Tiny microapartments making big splash among German investors

In Germany, microapartments are an increasingly popular investment on the housing market. These assets are characterized as having floor space between 20 sqm and 35 sqm, with locations in urban areas with good public transportation. Microapartments are particularly attractive to students and young professionals. In part, this is because they tend to feature community spaces and event kitchens that create opportunities for the people in the building to meet each other. In 2018, according to a new study by Cushman & Wakefield, roughly €1.5bn in deals were concluded in in the microaprtments sector, an 85 percent increase from 2017. “The concept is very clear,” said Andreas Polter, Head of Residential Portfolio Investment for C&W: “Move in, upack your suitcase and start living.”
