On what depends the market value of your property in Berlin?

- The building type (Altbau, Neubau, Plattenbau…) and the building condition (last renovations, facade, staircase...). For investment properties, the market value impact might be quite significant with rent cap regulation for period buildings.
- The floor: the apartments on the highest floors are generally more expensive.
- The interior of an apartment (space optimization, floor plan, general condition, furniture and decoration) could have an impact on the market value of up to 20%.
- The features such as balcony, terrace, basement cellar, lift and parking space.
- The tenancy status and the rental income (for rented out flats) - especially with the new rental cap regulation - this could have a drastic impact of up to 50% on the real estate appraisal in Berlin (compared to a similar vacant apartment).

Why is 2021 a good window for selling?
With last market and regulation changes, 2021 might represent a good window for selling real estate in the capital of Germany. 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 which are subject since end 2020 to a constraining rent cap regulation. On the other side, the situation with COVID-19 also has also a substantial impact on the value of properties in Germany, due to lock-down effects (lack of professional mobility, economic, turmoil, job cuts, lack of demand for offices, home-office, closing of commercial properties....).
So the impact on your property appraisal in Berlin is depending on several factors. It depends firstly on when and what you bought. In this way, 2021 might represent a good window for you to sell your property in the German capital:
- 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 suitable market conditions: 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 despite COVID situation. 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 the low mortgage rates in Germany: mortgages in Germany and Europe are at their lowest historical levels. This substantially increased the buyers' purchase power. In fact the monthly settlement of a mortgage of €200.000 costs now as low as low as of 500€. With the drop of interest rates, a flat buyer has ca. 25% more budget for his home purchase compared to the mortgage market situation in Germany 2-3 years ago . The fact that buyers could afford more impacts positively the market value of properties and benefit to sellers in terms of sale prices. If the mortgage rates rise in Europe and Germany in the upcoming period, the purchase power buyers will automatically drop and this could negatively affect the value of properties. In this view, if all conditions are met to sell, 2021 is definitely a good window!
- Avoid the new rental regulation impact: the new rent regulation has become officialized and binding since February 2020. It constraints landlords to keep moderate rent and/or decrease the current rent for properties in apartments buildings that were built before October 2014. It will have the effect of freezing tenanted period properties' rent level limited for at least next five years. A limited rent means a lower investment return and rent freeze means no value upside. This will drive more tenanted properties on the market and will affect period apartment building valuation in Berlin. So if you own a tenanted apartment in a a period apartment building, it definitely worth it to think of selling. Our advice: if your apartment comes to be vacant it's worth to sell it and not to rent it out back!
