Fertighausproduzenten gehen mit Online-Anfragen sorglos um

Die immer wichtigere Rolle des Online-Services im Kundenkontakt hat Interconnection Consulting zum Anlass genommen die 34 marktanteilsstärksten Fertighaushersteller in Deutschland in ihrem Umgang mit Online-Anfragen zu untersuchen. Das ernüchternde Ergebnis: Im Vergleich zum Vorjahr verschlechterte sich die Reaktion der Hersteller auf die E-Mail-Anfrage gar um 1,8%, wie der Mystery-Shopping-Test zeigt.

Online wird oft stiefmütterlich behandelt

Das Potential des Internets zur Lead-Generierung wird von den Unternehmen bei Weitem nicht vollständig ausgeschöpft. Weniger als zwei Drittel (61,4%) der kontaktierten Hersteller reagierten beim ersten Online Kontakt auf die gestellte Anfrage. Nach einem Erinnerungsmail und einer telefonischen Kontaktaufnahme erhöhte sich der Anteil der antwortenden Hersteller auf 85,3%. Ein nicht zu vernachlässigender Anteil von 14,7% antwortet also gar nicht auf die dezidierten Kundenanfragen. Nur fünf der untersuchten Hersteller reagieren auf die Anfrage prompt bzw. innerhalb eines Tages (Bien Zenker, Streif, Luxhaus, Dennert, Fischer).

Aus den Augen aus dem Sinn

Insgesamt weisen die Hersteller sehr unterschiedliches Verhalten bezüglich ihres Online-Verhaltens auf. Knapp ein Drittel (29,5%) beantwortet die vier dezidierten Kundenanfragen über Garantie, Bauvorschriften, Finanzierung und Energie überhaupt nicht. Im Vorjahr lag dieser Prozentsatz noch deutlich niedriger (8,2%). Ein Drittel (31,1%) nimmt sich die Zeit alle Fragen ausführlich zu beantworten. Zusätzlich versuchen 37,7% die Interessenten mit weiteren Informationen zum Angebot in elektronischer Form zu überzeugen. Jedoch gilt für alle Produzenten nach dem Senden der Materialien einheitlich: „Aus den Augen, aus dem Sinn“. Kein einziger Hersteller, der Informationen per Post oder elektronisch zugesendet hat, erkundigte sich ein wenig später, ob es weiterhin Interesse am Angebot gäbe. „Durch die fast sorglose Bearbeitung der Anfragen gehen viele Interessenten verloren“, erklärt Viorica-Maria Jeler, Autorin der Studie. Insgesamt stellt die Studie fest, dass die Seriosität der Anfrage auch anhand der vermuteten Kundenherkunft – ob Migrationshintergrund oder nicht – bewertet wird, erklärt Jeler.

Verknüpfung mit Offline-Welt

Der Online-Kontakt wird von den Unternehmen genutzt um eine Verknüpfung zur Offline-Welt zu erstellen. Um ein Geschäft zum Abschluss zu bringen, wählen die Hersteller verschiedene Vorgangsweisen. Zwei Drittel (62,7%) schlagen ein persönliches Treffen vor, mehr als ein Drittel (27,1%) möchte ein telefonisches Gespräch führen und 10,2% geben sich mit der schriftlichen Kontaktaufnahme zufrieden.
Interconnection hat die 34 marktanteilstärksten Fertighaushersteller in Deutschland in der Studie getestet. Dazu wurden die Hersteller mit einem konkreten Anliegen zu einem Projekt kontaktiert und das Antwortverhalten analysiert.

The prefabricated house industry in Germany is reaching new hights

In Germany, the prefabricated house market is booming. The sales volume increased by 7.2% last year. This is not due to the general boom in the construction industry alone, but also due to the increasing market share of prefabricated housing solutions in residential construction. The proportion is now 20.4% and is thus higher than ever, as a new study by Interconnection Consulting shows.

The construction of new one- and two-family houses in Germany in 2017 is at a record level. It is expected that the prefabricated house industry will follow the general construction industry for the next few years, resulting in a stable quota of prefabricated houses between 20.0% and 21.0%. However, despite favorable housing loans and positive development in the labor market, the strongest wave of investors who prefer investing in concrete rather than material assets, seems to be already over, Neva Rukonic, author of the study observes.

Average prices are rising slightly

With the general upturn in the construction industry and rising average prices, the turnover of the prefabricated house sector is increasing by 8.3%. The high demand for turnkey or prefabricated houses as well as energy-efficient buildings, which have become standard in the prefabricated house industry, continues to fuel this price trend. In 2017, the price increased by 1.0% compared to the previous year. In the next few years, a further price increase of about 1.0 to 2.5% is expected.

Terraced houses are losing ground

Paved and turnkey homes are developing much better in 2017 than prefabricated homes. The proportion of ready-to-use houses remained stable at 38.7%. Turnkey houses reached a share of 36.0% in 2017. Only around a quarter of all buildings (25.3%) will be handed over to be upgraded – and the trend is falling. The rising number of building permits in recent years is also reflected in the German prefabricated house market. Two-family houses and multi-storey residential units have performed significantly better than terraced houses. The high demand for individuality means that terraced houses only achieved a below-average growth of 4.7% last year. Overall, however, single-family homes dominate with a market share of 83.2% and disproportionate growth.

Growing market concentration

The market concentration of the top 10 players continued to increase in 2017, reaching 37.1%. A dominant position in the German prefabricated house market is occupied by the group Deutsche Fertighaus Holding, which again achieved a market share growth of 5.8% with its brands “Mass”, “Okal” and “Allkauf”. The fourth brand – the massive house sales line “Ice Stone House” – was discontinued in 2017 after two stagnant years.
