Investment in German metropolitan regions

Whether in the north, south, west or east, a lot of Germans are drawn in spite of the cheaper houses in the rural regions in the big cities and in the metropolitan areas. There are more jobs and universities, a good infrastructure and a wide range of leisure activities - but as a result there is also less and less living space. The demand for real estate in metropolises such as Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart and Frankfurt is increasing - and with it, logically, the price.

The desire to have your own four walls in a big city can still be fulfilled, because buying a property is usually still profitable - presumably even here - anyway. Because real estate is so popular in metropolitan areas, investing in your own home is often a safe and sound decision - and a sensible investment in the future. Because in the long term, based on current forecasts, a significant increase in value can be expected. Low interest rates and attractive conditions for mortgage lending also make it possible to buy real estate in the big city.

The advantages of buying real estate in a metropolis

  • High standard of living
  • Good infrastructure
  • Attractive capital investment
  • Expected increase in the value of the property
  • Construction financing at low interest rates and top conditions
