Berlin: The New Gate For Chinese Real Estate Investors In Europe
BERLIN, DATE, 2013. In 2013, the interests of Chinese investors were strongly redirected to the European real estate market. What are the reasons for this rediscovered investment trend?
According to Rubina Real Estate’s experience, Chinese shareholders are motivated to purchase residential and commercial properties in Europe mostly for pure investment reasons. Some want to expand their businesses or relocate Chinese firms to Europe. Others see the high level of education and the European life style as key reasons to buy a property in Europe.
Real estate investors, who are seeking low purchase prices, accelerating rents and stable property appreciation, are looking into the Berlin property market. Besides offering highly competitive yields, Germany also features lower mortgage interest rates. Currently rates within Germany are averaging 3.5%.
Germany, and particularly Berlin, is experiencing stable price increases as they catch up with the competing European real estate market. In addition, rental rates are also on the rise fueled by increasing demand and low rates of new construction. The Berlin housing market, in particular, is experiencing the strongest growth in rents and purchase prices in more than 20 years.
During the last few years, Berlin has become the city of real estate investments in Germany. The high return potential for residential properties has especially raised the attention of foreign investors and businesses alike.
These factors clearly set Berlin as a more favorable investment location from a Chinese investor’s perspective.
