Since our last survey in summer 2021, the residential real estate market environment has undergone a major change: cost increases, interest rate rises and higher regulatory requirements have slowed the upward trend that had lasted for years. Investor sentiment reflects this, yet their view of the market is not just pessimistic – they recognise the changed conditions and are dealing with them.
But how exactly do they assess the current state of the transaction market? Which locations and asset classes are in demand? What factors are shaping the market and what are the resulting forecasts? We asked 140 domestic and international investors about the current challenges, strategies and trends.
Focus of the survey:
- Which locations are in demand?
- How interesting are KfW subsidised funding possibilities?
- What role do ESG factors play in residential investing?
- What developments do investors expect in the near future?
