Greix—Decline in apartment prices for existing stock, new construction prices stable

A comparison of apartment price trends by year of construction in Germany’s largest cities reveals a notable pattern: While prices for new buildings have experienced a relatively modest decline from their peak, the value of existing properties has fallen by more than twice as much. This finding comes from a comprehensive data analysis conducted by the German Real Estate Index (Greix), a project of ECONtribute and the Kiel Institute. In cooperation with local real estate expert committees, transaction prices of German residential real estate are tracked using state-of-the-art scientific methods.
