At a Glance Q4 2019

Residential investment market Germany

Wohn-Investmentmarkt Deutschland


Demand for investments in larger residential portfolios (30 or more residential units) remains very high despite the many
political discussions concerning the introduction of regulatory instruments: the total transaction volume in 2019 amounts to around €19.5 billion, the second-best result in the past 15 years. More was only invested in 2015, when the purchase of Gagfah by Vonovia and the acquisition of Süddeutsche Wohnen alone
generated a volume of almost €10 billion. In 2019, too, a few
major deals such as the sale of BGP Group with around 16,000 apartments to Union Investment are to be reported. But generally speaking, the 17% higher number of transactions testifies to a consistently lively demand across all size categories. A total of around 370 sales with roughly 144,000 residential units were included in the results. At €53 million, the average volume per transaction is roughly on a par with the previous year.
