Düsseldorf – “High quality of life at moderate living costs”

City overview

Ranked as number one for foreign direct investment in Germany, Düsseldorf is a cosmopolitan city and an international business hub for leading trade fairs. Thanks to its high quality of life at moderate living costs, the city attracts many international companies and global investors. As the city is located in the heart of Europe, Düsseldorf airport is Germany's third largest passenger airport and is also an important contributor to ensure its significance in Europe.

Due to its steady economic growth and diverse leisure facilities, Düsseldorf is a highly sought-after residential destination for many people. With a population of 600,000 citizens, Düsseldorf is Germany's sixth largest city. A total of 11.4 million people live within just one hour drive radius. And nearly one third of all consumers in the EU live within a 500-kilometer radius of Düsseldorf.

As Düsseldorf is known for its high quality of life and work-life balance, the city also earns a reputation as a great city for expats and their families. Foreigners account for about 17% of the city's population. The Japanese and Chinese communities, in particular, have been growing rapidly, making Düsseldorf a thriving international business location in Europe.

Real estate market trends & outlook

In Düsseldorf, prices for purchasing apartments or houses have risen for more than 81% since 2009. Yet, compared to other metropolitan areas, growth in both asking and rental price remains below national average. This is mainly caused by comparatively strong construction activity, high vacancy and relatively slow population growth. The number of households is forecasted to increase by 50,000, from currently 330,000 to approximately 380,000 by 2040, according to NRW Bank.

Strong economic base and stable growth rate in the region will continue to stimulate the residential real estate market in the long term, this means there will be a significant increase in value in real estate in Düsseldorf. The average price for buying property in Düsseldorf has reached to €3,660/sqm in the first half of 2018. The average price of a single-family home increased by more than 2.3% compared to the previous year. If you are considering to buy one, the average asking price will set you back with €858,719 for your new home, or even up to 4.1 million € in the most expensive locations. Meanwhile, rental prices have also increased by 2.4% to an average of €11,15/sqm/month.

Düsseldorf's real estate market could be as interest-rate-sensitive as Hamburg, given the slower than average population growth rate. As a result, demand for housing is not as high as other major German cities such as Berlin and Munich. Construction volumes in Düsseldorf is also predicted to expand by 16% every year. Nonetheless, given Düsseldorf's success in attracting foreign investors, prices and rents are expected to continue to rise further.

We’re in partnerships with many property listing websites and real estate agents to help you find a home. For instance, neubau kompass is a great website to find new build apartments or houses, if you’re planning to purchase real estate in Duesseldorf!
