, with locations in Bern and Solothurn. A further location in Burgdorf would have a positive influence on the cross-selling and supply system of Engel & Völkers in the Bern conurbation, and even nationally, which would in turn have a positive effect on their own turnover figures.

Are you interested in the property market in and around Burgdorf, and would you like to lead the Engel & Völkers licence in Burgdorf to success? Find out more about our free license area in the article below and get in contact with us. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Burgdorf – the town in Emmental

Embedded in rural Bernese Emmental is Burgdorf. However, the name is misleading, because Burgdorf [Dorf = village] is not a village, but a small town with over 16,000 inhabitants, and the Burg [town/castle] does not live up to the actual Castle Burgdorf, as the landmark of the town, by a long shot.

Potential for development even in the property market

The property market in Emmental is currently characterised by a surplus. Here, the buyer interest is primarily concentrated on inexpensive single-family homes in locations such as Burgdorf and Langnau in Emmental, which have good public transport links and a contemporary infrastructure. In order for Burgdorf to remain an attractive residential and economic area in future, numerous investors who see potential in the town have started the latest development project Burgdorf 25. This name covers numerous important projects and developments, which will characterise the townscape and attractiveness of Burgdorf as a residential and economic location and destination for day trippers in the long-term.
