New study published by DZ HYP: Real Estate Market Under "Corona Scrutiny"


  • Majority of five asset classes analysed showing a robust performance
  • Rents and purchase prices of residential real estate continue to rise
  • Subdued outlook for the retail and hotel sectors

So far, the German real estate market has weathered the stress test imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has been raging for about six months, rather well. Although the retail and hotel sectors have been particularly hard hit by the lockdown, rents and purchase prices have largely maintained their high levels. Residential real estate provided the strongest performance, with demand remaining stable throughout the course of the year to date. Rents and purchase prices showed a slight increase. Transaction volumes of commercial investments declined during the second quarter; however, this decline was moderate against the background of low interest rates and the persistent yield pick-up over bonds. Accordingly, real estate investments have remained the asset class of choice for many investors. Within commercial real estate, logistics properties in particular have been benefiting from good prospects.

These are the key findings of “Real Estate Market Under ‘Corona Scrutiny’”, a current research study conducted by DZ HYP covering private and commercial housing markets as well as the office, retail, logistics and hotel segments.
