Buying property - But where? Focus on some of Germany's most sought-after locations

The purchase of a house, apartment or condo entails far-reaching considerations and is by no means limited to the property alone. The way to work, to kindergartens and schools as well as the infrastructure is just as crucial as a real estate location choice as a natural location or the reputation of the neighborhood, or the district. According to our estate agents at Engel & Völkers Germany, many people still prefer the city, especially the seven largest cities in Germany Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Cologne, which, as in the previous year, is determined on the German real estate market. If you want to benefit from the advantages of the big cities, but prefer to live in an idyllic and rural atmosphere, our real estate agents recommend to buy a house, apartment or condo in the outskirts of the city or their catchment areas. In Munich, for example, the quarters Pullach, Grünwald and - a little further away - the region of Starnberg is known as a particularly natural residential area. In the vicinity of the center of Dusseldorf, on the other hand, Meerbusch and Neuss enjoy great popularity when buying a property.

Buy a property now or rather wait? The new market report from Engel & Völkers provides information

Property seekers usually want to wait for the best time to buy a house, apartment or condo in order to buy the desired property at the best possible price. In our Engel & Völkers Residential Property Market Report 2018/2019, our real estate agents have collected up-to-date data on developments and trends in the German residential real estate market for you. Accordingly, we find that the high demand for real estate for sale and the current shortage of supply have led to a rise in prices in recent years. In the 60 housing markets analyzed by Engel & Völkers in Germany, house prices rose by an average of 7.4 per cent, compared to the previous year, with apartments rising by 5.4 per cent. Despite these price dynamics, our team at Engel & Völkers Germany continues to rate the purchase of a property as positive. This balance is made up of the strong economic situation, pronounced wage increases and low mortgage rates. In addition, we assume that the trend of rising property prices will continue in the next few years, so that you make a stable investment with the purchase of a house, condo or apartment.
