The German property market is atypical with its low housing prices and contributes to its very competitive economy. While the property prices rose more than 100% during the first ten years in France and the UK, this increase was only of 10% in the same period in Germany. First of all it can be explained by the fact that the German economy is not centralized and is distributed on seven big cities. Therefore the pressure of housing demand is dispersed on the whole country. Furthermore, “Germany developed a “tenant mentality” as the quality of the goods is the same for the acquisition and location, and since the rent cost was ridiculous during many years. This mentality is stimulated by a high stability of hosing prices.” “Moreover, the federal state did not undertake anything to develop a “Germany of owners”. Finally, the low birth rate and the possibility to build new accommodations should limit the rise of property prices in the future.
