Thank you for 2022!We would like to thank all our clients, business partners and colleagues for the positive and enjoyable collaboration this year. The IZ Research team strives every day to ensure that you always receive the usual high quality at IZ Research that you have come to expect from the Immobilien Zeitung. We bundle our comprehensive know-how and continuously update our data content. This year we also rolled out several releases to IZ Research, including the addition of the “News” and “Players” applications. An overview of our product enhancements in 2022 can be found in the following post.
Product Enhancements in 2022
New feature “News”
The “News” application gives you full access to the IZ Research news & source archive and allows you to read news on the properties, transactions, cities and players available in IZ Research as well as on search terms you have selected yourself. At the same time, you can individualise your search query and, thanks to our “Follow” function, you will be informed of news directly by email. You can find out more about this further development here.
New feature “Players”
Our “Players” application supports you in searching for specific companies, institutions and individuals with a focus on their spatial focus (geo-search), the type of use of the properties and their role in the market or industry. Find out more about this in the blog post “Our new players on IZ Research”.
New visual display of the “office submarkets” on the property details pageThe visual display of “submarkets” on the property details page in the “Properties” application, makes it possible to show the most important published and submarket-related key figures in the context of a property that is being searched for – initially for the office category in the 7 A-cities as well as in 14 other cities throughout Germany.

Expanded data content on industry & logistics in the “Cities” applicationWe have expanded the market and structural data in the “Cities” application to include the Industry & Logistics asset class.
Switching our maps to OpenStreetMapIn the course of the summer release, we switched our maps to OpenStreetMap. This provides significantly better performance and more map-based analysis options.
Yield map for higher transparency in the (sub-)market locationsThe new yield map enables the representation of (sub-)market locations of a city which are likely to have similar yield values for the real estate types of office, residential as well as logistics. You can read more about this further development in this blog post.
Keyword search in “Transactions” and “Properties” as a new filter elementThe new keyword search in the “Properties” application can be used to specifically search for certain properties (e.g. student housing or childcare centres).
Office employment rate as an indicator of potential office space requirements
The office employment rate – an important indicator for describing the local demand for office space – indicates what percentage of employees subject to social insurance contributions at their place of work use an office for their professional activities. This makes it possible to derive the number of office jobs needed and, from this, the demand for office space in the respective city. In IZ Research’s “Cities” application, we currently provide the office employment rates for 127 cities and district towns. Find out more.
Worldwide search for transactions and properties in the maps
Using the “Transactions” and “Properties” applications on IZ Research, you can also expand your spatial search outside Germany. For example, you can display known and recorded properties throughout Europe or the transaction activity recorded in IZ Research in North America.
