A 20,000 square meter building plot for 19 million euros in Feldafing: This offer is not even exorbitantly expensive.
Only: The area is meadow and forest with no chance of being ready for construction.
There is a big misunderstanding behind this, which has developed through discussions on several corners.
- "Building plot for real estate developers" was in the ad on immowelt.de.
Price: 19 million euros, size: 20,000 square meters.
Sure, building land prices around Lake Starnberg are high, and 20,000 square meters is a lot.
Anyone familiar with Feldafing will immediately ask themselves: where is this huge building plot in a central location?
The answer was given by the broker named on the website at the request of Starnberger Merkur.
"On Pöckinger Strasse, at the end of town towards Pöcking on the right-hand side," said the real estate expert, who has his office in Austria.
What the real estate agent doesn't know: There is no building law there.
The property is outside, there is no development plan, and in the land use plan it is marked as a site-appropriate forest and green area and partly as a landscape conservation area.
There is only a little house in the middle, but currently not inhabited.
The advertisement says, as is usually stated in such advertisements: "The exact building regulations can be obtained from the municipal office.
All information comes from the owner and is not guaranteed.”
Feldafinger Mayor Bernhard Sontheim can answer this question in one short sentence.
“There is no building permit there.
Not a square meter of building rights.” And there are no plans to issue building rights there.
He too had wondered where in Feldafing such a large building-ready area could be located.
"I was amazed by this ad," he said.
He checked and found that the area in question consists of seven different floor numbers, five or six owners are affected.
He could not find out whether anyone in the building authority asked about the possible building law: "Due to illness, the building authority is not manned at the moment."
According to the Austrian broker, there are interested parties for the property.
"Some have come forward," he explained.
"Especially builders and real estate developers could do something with it."
The question remains as to how the offer on the Internet came about at all.
In short: one thing led to another, and because of the research by Starnberger Merkur, the advert is no longer available on the Internet.
Sontheim has spoken to the owner's spokesman, who does not own any property there himself.
"The man was very friendly and willingly gave me information," says the mayor.
The spokesman had a property for sale on the east side of Lake Starnberg and got into conversation with one of the Feldafinger owners when looking for a buyer.
He assured that he would act in agreement with all owners.
In one of these conversations, the idea of a retirement home came up.
The man with the property on the east bank then switched on the broker from Austria, according to Sontheim.
And he obviously didn't look at the property properly.
And Sontheim found out that not all property owners were informed either.
"I know one of them and they didn't know about it."
In terms of price, the Feldafinger offer of 950 euros per square meter could almost be described as cheap - if it had been a plot of land ready for construction.
Other offers on immowelt.de from Feldafing and Pöcking are between 1800 and 2300 euros per square meter of building land.
The price for agricultural land, on the other hand, is currently around 16 euros.
Incidentally, after several discussions over the weekend, the broker and owner have agreed to delete the ad.
