City of Frankfurt

High rise commercial and real estate buildings Frankfurt

City overview

Frankfurt, the biggest city in the state of Hesse (Hessen), is best-known for housing the “Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse” -- the largest stock exchange in Germany (10th largest by market cap globally). With a population of more than 2.3 million, including its urban area, Frankfurt is the 5th largest city in Germany. Besides hosting the headquarters for major banks, financial institutions and multinational corporations in Germany, the city also has one of the largest commercial airports in the world. People like to call it “Mainhatten”, because the city has the largest number of skyscrapers in the EU.

Frankfurt has one of the highest densities in the region with a current population of 729,624, there has been an increase of 64,300 residents (~9%) since 2009. In 2012, Frankfurt attained the title of the highest productivity of Germany's 30 largest cities with a GDP of €84,427 Euros per employed person (in 2012).

Compared to other major German cities, Frankfurt has a considerably low unemployment rate of 5.6%. Frankfurt is also culturally and ethnically diverse, with 51.2% of the population having an immigrant background in 2015. Home to as many as 180 nationalities, Frankfurt is a very multicultural city. It has the second-largest Korean community in the whole of Europe, as well as the largest Sri Lankan Tamil community in Germany.

Real estate market trends & outlook

Recent developments, especially with Brexit day fast approaching, real estate prices in Frankfurt have shot up. Given that up to 10,000 bankers could relocate from London to Frankfurt, this will drive further demand for housing in certain prime locations, such as Spitzenlagen. In fact, there has already been a steady increase of sales inquiries from people in London. But regardless of Brexit, populations in Frankfurt are expected to increase by 70,000 to 800,000 people by 2027.

The average price for buying property in Frankfurt has increased by 10.7% in the first half of 2018 and rose to over €5,300/sqm compared to the previous year. In some of the top locations, the real estate prices can even reach up to €13,500/sqm. Single-family homes are sold on average for €776,706 (+2.3%). Meanwhile, asking rents for apartments/houses in Frankfurt rose by 3.6% to €14.55/sqm per month over the first half of 2018. In contrast, asking rents have only risen by an average of 2.5% p.a. since 2004.

Development of at least 7,000 new apartments per year are required in order to meet the demand in Frankfurt over the next few years. This target seems unattainable with the current scarcity of development sites. The lack of residential space means that further population growth will continue to determine the housing market in Frankfurt for many years to come.
