Residential properties: our services at a glance

Be it institutional or private and as an investor or owner, we are happy to help you master every stage and implement every vision in your residential real estate experience

Nowadays, more and more people are moving to the city, despite a frequent lack of (affordable) living space, which is already proving problematic. To meet this demand and create space for new homes in locations that are actually already full, the residential real estate market needs to be creative. This need is giving rise to new, successful concepts such as micro-apartments, tiny houses and co-living, to name but a few. The development of urban quarters is also becoming increasingly important. With all of these new options, navigating your way through the complex asset class of residential property requires a great deal of market knowledge and expertise. Our property specialists are happy to pave the way for you with their support, advice and the following services for residential real estate:

Institutional investors

The general conditions in the capital markets, and therefore also in the German housing markets, are currently experiencing a noticeable change. A complex network of interdependent factors with various outcomes can influence your property investments to a significant extent. But there’s no need to worry! Our experts can help you master your property investments, portfolio optimisations, and sales transactions while factoring in all aspects that play a decisive role. And you can rest assured that you have a reliable partner at your service throughout the process.

Private investors

The decision to sell your property is by no means a sprint but instead a marathon with many tasks awaiting you on the way to the finish line. This is where we come into play as the ultimate running partner, working with you to tackle these tasks and get you a podium finish with the best possible result. What’s more, our expertise and our desire to always break new ground have inspired and enabled us to expand our service spectrum to also cover residential real estate. Our experience and strength have secured us a market position as a seasoned yet agile competitor able to respond to changes in the market extremely rapidly. We put this ability to good use to achieve a successful conclusion to the sale or purchase of your property.

Market reports and key figures

The housing market in Germany is dynamic, as you may well have noticed in your local region. But what does the situation really look like in the rest of the country? BNP Paribas Real Estate set itself the task of investigating this very question and analysed all 110 independent cities in Germany. The result: the BNP Paribas Real Estate Residential Navigator, a helpful tool updated every six months to provide you with an overview of the most important key figures in the investment, rental and purchase markets. Our Residential Navigator enables you to flexibly explore the multitude of housing markets in Germany and to keep a close eye on rental and purchase price developments (for condominiums) in new and existing buildings, as well as other performance figures.

"In the first three months of 2023, investment volumes amounted to only around €1.15 billion, marking the weakest first quarter since 2011. The residential investment markets have carried the weak momentum from 2022 into the new year. The changed economic conditions, the turnaround in interest rates with the resulting sharp rise in financing costs and the surge in inflation have left their mark on the financial markets and also pushed the otherwise resilient German residential investment market into a new pricing phase. Furthermore, there are often significant price differences between purchase and sale requests. Large-volume transactions could therefore hardly be realized. However, past experience shows that such market phases typically do not last and are broken up by new players entering the market in order to realize opportunities in the favor of the hour. In perspective, this will allow a more constructive exchange between buyers and sellers to take place again with a price level that is acceptable to all sides."
