Why Invest in Leipzig Property?


Germany’s fastest growing city population

After experiencing a decline after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Leipzig’s population currently stands at over 600,000 people today. An estimated 750,00 residents (+25%) are expected to be living in Leipzig by 2035. This factor has largely contributed to the increased interest in people looking to buy investment properties in Leipzig.

Leipzig’s economy is forecast to expand by 75% to 2035, having already doubled the size since 2000.

Leipzig has refocused its economy on five key business clusters in promising industries. These clusters have experienced the highest levels of employment growth since 2005 and form a robust platform for the diverse economy to innovate and grow sustainably.

Housing supply has been slow to respond to population expansion fuelling strong price growth.

With a mere 13,510 apartments completed in the decade up to 2017, the vacancy rate has tumbled from as high as 12% in 2011 to as low as 2% today. As a result, property prices have experienced double-digit capital appreciation rates over the last five years. Buying investment properties in Leipzig is still, however, twice as affordable when compared to Berlin and many other well-established cities in Germany.
