Real estate is generally regarded a safe investment that retains its value.

  • It is protection against inflation and frequently offers tax benefits.
  • It is a sensible alternative to money in savings accounts, which are hardly worth the effort with the current low interest rates.
  • It offers greater security than shares or bonds, which react much more volatilely to fluctuations on the financial markets.
  • Buy for personal use: you only pay the maintenance costs once you have paid off the apartment and are more flexible when it comes to designing your own home.


Make the most of the benefits offered by Cologne:

  • Cologne is home to global companies such as Ford, Bayer and REWE
  • Wide range of recreational and cultural offerings
  • The population is expected to grow by around 55,000 persons by the year 2040 –which will lead to a higher demand for living space.
  • More than 6,000 new apartments will be needed every year*
  • Ehrenfeld is one of Cologne’s most popular neighbourhoods: the continued positive development of the district is foreseeable, along with rising rents and purchase prices.
  • Very good infrastructure and transport links thanks to railways and the airport
  • Very secure rental income
