Real estate news – We had only in this week our large special to the topic: Flat inspection. Also the Süddeutsche newspaper concerns itself today with the topic. More precisely, it is about moving into the new apartment or the new dream house. Low interest rates are currently causing rents and purchase prices to rise. Why and why, illuminates the mirror in this week More interesting is however the article ?the new city flight? in the Federal Gazette. This deals, after all the long years of “rural exodus” with the new phenomenon that many are drawn to the suburbs of major cities or even further out into the countryside.
City escape: The feeling of wanting to live in the country again
Just a few years ago, the rural exodus was considered an integral part of German demographics (More on Statistics / Real Estate & Housing). More and more parts of the population in the country, wanted to try their luck in the city. The rural areas are thereby for a long time not only threatened, from the departure of the people, real are millions of people from small villages in the city moved. Large metropolises such as Berlin or Frankfurt am Main can hardly save themselves from the influx of residents. In Berlin alone, 30,000 people move into the city every year. Of course, there are also many people who move to Germany and have not lived here before. But the majority of people are from Germany and mostly from sparsely populated, rural areas.
The growing pull of the cities not only ensures that fewer and fewer people live in the countryside, of course, the local economy suffers from it. Ultimately, of course, the social life, from the classic example, the bus that comes only once an hour, if at all. To the baker around the corner or the supermarket that has to close because there are no longer enough customers for the business. For a long time, there was virtually nothing to counter this trend. Save the province! That was the motto throughout.
Not a good outlook for sellers, but now people and young families are coming back! Today there is slowly a counter-current, more and more people are trying to escape the conurbations and are looking for their fortune in the countryside again. In doing so, it’s no longer just to the suburbs, but rather to the bastions of the cities. You can read more about this topic in this week’s Bundesanzeiger:
