Germany Rating: Capital Investment Location Comparison

Current Lukinski Ratings:

Metropolises (17) 500,000 inhabitants and more

Here you will find all 17 metropolises with more than 500,000 inhabitants. You should definitely avoid the top 8 for your first investment, because there are no or only very difficult returns to get here. Berlin, Hamburg, Munich & Co.

Large cities (67) up to 500,000 inhabitants

Often more interesting than the metropolises, the numerous big cities in Germany. From east (Leipzig) to west (Bonn), north (Rostock) and south (Nuremberg). Here you will find good yield properties with A and B ratings.

A / A+ Ratings: Hidden Champions

A / A+ ratings means fairly secure performance. Perfect for investment properties with low yield but high, later resale value. At the same time a strong inflation protection. However, in metropolises like Munich, nothing for real estate beginners without sufficient equity.

B- / B / B+ Ratings

All B ratings show cities with solid development. Here you can also find yield properties that immediately provide income that covers your monthly burdens around repayment, interest and maintenance. Ideally with additional extra, for active asset accumulation.

C- / C / C+ Ratings

All C ratings show cities with lower growth rates. Here, real estate as an investment should be treated with caution, because the vacancy risk is greater. This means that you pay more for every month in which your property is not rented out. In addition, the increase in value of the property is very low, to hardly available.

D- / D Ratings: Risk Champions

D-rated cities have high risk, because their entire structure is extremely stagnant or even reduced. Economy, inhabitants, infrastructure, these are all indicators. D-Ratings are definitely not for beginners. Here you need not only experience, but also very good local knowledge to find the few, profitable properties. However, you will hardly ever experience an increase in value here.
