  5. 5. Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment GERMAN MARKET NEWS MORE CONFIDENCE IN REAL ESTATE THAN IN OTHER BUSINESS SECTORS July 10th, 2013 RESIDENTIAL PORTFOLIOS: 2013 SHOULD BE EVEN BETTER THAN 2012 October 2, 2013 CBRE reported a transaction volume of about €8.21bn for residential portfolios in Germany during the first three quarters. At a drop of 5%, this amounts to a slight decrease compared to last year. In contrast, Savills observed a 15% increase to almost €9bn, according to preliminary numbers. Savills counts only portfolios with several buildings; CBRE takes all deals involving 50 or more units into consideration. The full year is likely to end even better than already very good 2012: according to the CBRE report, a well-supplied investment pipeline is ensuring a year-end rally. The broker said it expects sales for the year to reach €11.5bn, after the €11.25bn of the previous year. Between January and September, CBRE counted 141 transactions in which more than 125,000 residential units with more than 7.5mn sqm of living space changed hands. Source: TD International THE INGREDIENTS OF GERMAN ECONOMIC SUCCESS July 26th, 2013 With a culture of thrift and, now, a fast-ageing society, Germany naturally saves more than it spends. (Barring a few years after unification, it has run an almost uninterrupted surplus since 1952.) But its currentaccount surplus, at 7% of GDP, is now more than three times higher than it was a decade ago, largely thanks to an artificially cheap currency and squeezed wages. It is unhealthy, both for Germans (who forgo higher living standards to pile up savings that are poorly invested abroad) and for others in the euro zone and beyond. 8 German economists recognise that this has to change. Hans-Werner Sinn of Munich’s IFO economic research institute says the country is “too cheap”. But how best to rebalance the economy: through less saving or more investment? As a share of GDP German investment has fallen sharply, from 22% in 2000 to 17% in 2012. Public investment has been squeezed, firms have been cautious about capital spending and in the absence of a property boom there has been little investment in construction. Property is now beginning to look up. Ultra-low interest rates are pushing up house prices and spurring building. After a decade of stagnation, German property prices rose by 5% (in nominal terms) in both 2011 and 2012. Cities like Berlin and Munich have seen much bigger jumps. Taxi drivers offer tips on the best place to buy a flat. But there is a long way to go. Relative to income, German property prices are still 20% undervalued. The real estate industry in Germany is optimistic and, against the trend in other industries, plans to increase investment and add employees. These are the findings of a Deloitte survey in which 92% of the responding real estate CFOs expressed a positive outlook for Germany’s economy, while in other industries that number was only 56%. The real estate CFOs (85%) said they are still expecting rising revenues, compared to 36% in the other branches. The top business strategy priority for the property industry is to increase operating cash flow. Following that is cutting costs and reducing debt. The largest risk factors are now seen to be rising energy costs and the instability of the financial system. Source: TD International LBS FORECAST: PRICES FOR RESIDENTIAL PROPERTIES TO RISE BY 3% IN 2013 May 7th, 2013 The price trend on the German residential market is upwards in almost all of the regions and segments. It is expected that the most dynamic sector will continue to be southern Germany. By the end of the year, the purchase prices for German residential properties are likely to rise by another 2-4%. All of these findings are presented in “Markt für Wohnimmobilien 2013,” an analysis compiled by LBS. In the past ten years, prices especially for new condominiums have increased almost everywhere. However, with the exclusion of Germany’s southern and southwestern cities, prices for preexisting houses and condominiums are barely higher than in the spring of 2003. The highest prices for both are in the southern areas. Prices for construction sites also show enormous differences: in medium to large cities in southern Germany, the going price of €380/sqm is three times higher than in the north (€120) and five times higher than in the east (€70).

  6. 6. Providing best projects in Berlin for living or investment Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment BERLIN – CITY FACTS Berlin is a capital city of Federal Republic of Germany with a population of 3.5million. By international comparison, the German capital is the second largest city in the European Union in terms of its population and the fifth largest in terms of its area. Berlin is home to renowned universities, research institutes, orchestras, museums, and celebrities, and hosts many sporting events. After the fall of the wall, Berlin has evolved into a cultural mecca and has become a centre for art, design, multimedia, electronic music, and fashion among other things. With 175 museums, Berlin has more museums than rainy days. It also boasts more than 50 theatres and around 300 cinemas. Particularly appealing is also Berlins green spots with over a third of the city’s 10 extensive surface covered by sweeping parks, forests, lakes, rivers and canals. Public transport in Berlin is thorough and efficient with the railway and bus network the fastest way of getting around the capital. The city is well known for its festivals, diverse architecture, nightlife, shopping, contemporary arts and a high quality of living. You may find yourself wandering around one of the many central districts of Berlin, each of them being perfectly self-sufficient with plenty of small cafes, various restaurants and local designer boutiques allowing you to explore the diverse personality of this exciting city. www.homeinvestberlin.com 11
  7. 7. Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment BERLIN’S EXPANDING BUSINESS SCENE Majority of Berlin’s economy is made up from small and medium sized companies. The strongest sectors include electrical engineering, food products, chemical, mechanical engineering and motor vehicle manufacturing. Berlin’s economy is mainly based on the service sector, encompassing a wide range of creative industries, convention venues and media corporations. It is the city of choice for tech entrepreneurs, fashion designers, and artists with a strong and diverse culture scene. According to the recent reviews Berlin is also one of the top five congress cities in the world and in 2011 the tourism sector numbered over 22 million overnight stays by 9.8 million tourists. It also serves as a continental hub for air and rail transport in Europe and is the third most visited country in EU. Berlin is currently seeing a net increase of residents with many governmental and large corporations relocating staff there from other German cities; this influx is driving rental demand and rents upwards. Bringing Berlin more in line with the rest of Germany, this alignment in the market signifies a real buying opportunity with strong fundamentals supporting the rise in rental yields. The population of the city is rising at an increasingly robust rate, with more recent projections putting Berlin closer to 3.7 or 3.8 million residents by 2020. The flourishing startup and technology scene along with its traditional industries continuously expanding makes macroeconomic picture of city’s property market very solid.

  8. 8. Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY MARKET BERLIN’S INVESTMENT PROSPECTS Residential property is the key growth area in Germany right now and its capital Berlin has the biggest potential for growth. Most of the 1.8 million apartments in Berlin are rentals, averaging 84% with long rental terms of typically 10-15 years, but in recent years the choice of reasonably priced and exclusive living space in Berlins extremely varied districts has increased. Rents are generally lower than in any other major German city but are widely expected to increase significantly over the next 10 years. Berlin real estate is considered to be prime residential market in Europe, surpassing by far most other cities. The reasons are related to the low purchase prices in Berlin, in contrast to its first-class rental prices and its fast growing economy. One of the advantages of residential market that attracts investors is that tenants in Berlin pay for all the running costs of a building such as insurance, snow clearance, and other service charges. The only costs sustained by the owner are building maintenance and a property management fee. Historically, Berlin’s attraction for young people has been helped by cheap rents. But this is changing as interest in inner-city luxury apartments grows. This is especially true in districts such as Mitte, which has seen significant rent increases. Pension funds, listed firms, and private equity players, as well as wealthy Germans, are now among the city’s residential landlords. Even if the property prices would double in Berlin, they would still be affordable in comparison to other European cities. The possibilities for the next decade are seemingly endless.

  9. 9. Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment BERLIN’S INVESTMENT PROSPECTS BANK FINANCING IN GERMANY ALL PROPERTY RETURNS Excellent 6 Good 4 Real estate still provides a “hard yield in a low-yielding world”. As with debt, investors are still seeking safety first, returns second. Fresh debt is increasingly expensive. As banks seek to meet higher funding costs and their required return on equity, margins have ticked up. But low interest rates are helping to keep the all-in cost of borrowing at affordable levels. 2 Fair 0 Poor If we look in details in the graph displayed below, specifically about mortgage rates in Germany, it is remarkable to see how these interest rates slowly decreased during the last ten years. -2 Very Poor -4 Prospects Rating Ranking Good 3.72 2nd New Property Acquisitions Fair 3.46 3rd Development Prospects Fair 3.09 7th -6 Existing Property Performance 2006 2007 Total return 2008 2009 Capital growth 2010 2011 Income return Sources: Investment prospects: Emerging Trends in Real Estate Europe 2013 survey.

  16. 16. Providing best projects in Berlin for living or investment Providing the best projects in Berlin for living or investment TYPICAL BUYING PROCESS TRANSACTION COSTS MORTGAGES Transaction costs typically amount to 10-12% of the purchase price: Mortgages are available for German property depending on the applicant’s financial status as well as the property. Depending on property and applicant’s status, loans of up to 60-70% LTV are possible (in very rare cases up to 80%). German nationals can, in some cases, obtain a higher LTV. All applicants must provide last three years of tax returns, employment contract and pay slips, bank statements, proof of assets/liabilities, etc. While German banks tend to view self-employed applicants less favourably, mortgages are typically available provided all required documents are supplied. • Transfer tax (stamp duty) 3.5% – 5% (depending on state; since 1 April 2012 it’s 5% in Berlin) • gent fee 6% + VAT (agent fee A structure varies state by state, in Berlin the fee is payable by the buyer, in some states it is split between buyer and seller) • Notary and land registry 1.5 – 2% • Other associated cost – translations, mortgage (if required; approx. 1% arrangement fees) PURCHASE PROCESS Purchasing a Germany property is a straightforward process. After the purchase is agreed a contract is drawn up by the notary. A notary is impartial to the buyer and seller and is responsible for the tasks that, in the UK, are performed by a solicitor (title/land registry checks, preparing purchase contracts and ensuring fair contract conditions, etc). Both parties need to be present at the notary at contract signing or, alternatively, can be represented by another party with a power-ofattorney. Upon payment settlement the notary requests ownership changes at the land registry. 30 usually covers both house and rental management services.) GERMAN TAX German tax law is among the most complex in the world. It is therefore a must for any investor to consult a German tax advisor and/or accountant, in order to determine the most tax efficient structure. In general, foreigners with no other German income but rental income on property will usually be subject to the lower tax rates (though this will depend on the size of investments – income is subject to a progressive tax). mortgages are typically available provided all required documents are supplied. RUNNING COSTS This will depend on the provisions of the rental contract agreed with the tenant. For residential properties, all costs except property management, maintenance and repairs can generally be passed onto the tenant. Costs for property management are typically 25-35 euro per unit per month. Rental management is a separate service from property (house) management and can be provided by the same or another company (as house management). The fee for rental management is generally 25-30 euro per apartment per month. (In case of entire blocks only one management fee applies and www.homeinvestberlin.com 31
