      What's that thing they used to say about the three stages of gentrification? First the artists move in because nobody else wants to. Then the teachers move in because it's affordable. Then the bankers move in and kill the vibe. Same as it ever was. Add Airb'n'b into the mix and Berlin's bohemian heart is sadly doomed, despite the best intentions of the city's local government.

      The private rented sector has flourished since c. 2002.

      Savings rates crashed in 2008/09.

      The easing of buy to let lending, with millions especially in southern England having significant equity on their main home to use as the deposit, got the ball rolling for the lucky savvy. Almost like printing money for the millions who bought a BTL or two in the heady days of huge house price rises.
      Your graph does tend to show a marked increase in the BTL market from 2008 as I indicated. Thanks for the information.

      With negative bund yields at the moment I canít see why Germany doesnít borrow and build some houses!

      The rent freeze is great in principle but itís driven by the housing shortage. Rents will inevitably go up again unless new supply is added as there will be no incentives for landlords to invest....

      Why should someone be forced out of the area they grew up in so it can become the preserve of the wealthy ?

      Only enforces my point about folk being shafted.
      You must be either a Leftie, a member of generation rent or both.

      I totally agree with @Brighton Lines. I am a leftie. As already stated, I have a mortgage.

      Next!

      Sure is. It is a lovely place. Great great beers, nice staff, nice punters and quality pizzas. We are getting an Omnipollo in Hamburg shortly; I’ll be making a trip there for sure.

      Why mess with a free market economy?
      Congratulations. In answer to your question, you don't have to, or you can offer your citizens the chance to live well, and limit the impact of those who live off the extraction of rent.
