Even in the construction industry there has always been disagreement about what services a professional project developer can and should provide. This is certainly due, at least in part, to the fact that the profession of project developer is not protected in Germany and consequently experts from the fields of business administration and architecture with varying professional profiles are active in this area. On the other hand, however, the schools of thought represented in the architecture sector and the construction industry also have different priorities.

Whether it be making an expressive contrast or creating a harmonious setting, modern garden design is as multifaceted as the architecture that surrounds it. However, when the green spaces are not only exquisite in their own right, but are also equal to the property to which they belong in terms of both aesthetics and functionality, they achieve a level of attention to detail that makes all the difference between a stylish residential unit and a true luxury property.

A high-quality residential property is not only an investment with stable value, it also allows owners to leave something to the next generation that will last and which the beneficiaries can ideally even take over at full value. This is because, under the right conditions, not only can real estate in Germany be inherited tax-free, it can also be subsequently sold on tax-free.

The term ‘Luxus’ (luxury), borrowed from Latin, has been an integral part of the German vocabulary since the 16th century. [1]. Literally translated, it can either mean ‘splendour’, ‘extravagance’ or ‘abundance’, but also ‘waste’ and ‘debauchery’. [2]. This latter meaning is rarely used today, however, and over time the term has acquired a predominantly positive connotation – at least in German.

A property is a long-term investment. So it’s all the more important that buyers feel well advised.

Anyone considering investing in real estate does not necessarily have to purchase a house or an apartment. If investment is defined as the ‘long-term commitment of financial resources into tangible or intangible assets’, we can safely conclude that any form of investment that commits capital into property may be considered a real estate investment.

Nothing enhances a property like a penthouse – and there’s no more coveted residential unit than the luxury apartment on the top floor. For good reason too: a penthouse combines maximum comfort and privacy with unobstructed panoramic views to create an extraordinary feel-good ambience.

Among the apartments and villas in prime locations, many German portfolios also include so-called ‘Liegenschaften’. But what distinguishes ‘Liegenschaften’ from other luxury properties? On the one hand, their spaciousness – on the other, a particularly high standard of location and quality.
