Being at home where city dwellers go on vacation
In Brandenburg, Berlin’s surrounding region, you will live in a true family paradise and in one of the most popular places to reside and relax on the periphery. At the gates of the capital, you will find hubs such as BER Airport, the Tesla factory in Grünheide and numerous exciting settlements of international companies in the tech industry in Potsdam. The trend towards country living continues unabated – the boom that the region has recently experienced is unparalleled and makes a move from Berlin to communities like Brandenburg an der Havel or Kleinmachnow more attractive than ever. With plenty of nature, a growing cultural scene and an excellent infrastructure, Brandenburg is a convincing choice, offering lots of green space, proximity to water and historically grown town centers. You will find more than enough space for recreation as a family, couple, young working- or single person through our unique offer of single-family homes, villas and condominiums.
The popularity of the region is reflected not least in the population figures: According to the Office for Statistics, Brandenburg has been able to gain over 18,479 new residents from the capital in 2021 and is thus a population winner region, which is experiencing a demographic change due to the influx of many families. Since 1990, the population of the Berlin region has almost doubled. According to the WFBB-Billanz, a record was achieved in the number of newly created jobs: approx. 10,000 new jobs were realized within the framework of projects. The U.S. electric car manufacturer Tesla alone accounted for 8,500 of these jobs.
Price development in the suburbs
Between 2019 and 2022, according to surveys by the Institute of the German Economy, asking prices per square meter for condominiums in 19 communities surrounding Berlin increased by around 18% annually. This is almost twice as strong a development compared to the capital Berlin. The same can be observed for rental prices. These rose by around 5.4% annually over the same period.
With an average price per square meter of €2,670 (2023), prospective buyers are purchasing houses for around €2,705/m² and condominiums for around €2,648/m² (Immowelt.de). The price trend in the suburbs is expected to continue to rise in the future despite higher construction interest rates and sharply rising construction costs. Demand remains high. “As far out as possible, but as close to Berlin as necessary” is the motto of many. The lockdown experiences of city dwellers in city apartments without balconies has increased the desire for urban escape, as has the prospect of less commuting thanks to the home office effect and various hybrid solutions offered by many companies. These make it possible to work from home, which can be located further away. Thanks to the ideal connection, which is to be expanded in the coming period with planned investment contributions of up to 8.5 billion euros, you can quickly reach the center of the metropolis Berlin as well as the state capital Potsdam. Berlin is thus only a stone’s throw away and yet quite distant.
Brandenburg’s ambitions are greater, more sustainable and social: more is to be built and the emergence of new residential neighbourhoods is to be promoted. The perspective development of a new streetcar connection and bicycle expressway should guarantee even faster access. The creation of hundreds of new daycare and school places as well as shopping facilities is only a logical reaction to the influx of young families. What used to be far away is now developing into an up-and-coming place (in the “second tier”).
