Demographic developments are leading not only to increasing demand for housing but also to more diversified demand. Businesses are starting to make the use of the workplace increasingly flexible on the basis of “the New World of Work” and the retail sector is facing many challenges due to the enormous emergence of E-commerce.
In connection with our society’s more dynamic attitude to career and leisure time, people are viewing the use of real estate and transport by car, train or other means in inner cities more as a facility and want to see it become more flexible in terms of length of stay and use. This is conducive, broadly speaking, to a greater demand for property to rent.
As a result of this persistent trend, professional investors would be wise to act much more as a facilitator and make their real estate portfolio available to end users. This requires more expertise in order to avoid the risks of future vacancies and of maintaining rent levels in relation to the necessary quality of the building and its installations.
