Property investment in Germany
For the past decade, the German real estate market has been undergoing a phase of total restructuring and internationalization. This process has intensified during the last five years, with the economic crisis leading to a flow of capital not only from traditional investors in the Scandinavian countries but also from the European South for investments in the German commercial and residential real estate market.
Cities such as Berlin, Leipzig, Munich and Bremen became and remain the focal point of interest of foreign investors who in the German real estate market are primarily looking for security and stability, and secondarily high returns.
Integrated solutions for the complex needs of foreign investors
AP & Generalis specializes in meeting the increasingly complex needs of foreign investors in a market perhaps unfamiliar to them, meaning they require not only legal and practical advice but also realistic support in selecting the right property and later in matters relating to the management of real estate acquired.
With this in mind, AP & Generalis from the outset approaches the issue of acquiring real estate in Germany from an overall perspective, informing each investor about the particularities of the German property market, undertaking and expediting the entire purchase from the initial stages (opening an account with a German bank, choosing the most suitable real estate broker), during the process (preliminary checks, coordination of the technical inspection, assessment of tax liabilities, preliminary purchase agreement, drafting of the contract in cooperation with a notarial office) and dealing with any other matters that may arise after purchase (management, leasing, resale, tax declaration, succession planning and administration, etc.).
