Berlin property market knowledge
Our knowledge of the local housing market in Berlin, the supply and demand of apartments for every district of the city and the average price of apartments and commercial properties in the city is a main advantage for you. This allows us not only to establish an accurate valuation of the market price of your property but also to select the best profiles among the new home buyers pool. Currently, our real estate agent lists over 300 apartments and commercial properties for sale and rent in the city (from 1-2 room apartments to 4-5 room family apartments). The market value of your apartment in Berlin will first depend on the local area and the offer versus the demand for similar flats on the housing market. The market price will take into view the living space (sqm), the number of bedrooms and baths, the heating type, the floor and the presence of a balcony or a terrace. The apartment interior condition is also main factor for setting-up the right market price: an flat in need of complete renovation will be sold at a 20% price discount compared to a brand new or renovated flat on the market. The listing price will also depend on the building type and construction year (i.e new-built development or period building), the building condition and the monthly costs, the building amenities and the transportations and facilities in the area (i.e distance to next metro station). For selling an investment property in Berlin, the market price valuation will also take into view the rental income, and the expected rental yield or investment return. The long-term market value potential and the expected price development in the area are also important factors for setting an apartement listing price.
International market outreach
Our German client base is composed of local Berliner buyers and people relocating for professional and business reasons from other German cities like Hamburg, Stuttgart and Munich. Our private international clients are essentially expatriates who relocate to the city, in view of the strong economic development and the high living quality in the town. Our private clients generally search to buy a new home in a central area of the town and they are looking to buy different types of apartments and buildings (from the 1-2 bedroom apartment to the 4-5 bedroom family apartment). In addition to our self-use buyers, we have thousands of investors (often cash-payer) investors looking for central residential properties in the German capital (rather 1 to 2 room apartments). To date, we have advised customers from more than 50 different countries for the purchase and the sale of commercial and residential properties in Germany (2). The quality of our customer base and our market reputation will definetly be an advantage for your apartment sale both from price and process perspectives.
