Liebe Leserinnen, lieber Leser,

dass ausgerechnet in Berlin jetzt für einen möglichen Volksentscheid Unterschriften gesammelt werden, bestürzt mich. Das historische Gedächtnis erscheint hier kurz und reicht anscheinend nur bis zum Mauerfall.

Deswegen erinnere ich daran, dass es in der DDR Zuweisungen in Wohnungen gegeben hat und noch 1989 nur 82 Prozent aller Wohnungen über Bad oder Dusche verfügten. In der Bundesrepublik waren es seinerzeit 99 Prozent. Ob der Staat der bessere Vermieter ist, lässt sich also schon bei diesem Beispiel in Frage stellen.

Goals & Methodology

Context and Conception

The Deutsche Hypo Real Estate Economy Index provides a macroeconomic analysis of the German real estate industry. And this on a monthly basis.

But this was not always the case. As one of the most important branches of the economy, the real estate sector has long lacked an economic sector analysis that enables a holistic view of all real estate segments. This information gap has been closing bulwiengesa since January 2008, and Deutsche Hypo has been publishing the Real Estate Economy Index since 2012 as an early indicator of economic turning points.

On this page you will find answers to questions about objectives and methodology.

That is how it was then

Since 2008, the Deutsche Hypo Real Estate Economy Index has been supporting market players in strategic decision-making. Introduced in the midst of the past financial crisis, the Deutsche Hypo Index has in the meantime developed into a benchmark indicator and has since then documented the German real estate cycles and their turning points.
