Sustainability influences markt values
Sustainable investments will determine the German market in the future. The amendment of the Climate Protection Act ordered by the Federal Constitutional Court and the possible participation of the Green Party in the next government give additional momentum to the issue. The market values for properties with a sustainability certificate are higher. Tenants pay a higher rent for such properties and the vacancy rates are lower. Based on the higher quality of the building, sustainable properties also have a more prolonged economic lifetime and lower operating costs. At the exit, such properties can be marketed more advantageously. The image gain for everyone involved in the transaction should not be underestimated. Investment properties in Germany without consideration of the sustainability aspect will, due to the increasing environmental awareness, lose value in the future.
