Is property a thing, a string of norms, a constraint, a bundle of rights, a regime, or a relation? Building on the many social functions of property, we explore the rural, regional dimension to the land question in Germany via a mixed-methods study on infill development potential in three Bavarian villages. The 2020-2023 study, funded by the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Arts, surveyed property owners and town councils in transdisciplinary cooperation with the local governments. Roughly 600 property owners and town council members in these three study villages answered the survey questionnaire, offering their perspectives on land use, vacant space, and infill redevelopment dilemmas in their villages.
