Real estate builds wealth – and it is important to protect and increase this wealth and to realize returns. Investors who wish to obtain ongoing attractive returns have to make smart decisions based on facts. Should I buy, hold, revitalize or sell? Knowing exactly where a property is in its lifecycle provides certainty – and helps to build high-yield portfolios that are digital, sustainable, innovative and cost-efficient.

Immobilen-Strategie für Düsseldorf

Real estate strategy for Düsseldorf: Drees & Sommer undertook a thorough examination of some 750 buildings for the City of Düsseldorf. The findings form the basis for a long-term real estate concept for the city council’s properties.


Sustainable: High-yield portfolios bank on sustainable properties. Energy-efficient buildings featuring natural and recyclable materials achieve higher rents and sale prices.

Digital: Digital methods increase transparency and help to reduce costs. This starts with the digitization of the Technical Due Diligence that precedes every transaction. And continues with revitalization projects, where the BIM2FM approach ensures that data from planning and execution is available for use in building operation.

Innovative: The real estate market is also impacted by disruption. For this reason, high-yield portfolios bank on flexible, high-quality space that can quickly be adapted to changing needs. This applies particularly to second-tier properties – innovative leasing models such as Space as a Service concepts quickly put these in the spotlight.

Economic: High-yield portfolios have a stable Real Estate Management organization and efficient processes. Whether they are looking at operating or administration costs, the real estate managers rely on CAFM to identify potential at the press of a button.
