The passbook is statistically the most common investment of the Germans. After all, 78 percent have a savings. Only far follow capital life insurance and savings. Real estate as an investment play only a minor role, although they make up the largest assets of German households as own-use real estate. “You look at this, in which asset classes, professional” investors, so asset managers, family offices and institutional investors create, so the real estate as an investment plays an increasingly important role.
Also Rolf Tilmes, CEO of the financial planning standards Board Germany considers the role of investment real estate in the wide audience of investors wrong. “Literally, he talks in an interview with the investment”: while real estate investments, can provide professionally selected and active managed, protection against crises and a rise in the inflation rate. ” And again he saith: in addition, that many Investors the return opportunities that are possible with investments in this sector, do not use.”with closed-end real estate funds, investing in residential real estate, investors can precisely these benefits. Especially if they are active such as the Grundinvest euro in the development of apartments at the prime of Munich”, says Jens Behre of the Munich-based service company of CSM conqueror sales & marketing. The company serves independent financial service providers and provides a selected portfolio of investments in tangible assets in the area of investments. Munich scores while with decisive advantages: a large demand for new homes against the backdrop of a unique in Germany vacancy rate of only 0.6 percent in a concurrent requirement for 31,000 new homes, as the German tenants Association points out.
The price developments over the last 24 months make it clear that a backlog was completed and now to assume is that the current high price levels remain sustainable. Anyway, experts don’t see a starting point for a price bubble”. Residential real estate itself doing compared to commercial properties different advantages characterized by: kleinteiliger to sell from the perspective of the developer and faster find a new owner. The required capital is therefore shorter, which increases the chances of return. The market is also not as restricted as in the commercial sector. Residential real estate are also less susceptible to economic cycles and trends. It is always used but the Internet and its possibilities, regardless of time and place having can buy, for example, the situation with store owners clearly changed, what affects also the general demand for industrial real estate. CSM-chef Jens Behre sends another advantage in the race: while is usually commercially strong funds to major projects, the charm of residential real estate fund is that it mostly involves portfolio fund – the wider dispersion offers more Flexibility and thus safer. Who participates then still – as in the holdings of the euro Grundinvest – on the development of new housing, can expect also attractive yields, without having to tie up his capital long. Experiences from other countries show that very well can occur in an environment of low interest rates and high liquidity excesses in the real estate markets. The German real estate market is therefore more accurate observation currently we see but still no action. A housing bubble no speech can be in Germany at the moment”, said Dr. Andreas Dombret as the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank earlier this year in an interview with the Leipziger Volkszeitung newspaper (link: url9.de/EhQ).
