On the 15th of March 2018, both Engel & Völkers Chelsea and Engel & Völkers Berlin Developments put together the Property Investments in Berlin event at the Michelin House, Fulham Road, Chelsea. Champagne and canapés had been arranged to welcome all the guest attending and allowed for excellent socialising and networking. Before the Managing Director of Engel & Völkers Berlin, Christian von Gottberg presented, this allowed guests to meet both team Chelsea and team Berlin. Once the attendees had arrived, the presentation began with Christian highlighting both Berlin's past and future, and why Berlin was the current place to invest. Explaining key points such as the growing numbers of business, population and start-ups in the city.

Following this, Christian then reflected upon the price difference between Berlin and other major international cities, the use of graphs really allowed everyone to gain a good indication of the comparison and understand why to invest in Berlin. Berlin was then shown on another graph alongside many of Germany’s other cities. It was then explained that the graph was an indication of the prices per square meter inside, and outside the city centres.
New properties in Berlin have been on the rise, within 10 Years the number of new properties has increased by 4.3% since 2006. Christian also explained the forecasts for new properties and the further increase to keep up with the expected demand. Since 2016 fewer building permits for new buildings were granted and the shortage has caused housing prices to rise in the city.
Following the presentation, it gave the guests the opportunity to ask questions to Christian and his team as well as clarify any points on the presentation before more champagne was introduced to the night. Events like this give perfect opportunity to understand the international market and any current market trends.
