As far as prices for houses and apartments are concerned, Munich is usually way ahead within Germany. But the city even made it to the top internationally.



As far as prices for houses and apartments are concerned, Munich is usually way ahead within Germany.

But the city even made it to the top internationally.

In many German cities, especially Munich *, real estate prices have risen sharply in recent years.

To get hold of even one square meter of living space in the Bavarian capital, more than 10,000 euros have to be paid.

Frankfurt's square meter prices have also risen sharply and are reaching similar spheres.

But is it still worth buying?

Most overvalued real estate market: Munich threatened by real estate bubble

A study by the Swiss bank UBS has

filtered out

the most overrated cities worldwide

in the so-called “UBS Global Real Estate Bubble Index”

.

Some of them face a "bubble risk," as they say.

UBS understands this to mean a strong and permanent

deviation of the price level

from the development of income, economic growth or even population migration.

Munich

is the city that is most

severely

affected

by a

bubble risk

in the "Bubble Index" worldwide

- just behind is

another German city,

Frankfurt

.

This means that property prices are even more overpriced here than in metropolises such as New York, Los Angeles or London.

The euro area is generally the region with the most

overheated housing markets

, according to the study.

In many European cities, prices rose by more than five percent last year.

In Munich and Frankfurt, prices have even doubled in the last ten years.

Matthias Holzhey, lead author of the study and head of Swiss Real Estate at UBS CIO GWM, says: “The cities in the bubble risk zone are apparently coping with the corona crisis relatively well.

The local economies in Munich, Toronto and Hong Kong are expected to recover quickly.

But even if there is no broad market correction, the potential for further capital gains is likely to be exhausted.

Above all, the earnings prospects of rented condominiums are poor in view of the record-high price-rent ratios. "

Overpriced real estate prices in Munich - that's how long you have to work for an apartment

As Spiegel writes, the strong local economy in combination with a lack of living space and simultaneous population growth are the main reasons for the overheated real estate market in Munich.

A qualified employee from the service sector would currently have

to raise

around

nine annual

incomes to finance a 60 square meter apartment near the city center.

If you rent an apartment of the same size, it would take 39 years to get the money back.
