Investments in real estate have a long tradition and are considered one of the most reliable and stable forms of investment in the long term. Real estate as an investment object is directly linked to questions of cost-benefit and profit. It is about markets, market opportunities and the quality of a property, about the success of an investment. How do risks and opportunities, expenses and profits relate to each other? How big is the supply, how big is the demand on the local property market? How do rents, operating costs, purchase and sales costs develop? What are the general conditions in terms of taxes and fees, laws and regulations? What are the indications of future developments? How do these affect a “return on investment”?
Real estate forms a sustainable value basis and should be stable in value and economically sustainable. International guidelines such as ESG Environmental-Social-Governance and SDG Sustainability-Development-Goals were created for comprehensive value stability in the context of the environment and society. They set new standards for good real estate development and corporate governance and integrate environmental and social sustainability into the assessment of real estate values. What does this mean? Additional criteria will be included in the calculations and assessments of the economic sustainability (yield, profitability) of real estate. Already now, larger real estate investments have to prove that they meet ecological and social standards. That they create “added value” by incorporating environmental, social and corporate sustainability standards into their profitability calculations and real estate investments.
At Immobilienkultur, we understand the values and effects of real estate and real estate development in a fundamentally more comprehensive way. Ecological and social investment standards are a guideline for us to create “added values”. Diversions profitability can play a role in “space and place development”, or the lifespan and use efficiency of a property are prioritised over short-term returns. Added-value investment and yield calculation significantly integrate social and societal effects and aspects of coexistence, mobility, energy and raw material consumption, recyclability, environmental compatibility, the use of renewable raw materials, climate protection, health, and even aspects of “fairness” and forms of participation in investment.
