The General Exchange
Real estate deals sealed with a handshake
For a number of years, real estate in large cities has been enjoying increasing popularity. Between 2014 and 2015, real estate investments in Hamburg rose by 33 percent to Euro 10.64 billion.
In addition to low interest rates, a growing population, an increasing number of tourists and the diversified economic structure have all played a role in boosting the appeal of the Hamburg market. Many of these transactions are managed by members of the General Exchange, where all kinds of real estate transactions are initiated and valuations and market information shared between members. Such joint business is subject to strict regulations, which often form the basis for the smooth management of an extremely complex real estate transaction.
