Stuttgart – Perfect city for business, innovation and real estate investment?

City overview

Considered as one of Germany’s most dynamic and innovative metropolitan region for high tech development, automotive and mechanical engineering companies and their suppliers, many world leaders such as Mercedes Benz, Robert Bosch GmbH and Porsche make Stuttgart the world’s foremost centre of expertise.

As the state capital of Baden-Württemberg, Stuttgart is a very livable city with an excellent transportation infrastructure, connecting to all major European economic centres via its growing high-speed rail network. The city has a total population of over 620,000 people, which makes it the sixth largest city in Germany. Its urban and metro area have over 2.7 million people and 5.3 million residents respectively, making it the fourth largest in the country. More than 40% of its population hails from overseas. The city and its region have been ramping up efforts to bring in foreign investment, and also promoting small and medium enterprises (SMEs) development.

Baden-Württemberg has the second-lowest unemployment rate, which currently stands at 3,4% (2017), compared to 5,5% nationwide.

Real estate market trends & outlook

Strong economic growth, increasing housing demand and limited supply have contributed to the continuous strong rises of property prices in Stuttgart. In addition, a lack of attractive investment alternatives has led to more private investors putting their capital into real estate investments, which drives up the prices even further.

Looking at the development of the local property market, the average asking price for condominium apartments have reached to €4,250/sqm in the first half of 2018, achieving a growth rate of 11% over the past 5 years. Newly built houses in prime locations around the city center can even cost €7,350 per sqm. According to a market report by Engel & Voelkers, the most expensive locations have even achieved prices of up to €11.500 per sqm.

The average rental prices have risen to €14.40/sqm per month, an increase of 6.3% year over year. Rent in prime locations in the city centre climbed to €25.30/sqm per month, up by 16% year over year. The average price of single-family homes reached to €750,575, and can cost up to €4,1 million for houses in some of the most exclusive locations.

A strong labour market and housing shortage will be the key contributors to rising real estate prices in Stuttgart. Since the city is located in a basin, it limits its potential for expansion. Therefore, supply will remain limited in the long term. Even though more than 100 hectares of plots are expected to be available for new commercial and residential projects with the construction of a new underground railway station, these plots will not be available until 2024 at the earliest. As a result, both asking and rental prices are expected to increase continuously over the next few years, which could make it an attractive investment for both local as well as foreign investors.

We’re in partnerships with multiple 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 buy a property in Stuttgart!
