Household sizes in Berlin (Zensus 2011)
Strong demand for compact apartments
In Berlin, 49.1% of the population live in single-person households: Berlin is Germany’s undisputed capital of singles. Commuters, project workers, students – they all need living space and it is a well-known fact that housing is in short supply in Berlin. In order to live affordable, many people are reacting by economising on space. As a result, demand for intelligently designed 1-room apartments is high and set to remain so for man years to come.

Attractive rental yields of up to 4.5% p.a.
Compact living spaces equal relatively high rents . This is because residents have everything they need in the most efficient space. Net rents (excluding heating/utilities) start at EUR 513 per month and average EUR 698 per month . Thus, landlords profit from achivable rental yields of up to 4.5% p.a. These are not fantasy rental expectations, they are based on specific commitments by a commercial tenant who wishes to rent the apartments after completion. The final decision lies with the buyer.
Excluded from the Berlin rent cap
The Berlin rent cap does not apply to FOX CUBE because new-build apartments that were ready for first occupancy after 1 January 2014 are exempted from the rent cap. This means that you, as one of the apartment’s owners, can charge a market rent and don’t need to worry about declining rental returns.
A commercial tenant has already agreed to rent all of the apartments in FOX CUBE at guaranteed net rents. All apartment yields are calculated on the basis of these net rents. As an investor, you have the security of knowing a tenant is already lined up when you buy an apartment. At the same time, this is only an offer and you are under no obligation to accept it.
