New or old building: Which type of property does appeal to you?

The decision for an old building or new building is one of the most fundamental questions that home buyers will face initially. It may be helpful to have a list that summarizes what points are non-negotiable, where there is scope, and what is of little interest to you. Our estate agents from Engel & Völkers Germany have listed some advantages of the two types of real estate to help you make the purchase decision for your villa, apartment or flat. As a rule, new buildings have a high level of energy efficiency which, over time, reduces the additional costs, contains state-of-the-art equipment and a good building fabric. They also often have good thermal insulation and ventilation. Not to be underestimated are also the low repair costs for the next decades. In contrast, villas, apartments and flats in the old building style come with other advantages, as our real estate agents of Engel & Völkers know. For example, old buildings are usually centrally located in established residential areas, while new buildings are predominantly located somewhat on the outskirts. In addition, old buildings are characterized by light-flooded rooms due to generous room and window heights and attractive exterior facades with ornamental or stucco decorations. The massive walls also provide effective heat protection. As you can see, both new and old buildings offer different positive aspects. If you would like more detailed information, please do not hesitate to contact our estate agents from Engel & Völkers Germany.

Checklist for buying real estate: What you should consider in advance
