An independent market survey by Famos Immobilien GmbH grants insights into and provides information about the investment behaviour of the German “family offices” on the property market.
In this country, property is the focal point of many private investors - it is regarded as a comparatively safe investment and attracts capital accordingly. This leads to increasing demand pressure and consequently to increases in property prices. The high level of demand for safe investments in attractive locations shows no signs of abating, however.
This is also confirmed by the findings of the Famos survey from 2012. The survey was focused on a group that plays a significant part in the property market but whose discreet mode of operation ensures that very little is known about them: “family offices”.
An updated survey is scheduled for the beginning of 2016.
