GERMAN RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY BREAKFAST - Berlin
Does German rental housing still offer value? Is Berlin the best regional market?
Domestic and foreign investor alike continue to pour capital into German housing, seeing asset as one of the most stable in Europe. Traditional underpricing, historic, low interest rates and a new buyer generation are raising home ownership - and thus privatisations.
This Breakfast in Berlin will discuss value, opportunity and risk.. and to make this even more useful PIE has added a HOUSING BUS TOUR:
HOUSING BUS TOUR
Allowing time for networking after the Breakfast panel, hosted by legal firm Olswang at Potsdamer Platz, the tour will be organised and moderated by international realtor JLL, and reserved for event delegates. It will start at 10.45 a.m. and finish at around 2 p.m. at the starting point, including several stops and a traditional Currywurst lunch break on Prenzlauer Berg.
“From trendy new-built in central Berlin’s Mitte district via sought-after Kiez neighbourhoods to revitalised housing estates, this bus tour takes you to Berlin’s multifaceted residential locations," said JLL’s Julius Stinauer. "You will learn about current trends on the Berlin housing market and see some of the largest new construction projects in the capital.”

The panel will be welcomed to Berlin by Cornelia Yzer, Berlin Senator for Economics, Technology and Research.
