CBRE provides investors, owners and landlords with individual and targeted support with the increasing requirements in the residential real estate sector.


Stable returns and crisis resilience

Residential real estate is the classic ‘concrete gold’ – a sector which achieves stable returns and is resilient to crises. However, this depends on location and other factors such as energy efficiency, technical fit-out and layout. Sound market knowledge is essential, particularly when it comes to valuations and transactions.

Residential properties and land are much sought-after in the real estate investment market. They are in particularly high demand among German and international institutional investors and family offices in metropolitan areas - and the trend is growing. In Germany, the strong influx into the major cities and university locations, and an increasing shortage of living space and available building land, have led to considerable growth in values and returns. At the same time, demographic change, changing occupier needs, regional characteristics, ESG requirements and regulation mean that there are constant challenges requiring professional assistance from our experts.

Wide range of services

Whether you are an institutional or private investor or a developer, or if you represent the public sector - as a leading global real estate service provider, we offer a full range of services to support you in achieving your goals. For example, we undertake valuations of residential complexes, apartment buildings and residential portfolios, we advise on real estate transaction processes and we support portfolio management companies with our expertise in strategic and operational issues.

Individual and targeted solutions

The successful purchase, management and sale of land and real estate require individual and targeted solutions. We advise our clients on every important issue in the value creation cycle: 

  • Investors: our activities focus on satisfying our clients, or satisfying you as an investor. Our specialist teams have the best possible access to the market and networks to provide you with effective and targeted support as an institutional investor, developer, trust, public sector decision-maker or family office through every phase of the value creation cycle.

They are experienced civil engineers, architects, financial experts and real estate professionals. When preparing property appraisals we also draw on our in-house research department with its comprehensive market transaction database.
