Structures of Residential Property Finance 2017

Thomas Hofer, vdpResearch

The Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp) commissioned vdpResearch to conduct a survey in summer 2017 on the structure of the financing of single-family houses and freehold apartments among the vdp member banks active in this business field. The aim is to obtain, on the basis of recent data, consistent information on property purchase prices and market values as well as on the borrowed funds employed and the debt burden borne by borrowers in financing residential property in Germany. This study follows on from earlier surveys carried out among Pfandbrief banks on this topic.
