When it comes to evaluating a real estate investment, many parameters and statistics need to be considered. Which regions lend themselves to my goals? How do long-term and short-term developments in certain areas relate to each other? These and other questions are answered by the ACCENTRO Homeownership Report 2022.

The ACCENTRO Homeownership Report is a clearly structured and transparent survey of the residential market action in Germany’s major cities. Applying a wide variety of criteria, such as transaction volumes, revenues or the number of ownership apartments sold, the report organises the cities into rankings, so that Germany’s top locations are transparently presented at a glance.
In its drilldown depth and data quantity, the ACCENTRO Homeownership Report is the only one of its kind in Germany. In addition to the analysis of homeownership markets of the 80 largest cities in Germany, the report always also discusses a special subject based on an ad-hoc extraction.
The detailed preparation and presentation of the market data of each city in the ACCENTRO Homeownership Report are the result of a collaboration between ACCENTRO and the German Economic Institute (IW). Revenues, apartments prices and data on the cities’ rent indices are available to the reader – in detail and in easy-to-follow wording.
The end of the low-interest cycle has made it harder for many people to finance the acquisition of residential property. Although interest rates remain on a low level, historically speaking, the question now is: Did people take advantage of the low-interest cycle of the past 10 years? And did Germany’s homeownership rate increase as a result? Did buy-to-let investors benefit more from it than owner-occupiers? And who has an easier time handling the rising interest expenses? The ACCENTRO Homeownership Report seeks to answer these questions and makes recommendations for action, urging policymakers to support home buyers in times like these.
Inflation rates of 7 to 8 percent put considerable strain on consumers, and can dampen the willingness to invest. Still, real estate is considered an investment type that largely acts as an inflation safeguard – the ACCENTRO Homeownership Report examines the outlook of residential real estate in times of high inflation.
