Berlin: How To Invest in Europe’s Fastest Growing Property Market
Last week Fifth Element proudly hosted our first Berlin property seminar at The Four Seasons Hotel. For the first time in Hong Kong, we introduced four real estate companies who can help investors fulfil and maintain their investment ambitions across multiple disciplines. The four companies included Buy Berlin, Engel & Volkers, and German Admin 4 U.
Our unique role at Fifth Element is to simultaneously represent all of these firms as the first point of contact for any investor seeking to make a real estate acquisition, whilst also providing education, advice and consultancy on the most suitable investment for you. Moreover, for those with existing real estate, we can expertly advise and guide clients on the best ways to maximise the return on their investment.
Below is a quick recap of the event highlighting the key content:
Supported by some key statistics and information, Darrell Smith of Buy Berlin presented a convincing case for looking beyond the main districts for even better value for money. He advised on the best areas to invest in Berlin for buyers that are looking to make their entry into the market and also showcased his invaluable experience in guiding clients through the buying process by explaining the best way to manage your property to maximise returns.

Engel & Volkers
Berlin’s largest real estate broker, Engel & Volkers, who work directly with Fifth Element to provide access to investment opportunities across all price ranges, were represented by their Business Development Manager for Asia, Jan Hoepper. Jan focused his talk on the compelling case for the premium and luxury market, positioning it rightly as an incredible value proposition and growth opportunity, particularly when referenced against other European and indeed global cities.

German Admin 4 U
German Admin 4 U were represented by their founder, Oleg Schneider, who did a wonderful job of making the complexities of German real estate tax seem both entertaining and accessible – not a mean feat! Whilst his tone was jovial, the administrative behemoth of property investment should not be overlooked, and the services he can provide to take the hassles and headaches out of this aspect of ownership are second to none.

Berlin is a global city; a tier one city presently trading at tier three prices, with the eyes of the world upon it. From the economy to education; employment to enterprise, Berlin has everything needed to satisfy even the most cautious of investor. With new build projects available from EUR110,000/HKD930,000/USD120,000 – and mortgages now available at 70% (loan amount over EUR50,000 and interest rates below 2%) there has never been a better time to buy Berlin, than right now.
