When a party is at its peak, it’s time to leave. The same goes for those investing in the German real estate market: those who invested in the German residential real estate market have made considerable profits by now, on paper at least. In this article, John Amram, director of HPBA, argues that a profit is only a profit once the investment has been liquidated, and that the current financial climate in Germany promises excellent returns. Exiting now would also mean gaining the capital required to reinvest into other promising asset classes. Amram suggests that the time to exit is now as Brexit and the German elections in September will bring with them uncertainty and further restrictions. He concludes by saying that the market remains ripe for certain participants; patient investors are encouraged to invest, but opportunists should move on.
