VIENNA Aug 26 Austrian property group
Immofinanz bought 1,190 apartments in Kassel for 46
million euros ($62 million), its third major acquisition in
Germany this year.
Immofinanz is increasing the size of its German portfolio to
add to its Buwog unit, which it hopes to list next year, and is
selling Austrian properties outside Vienna.
The company said on Monday current rental revenues from the
properties in Kassel - a town of 200,000 north of Frankfurt am
Main with high-speed rail links - were 4 million euros per year,
and the vacancy rate was just 2.5 percent.
