Sentiment among lenders active on the German commercial real estate financing market has brightened over the past quarter: about 1 in 2 participants of a recent survey reported a rise in new business. This is up from 40% the previous quarter, reflecting a hefty 28.3% increase.
It is also one of the main reasons for the upbeat sentiment among lenders. Meanwhile, the share of financed loan volumes between 50 and 100 million euros in new business rose from 17.5 to 25.6% quarter on quarter.
Loans over more than 100 million euros account for a share of 2.6% (previous quarter: 2.5%). The bracket of 10 to 50 million euros in loan volume account for 53.8% (previous quarter: 52.5%), and that of less than 10 million euros for 17.9% (previous quarter: 27.5%).
Another reason for the good cheer are the financing parameters, which 45.5% of the respondents currently rate as more progressive quarter on quarter – compared to the 28.3% result of the previous poll. While 2.2% of the lenders still deemed the terms of financing restrictive in Q3, the figure has since dropped to zero. At the same time, the share of those who are not aware of any change in the terms of financing dropped from nearly 70 down to 54.5%.

Germany continues to be a strong power within the EU and with its financial muscle and prowess. All else equal, it is likely to trod along in its growth path despite the weight of the union bearing down on it constantly, and emerge well in its game to position itself as a leader in the EU.
