Any suggestions and ideas? There seem to be less properties of sale during the pandemic, it was already difficult to look for interesting properties in Germany, but now people seem even more reluctant to sell...
What do you think will happen with land/house/farm price in Germany and Europe during and after Corona times? Are there other countries in Europe where one ought to look for land?
For organic veg and fruits, maybe some animals,  land restoration, sustainable building, (etc) and preferably together with other permies, or in the same area/neighbourhood.

Just to the north (Denmark) property prices have not changed, at least not in this area, Holiday homes have apparently become more popular but that isn't reflected in the statistics I can find. There was a slowdown on sales in April/May but since then it's all gone back to normal. I don't think it's going to have any effect whatsoever here, we didn't have any lock-downs per se so no-one is desperately looking for a garden or to get out of cities like they are in some places.

Estate agents are busy in France. Many wealthy people in the cities are looking for a secondary home. So much so that the government has decided to raise the tax on secondary homes.

Concerning the house price change since 10 years in Europe, Germany is high up on the list, while countries like Italy, Spain etc are on the minus side:

my area of france, the haute-vienne hasn't change.
Still possible to find house, barn and a hectare for 100k plus or minus 50k depending on location and condition.
Hard to find anything over 1 Hectare though, unless you buy a farm and that's 3-400 000 plus. And you have to deal with Safer

 
Or we might never have existed at all. Freaky. So we should cherish everything. Even this tiny ad:
