empirica real estate price index Q2 2019

New rents and purchase prices for the second quarter of 2019 from the empirica price database are now available for download. The current data show a slower increase in rents in prime locations with continued high price increases in the owner-occupied segment. As a result, yields in A and B cities continue to decline significantly.

The pseudo-returns for new construction are shown here as an example. This indicator is calculated as the ratio of quality-adjusted rental prices to quality-adjusted purchase prices for multi-storey apartments in the empirica property price index.

Change of name and expansion of the management

The empirica regional database has been marketed by us since 2018 under the name empirica regio. The name empirica regio has also been used in the company title of empirica regio GmbH since July 2019.

Under this brand we carry a broad set of indicators of regional data together with the aim of enabling thematic data analysis and reporting at the push of a button. The development of purchase prices, rents or yield figures, labour market statistics, vacancy rates or forecasts are thus made available to our customers quickly and easily. And it makes no difference whether data is required for the Top7, growth and shrinking regions, urban and rural areas or specific districts and cities, because all data bases are automatically applied to different types of space.

From July 2019 Jan Grade and Dr. Lorenz Thomschke will strengthen the management of empirica regio. Together with Dr. Reiner Braun we can draw on extensive know-how in the areas of research, analysis and consulting.

Would you like to learn more and try our database? Then contact us. We look forward to getting to know you.


empirica bubble index Q1 2019

The new empirica bubble index shows an initial increase in the ratio of prices to income and a further increase in multipliers and debt. New construction, on the other hand, remains constant. As a result, the risk of bubbles continues to rise, especially outside the growth regions.
