Investment classes in focus: multi-family homes, co-living and microliving

Residential real estate is one of the most popular asset classes in the real estate industry. The high demand for residential space in conurbations and metropolitan areas leads to a constantly high interest of investors and project developers in interesting projects. The residential asset class essentially comprises multi-family houses and residential properties with a mixed-use component. These can be stores as well as offices, with these components often found on the first floor. One type of property that has become increasingly important in recent years is microliving. This includes not only student living, but also serviced apartments and similar types of apartment buildings. Entire residential portfolios are of interest to large, often international investors. So if you want to sell one of these property classes, our database is an optimal entry point into the market.
