German Real Estate Markets 2021: Still on top or fighting to keep afloat?

While Germany seems to have tackled the pandemic outbreak and its consequences on the economy and subsequent real estate markets better than most countries, key challenges brought on by COVID and pre-pandemic returners might give German real estate investors, lenders and developers a headache in 2021. While prices are still rising and interest rates continue at an all time low, one might suspect that nothing much has changed since 2019, however, with a slower than expected recovery timeline and unemployment increasing, 2021 might be the time to face the music.

Will pricing adapt to a new post-COVID reality and what would that mean for core, opportunistic and development pipelines?

Now in its 15th year, participants find the discovery process for sourcing deal flow is most advantageous by welcoming the largest concentration of  Private Equity Investors, Fund Managers,  LP’s Developers, Asset Owners, Operators and Lenders invested across all German regions and asset classes. They will engage in a series of informal roundtables where everyone can participate, and navigate the current challenges presented by demand, purchasing and future trends.
