empirica real estate price index Q2 2020

The current empirica real estate price index shows: Rents and purchase prices in Germany continue to rise. The rates of increase in purchase prices are still significantly higher than the growth in rents. However Berlin is falling off the grid, because average rents for new buildings are currently stagnating and the average for re-renting existing properties is falling slightly.

ZEIT ONLINE: The temporary end of the evermore

empirica regio has prepared a special evaluation of quoted rents from early 2019 to mid May 2020 for an article on the Berlin rent cap by ZEIT ONLINE. You can find the article here (in German). The evaluation shows that since the rent cap came into force at the end of February 2020, rents have fallen by up to 9.5% compared with January 2019, while at the same time the number of weekly advertisements has fallen by up to 40%. There is no connection with the corona crisis, as comparable declines cannot be observed in other metropolitan areas in Germany.

In empirica regio GO you will also find a special evaluation of the development of supply on the housing market in Germany during the coronavirus recession. For this purpose we have looked at the advertised housing market of the empirica-systeme market database of the last twelve months. In March, although there was a decline in offers, no significant change in rental and purchase prices could be observed. We will update the data analysis again in May and supplement it with more up-to-date data.

empirica real estate price index Q1 2020

What slowly became apparent in the last months is continuing: the rise in rents is continuing to slow down, especially in the metropolitan areas. The effects of the rent cap in Berlin are also reflected in the market data. In terms of purchase prices, however, the price increases are still continuing in the first quarter. As a result, purchase prices and rents continue to diverge.

The effects of corona can currently only be reflected in property prices to a very limited extent, and the period since the outbreak of the crisis in Germany is too short for a detailed analysis. Two papers about the current data and the (possible) consequences of the corona crisis on the real estate market can be found on the website of empirica ag and at empirica-systeme (both in German).

The empirica real estate price index for quarters at the level of districts and district-free cities as well as aggregated regions (e.g. A and B cities, district types according to population development, rural or urban areas, regional planning regions) can be obtained from the empirica regio market studio. Further information on our services can be found in our current service profile.

empirica real estate price index Q4 2019

The empirica real estate price index for the fourth quarter of 2019 is now available. The rise in purchase prices continues. In the rental price segment, however, rents in many core cities are rising less strongly than before. Some cities also show stagnating or even slightly declining rents, e.g. Munich, Erlangen, Freiburg im Breisgau or Regensburg (in each case based on all years of construction).

CBRE empirica vacancy index 2019

In Germany, around 600,000 market-active multi-storey apartments were vacant in 2018. However, the regional gap in vacancy rates continues to widen: reserves in growing regions and in swarm cities continue to decline, contrasting with an increase in vacancies in shrinking regions.

The figures are based on management data from CBRE (approx. 755,000 residential units) and extensive analyses and estimates based on the empirica regional database and the Federal Statistical Office. Further information on the vacancy index can be found on the website of empirica. Also the Süddeutsche Zeitung has dealt with the data and the topic of vacancies this week.

empirica real estate price index Q3 2019

The rents and purchase prices for the third quarter of 2019 from the empirica real estate price index are available. While purchase prices continue to rise sharply - across Germany, the purchase prices for condominiums are rising five times faster than rents - the curves for rents in the core cities repeatedly point downwards or stagnate at a high level. Is this a sign of the end of the cycle?
