Campsites as an investment.

For a long time, camping had a niche existence in the public eye. Camping was considered a bit bourgeois and was seen as an uncomfortable way to spend a holiday on the fringes of society. Who voluntarily shares toilets and showers with people they don't know? Who prepares their own food on vacation, which is supposed to be a time for relaxation? But it is high time to give away prejudices and take a look behind the scenes of a billion-dollar industry that is closely…

Yield hunting in times of currency devaluation

Two-digit, now quite official: for October 2022, the inflation rate in the euro area was announced as 10.7% (previous year: 4.1%); a record! And in some areas and countries, the rate of inflation is still well above this average. Both the height and the dynamics are frightening. Should this development only stagnate, the euro will lose half of its current purchasing power within the next seven years.

Thoughts on hotel investments in the future (2).

In 2021 the Munich Oktoberfest was canceled for the second time in a row. This never happened for over 70 years. So far, the reasons have been wars and their consequences, the galloping inflation of the 1920s and cholera. Corona is a turning point of similar dimensions for social and economic life.

Thoughts about hotel investments in the future.

Do you know the feeling? You wake up and briefly have to consider what is currently going on in the world is just a bad dream. Yes, the human brain has a hard time nibbling on stunning developments before it gets used to new situations. When everything that was previously predictable and plannable loses its basis, it becomes difficult to judge what can still be relied upon. Who would have thought that at the end of 2019 it would be possible to…

From the glance in the crystal ball

"The art of prophecy ist difficult, especially with respect to the future." This true, very wise, but unfortunately not helpful quote is sometimes credited to Mark Twain, sometimes to cabaret artist Karl Valentin. And still we try to look into the future to plan ahead.

Megatrends and the hotel industry (2)

In the first part of our analysis for the 2020s, we questioned megatrends relevant to the hotel industry in the field of city hotels. The second part is about what is going on in tourism destinations. Since business travelers hardly play a role in holiday hotels, the situation is different. However, the trends mentioned in Part I also have an impact on product, service and financing.

Megatrends and the hotel industry.

Now they have arrived, the 1920s. It remains to be seen whether they will go wild like in the past century; and investors would be only too happy to take a look into the future in order to make proof decisions. But the future remains uncertain.

It cannot always be the end of the world!

It is quite understandable that changes to the unknown after a long stable phase without wars and catastrophes in Central Europe are unsettling people. This general discomfort is further compounded by media noise and the echo chambers of the internet. Yes, the world is changing.

Change of the investment climate in real estate.

The free market economy, in which suppliers and buyers agree on a price for a good, is probably one of the most important foundations of a democratically oriented society. Anyone who intervenes politically with regulations in this sensitive market structure should also be aware of the consequences and their responsibilities. This is the case with the rental price brake planned in Berlin and the property expropriations also discussed at the…

Yields and other Investment Criteria.

Some time ago, investments in securities have been valued after the annual return in the form of a dividend distribution. Today, where we can track price developments every second, it seems that the short-term price appreciation potential on the stock exchanges first and foremost counts. And this despite the fact that stock market gurus such as Warren Buffet attribute their success to longterm investments instead of quick profit-taking during price jumps.

Switzerland as a save location for hotel investments.

Actually, Switzerland is not a country but a brand; figuratively marked by the white Swiss cross on a red background as a trademark and by living values such as independence, bourgeoisie, direct democracy and willingness to compromise. Taking stock, these values have led to the most successful state of all time.

Spielball für Spekulanten oder sinnvolle Geldanlage? Bitcoins

Bitcoin: Match ball for speculators or sensible investment?

Actually, I wanted to write this article already 10 days ago. It’s good that the text is finished only now, since the reality obviously confirms my feeling about a phenomenon of the financial market. It is about the Bitcoin. Within three months its course value has trebled and then jumped back down to the starting position. This volatility brought the Bitcoin at the beginning of the year in the headlines and announced him to a broader group of people.

Since about half a year, HOTELINVEST offers with the new brand APARTINVEST hotel apartments with the concept buy-to-let as part ownership as a highly attractive investment possibility. So far APARTINVEST concentrated these hotel projects upon European top tourism destinations in the Alps or at the Mediterranean Sea or upon attractive metropolises in Germany and Austria. However, the conservative HOTELINVEST criteria do not lead to the fact that tourism locations beyond Europe with high potential…
