Germany is the largest European economy and by far the largest residential buy-to-let investment market in Europe. A safe and stable haven for global capital, Germany offers investors a solid economic and political environment that is highly attractive to both domestic and international buyers. Over the past years, we have witnessed an increasing demand from national and international investors in German residential properties. They are being attracted by the secular trends of urbanization, a stable economic environment and well-established residential market serving owners and tenants.

Offering long-term financial security and capital gain, Germany continues to be one of the top choices of where to invest global capital. “Made in Germany” has been recognized for decades as a seal of quality. Still valid today, buyers expect a certain type of quality – not only in goods but also in investments.

Unbeatable Conditions

In 2010 real estate investors were paying 4.25% interest on 10-year, fixed-rate mortgages in Germany. Today, banks are offering rates of between 1.55% and 1.65%, depending on a buyer’s credit rating.


With mortgage rates historically low, this is the perfect opportunity to boost your retirement income with a sound investment in an apartment in Berlin. Whichever way you look at it, there has never been a better (or more affordable) time to buy an apartment in Berlin.
