why invest in real estate in Germany

As a founding member of the European Union and prominent participant of the G7, Germany is one of the world’s great superpowers primed with secure property investment opportunities. With the largest economy in Europe, it maintains its position as a safe haven for international capital in times of economic and political uncertainty worldwide.

Demand for property investment opportunities remains elevated as Germany was one of the few markets to experience a continuation of house price growth during the global pandemic. The residential market is forecast to outperform other major European residential markets until at least 2030, underpinned by strong population growth, a structurally undersupplied housing market and a robust economic landscape.

As a result of the effective management of COVID-19, the modern economic structure, and the enormous fiscal spending program, the German economy has proved to be very resilient. It has rebounded far faster than the majority of advanced economies in H2 2020, offering excellent property investment opportunities in times where there are few available.
