Abstract

Das Mietniveau zwischen Westdeutschland und Ostdeutschland unterscheidet sich im Durchschnitt um weniger als einen Euro pro Quadratmeter. Dieser geringe Unterschied ist angesichts der wirtschaftlichen Schwäche und der hohen Leerstandsrate in Ostdeutschland erklärungsbedürftig. An einem Sample deutscher Kommunen wird mit einem hedonischen Regressionsmodell der Einfluss lokaler Ausstattungsmerkmale auf die Mietpreise verschiedener Marktsegmente untersucht. Als erklärende Variablen werden demografische, wohnungsmarktbezogene und ökonomischraumstrukturelle Merkmale verwendet. Dabei werden im Modell Thesen über höhere Mietpreise berücksichtigt, die im Zusammenhang mit der transformationsbedingten Anpassung des ostdeutschen Wohnungsmarktes in den 1990er Jahren zu sehen sind. Ein zentrales Modellergebnis ist der Hinweis darauf, dass die Bestandssegmente in Ostdeutschland relativ zur Lebensqualität der Stadt überhöhte Mietniveaus aufweisen. Eine genauere Untersuchung der Gründe für diesen Mietpreisaufschlag ist wünschenswert, da weitere Abwanderung aus Ostdeutschland die regionalwirtschaftliche Folge einer zu hohen Miete sein könnte.
