For a long time Stuttgart was without alternative. The rapid price increases in the basin provide for migrations to the family-friendly surrounding area.
It is not ten years ago, because it was not so easy with the Stuttgart area. Even then, Esslingen & Co. was already attractive, well connected and as a residential location a fully fledged alternative. Often there was still a lack of willingness to spend half an hour on public transport in the morning on the way to work. Stuttgart is a car city and the term commuter has a negative connotation in the region. All the more surprising, if you put the travel times of the train in the right light: So it takes from the southwest Herrenberg to the main station with the S1 no 40 minutes.
In the meantime, we get a completely different picture. The price jumps of past years have driven mainly families into the surrounding countryside. Many can no longer afford the metropolis, others do not want it. Others argue with the better quality of life found outside the cauldron. Young, working families are looking for happiness away from the big city. She moves to places with mature and good infrastructure. With suitable connection to Stuttgart via rail or road.
The offer is becoming increasingly scarce at moderately rising prices. The time of bargains is long gone. Exceptions are locations that are not directly on the S-Bahn. Also objects in which the self-realization requires manual skill. In the preferred addresses, the market has become significantly narrower in recent years. Not least because of the fact that the locations themselves have always been the finest. There are no alternatives that are rediscovered out of necessity. Anyone who lives in Esslingen knows what he has in the city. The new clientele is discovering these benefits for themselves.
In the past 20 years, the average price in inventory has increased just by 77.4 percent (from 1,758 to 3,118 euros). If one excludes inflation in this time, then this is not a big win. In addition, 59 percent of this increase alone was recorded in recent years and 14.8 percent alone from 2015 to 2016. There can be no better proof of the need to catch up in terms of price development.
The numbers in the new building: If the square meter in 1997 still at 2,656 euros, it was in 2016 at 5,442 - a good 100 percent increase in 20 years. But even here, the lion's share (61.5 percent!) Results from the increases of the past five years (2011 to 2016). It can be seen that just a little bit of reassurance could be found in this segment, that the increase from 2015 to 2016 was just 7.8 percent. That is respectable, but not spectacular anymore. In the first quarter of 2017, double-digit growth rates have again been recorded. In addition, the land values in the city have been revised upwards by up to 35 percent (Stuttgart North).
Stuttgart is a highly emotional market. The situation has always been tense. At least in the field of luxury apartments (purchase prices beyond 1.5 million euros) has now become saturated. The one searches in other segments and situations in vain. Who has reasonable objects in the city between 500,000 and 1.5 million euros to offer, which need not worry. This is "fast launcher". Sometimes these objects are not even on the market. Too many prospects who either do not have to finance or pay in cash. A balanced market situation looks different.
There is a lot of movement in the peripheral areas. There it is not cheaper or less expensive. The Stuttgart East can build on the development of the West within a few years. Hedelfingen, Wangen and Stuttgart-Ost themselves enjoy a growing demand. In the south, it is Plieningen or Möhringen that cause interest for the same reason. Necessity is ingenious, because in the city center new housing prices have to be paid for apartment buildings.
There is also movement in the north. The Skyline, a residential tower with partly spectacular rental apartments, is being built at Höhenpark Killesberg. But a tower alone does not make any position. The area of the Prague saddle has developed positively in recent years. Infrastructural and residential construction, the location increases.
This also applies to Waiblingen and the Rems-Murr-Kreis. Here, the distance to Stuttgart and the quality of life are perfect. In Waiblingen, the western parts of the old town and the Galgenberg are in the sights of those interested. Demand in this region extends to Schorndorf, the end of the S-Bahn line S2. In this very scenic area has between 450,000 and 750,000 euros, especially in the inventory something like a selection. However, prices have increased significantly in recent years, the supply is visibly tightening. At the top, the border in this region is 1.5 million euros (houses) or just over 5,000 euros per square meter for flats.
In the southeast of Stuttgart Esslingen and the Filder lie directly on the city limits of Stuttgart. This surrounding area of the Swabian metropolis will probably be the best choice. Esslingen as a financially strong district town fulfills almost all wishes. These include the half-height plains so popular in this region. The result was and is price increases. 6,000 euros per square meter are not uncommon in Esslingen, as well as house prices beyond the two-million-euro limit - and rising. Attraction has its price. This applies in this direction to Kirchheim / Teck.
In the south and southwest, the proximity to the airport and the new fair include - provided you have no aircraft noise. A point that also applies to the southern outskirts of Stuttgart. There are numerous locations between Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Sindelfingen and Böblingen, which are less than 30 minutes away from Stuttgart city center. Added to this is the high level of economic power on the ground. Whether Sindelfingen as the largest center in the economic and high-growth district and city Böblingen even with its nationally known airfield. Many seekers will only be aware of how well they can live there. Currently, the prices in the top are between 5,000 and 6,000 euros per square meter.
Locations in the west and north of Stuttgart are also in high demand. Especially when they are in the catchment area of the railway and the four-lane road - such as Leonberg and Gerlingen or Ludwigsburg.
