Is the timing good for real estate valuation & sale in Berlin ?
This is the question that most of landlords and owners ask themselves when it comes to look whether it is good window for selling real estate in the capital of Germany. 2022 is quite an instable year during which the mortgage rates hit historical lows and highs in just few months. The increase of mortgages might impact downwards property values in Berlin. So End 2022 represents a good window to sell in order to stay on the safe side & avoid a market downturn. This is especially true if you bought an apartment some years ago and that already took substantial value in the market. In fact, apartment prices in Germany's capital has been increasing last 4 to 5 years at ca. +10% per year. Therefore your home value have probably increased a lot. This is especially the case of vacant properties (self-use) that are much in demand due to the housing shortage. However, this is less the case for tenanted properties with regulated rents.
Selling decision is specific to every personal situation and depends on which property one bought and when.
2022 might represent a good window to sell for the following reasons:
- Lock in profit: With the strong development of real estate prices in Berlin during last years (ca. +10% increase per year), the valuation of your property in Berlin has probably been sharply increasing. So you will definitely benefit from an important income and profit due to the increase of market value. On top of that income, you might benefit from tax advantages in Germany. In fact, if you already bought a flat since more than 10 years, you call sell it without profit tax in Germany. Alternatively if the apartment is your own home, you can also sell it without tax on capital gain.
- Take advantage from strong market demand: housing demand in the capital of Germany is still quite high due to the tremendous population and economic growth. The local and international demand for commercial and residential properties in the capital of Germany is still strong. Indeed, Germany is seen as a global safe investment haven. So sellers still benefit from attractive value pricing and strong local and international demand. They can also sell within short periods, especially when the property is listed with international agents like First Citiz. To get a more precise idea about the development of your property valuation in Berlin, please, do not hesitate to get in touch with our team.
- Take advantage from "still acceptable" mortgage rates in Germany: mortgages in Germany and Europe are hit their highest levels in mid-2022. This might represent a threat on market property values in Germany, especially if the mortgage rates continue to rise. In fact the monthly settlement of a mortgage of €200.000 was 500€ per month in early 2022 and has risen now to almost 800€ per month. If the mortgage rates continue soaring in Europe and Germany, the purchase power of buyers will automatically drop and this could negatively affect the value of properties.
- Avoid rental regulation impact: rent regulation in Berlin aims to keep rents at moderated levels, when it comes to properties in apartment buildings built before October 2014. A limited rent means a lower investment return and means no market value upside. This explains the important value difference between vacant and tenanted properties. If you own an apartment in a period apartment building, it definitely worth it to sell it as soon as it comes to be vacant.
