Belfast Hilton, November 24 and 25 2007

Berlin Capital Investments, a UK-based team of German property investment experts is giving would-be investors the opportunity to learn from experts about every aspect of buying and owning a property in Berlin. The free property show is being held in Belfast at the Hilton Hotel, 4, Lanyon Place, BT1 on November 24 and 25 from 10 am until 7 pm.

Visitors can expect to receive advice from this highly experienced team about investing in the German property market at either the seminars, which will be held at various times during the day.

Present at the show and available for discussions with investors will be accountants, lawyers and mortgage brokers who specialise in the Berlin market.

"With such low prices and a greatly improving German economy there is a great deal of interest in the German market at present. We have found in this relatively new market that many investors are put off by not knowing about legal, tax and finance issues," said Julian Power, Managing Director, Berlin Capital Investments. "We have organized this event to ensure that investors can meet real independent specialists and ask all the questions they want. This is their best opportunity to learn about the implications and practicalities of buying in Berlin. At the same time they will be able to see real information on a range of properties for sale, including some new projects to be exclusively launched at the show.

It is a great time to buy in Germany. We are beginning to see sustained price increases on apartments and Berlin remains fantastic value compared to any other major European capital. There are also now a number of direct flights from Belfast to Berlin, making inspection trips easier than ever before."

At the seminars, in which places have to be booked in advance, each expert – real estate lawyer, tax accountant and a mortgage broker, as well as a property developer, all with long experience in the Berlin property market – will give a talk on their specialist subject.

In addition Berlin Capital Investments will be show-casing several exciting new opportunities in Berlin. These are to be exclusively launched at the show, giving investors an early chance to secure the best units. These will include Dunkerstrasse, Prenzlauerberg. This is a restored altbau building in what is probably Berlin’s most popular and trendy location. The apartments range in price from 60,000 Euros (£42,000) for a studio to 185,000 Euros (£130,000) for a penthouse. Just minutes from the famous Kollwitzplatz this is a great rental location, as well as being characterized by many owner-occupiers.

Berlin Capital Investments believes the German property market offers property investors excellent opportunities. Germany is the only major European country that has not had any kind of property boom over the last ten years. Prices are low, and rents are low. Over the next years, the company believes that fundamental market dynamics are going to change dramatically. For those who buy the right kind of property, rental and capital growth will be strong over the next 10 years. For those with a portfolio approach to property, Berlin Capital Investments believe that having an apartment in Germany is a 'must-have'.

Germany currently has the most affordable housing in the western world, while changing market dynamics are likely to drive up home-ownership from its current rate of 43% (the lowest of any industrialised nation). In Germany there is an increasing demand for quality housing due to a rising number of households, growing living space requirements and a lack of investment, all factors that are likely to drive capital growth.

Entry to the seminars are free, but places are limited. Attendees can book a place by going to or calling 020 7099 7277.

The address of the Hilton Belfast Hotel is 4, Lanyon Place, Belfast BT1 3LP
