German flat hunt made easy
Are you dreaming of sipping coffee in a charming Berlin café, hiking through the Bavarian Alps, or immersing yourself in the vibrant culture of Cologne? Germany is a land of dreams, but when it comes to finding that perfect flat, the reality can be a little harsher.
The Great Flat Frenzy
Germany, the land of poets and thinkers, is experiencing a shortage of flats for rent in its bustling cities. The demand is sky-high, and competition is fierce. In big cities like Berlin, Cologne, or Hamburg, there can be hundreds of applicants for one flat, and the search can take months. The search for your new German home can sometimes feel like a quest for the Holy Grail, especially if you’re a foreigner or currently residing outside Germany. Most landlords prefer to meet in person before choosing their future tenants.
Why is this happening?
According to experts, we would need to build 400.00 new flats per year – a big number that’s not currently being translated into reality. Investment policies have changed, and big parts of public housing have been bought by big investors who are renovating and modernizing the flats but also driving up the rents. Many private investors exclusively rent out their apartments to tourists for even higher prices. Since the pandemic, building materials have become increasingly expensive or even hard to come by. Building in accordance with many of the new climate standards also makes it a more costly enterprise.
The online journey is no less of an adventure. From the labyrinth of websites to the never-ending forms and applications, getting lost in the digital jungle is easy. And just when you think you’ve found ‘the one,’ the price tag gives you pause. It’s no secret that the cost of renting in Germany’s major cities can be eye-wateringly high.
Lost in Translation
Picture this: You’re scrolling through online platforms, trying to decipher German property listings. The struggle to get in touch with realtors leaves you feeling trapped in a maze. Many landlords are afraid of complications if you don’t yet speak the language and won’t even reply to requests in English or faulty attempts in German. It’s not just about finding a flat; it’s about overcoming language barriers and navigating the intricacies of the German housing market.
