- Seizing real estate investment opportunities: invest successfully with the experts from Engel & Völkers and increase the value of your property

Aspects to consider when choosing a property

A property does not generate income just because it exists. Site and location, the type of use, size, features and building material have high strategic value. These are questions that a classic private investor can hardly clarify in their entirety. It therefore makes sense to get experts on board some time before the decision is made, who know the market and the opportunities in detail, regardless of whether you are dealing with the purchase or sale of real estate.

The advantages of investing in real estate

Wanting to invest in something that retains its value is understandable, above all because there are usually values behind it such as retirement provision, security and asset accumulation.

Currently, buying real estate is favoured by the low interest rates on mortgage loans as well as by the achievable increase in value in the real estate market, especially in the booming metropolitan regions and large cities.

This is what the experts at Engel & Völkers advise to ensure that your investment is crowned with success

1. We recommend that, depending on the property and the status of the buyer, you have the necessary and sensible use of your own capital checked for your personal situation.

2. An investment in the housing market is still an attractive form of investment with potential for value enhancement, which has proven itself even in crises. Legal regulations on rent caps, such as those introduced in Berlin, must be observed here. Find out about the legal regulations and political plans in the cities you are considering for your investment. Our real estate agents will be happy to help you with advice and assistance to clarify any questions you may have. 

3. The boom in the metropolitan regions is currently leading to outstanding increases in value, and property prices are at a permanent high. All forecasts indicate that market stability will continue in the medium term, partly because there is a fundamental lack of investment alternatives. Site and location are the determining factors for yield security.

Bottom line: seize opportunities, minimise risks

Real estate as an investment continues to retain its value. The parameters of location quality, substance of the property, current quality of the tenancies and future development are decisive for the yield. Depending on the desired investment horizon (long or short term), our experts will advise you and develop the optimal investment strategy for you. Both the residential and the commercial real estate market show stable developments, so now is the time to position your investments. The best thing is to get in touch with us today.
