transaction volume above long-term average
Despite the pandemic environment, the German residential investment markets are developing positively. Investor interest remains high. In the first six months of the year, just under €9.9 billion was invested in larger residential portfolios (30 units or more) throughout Germany. Although this is 16% lower than in the same period of the previous year, the decrease is of little significance due to the acquisition of Adler Real Estate by Ado Properties in the same period 2020. As no comparable mega-deal has been registered so far this year, the ten-year average is more appropriate as a benchmark. This was exceeded by almost 14%. How strong the recent result was shows the thorough analysis of the second quarter. At almost €3.5 billion, this was the best Q2 transaction volume in the last six years. A total of 17 sales in the triple-digit million range have been registered so far. An indication of the continued lively market activity is also the number of deals recorded, which is again in the range of 200 transactions. The only limiting factor at the moment is the insufficient supply. A multiple of the invested capital is waiting on the sidelines to be invested in German residential real estate as well.
