Types of rental housing in Germany

If you are moving to Germany, we recommend renting a short-term apartment or Airbnb or hotel room for the first couple of months and looking for a long-term apartment locally.
1
Short-term apartment rentals
  • It is possible to rent remotely, even before you move to Germany
  • The apartment is furnished
  • Requires a deposit (1-2 rents)
  • Doesn't always require signing a rental agreement
  • Usually more expensive than apartments for long-term rentals
  • Fewer applicants for this type of housing - many options available
2
Long-term apartment rentals
  • You can't rent remotely, you have to visit the apartment in person
  • The apartment is rented without furniture (sometimes without a kitchen)
  • Requires a deposit (2-3 rents)
  • Requires signing a rental agreement
  • Cheaper than short-term rentals
  • The search can take several months

Difficulties of searching and renting in Germany

01

High demand

In large cities, great deals get dozens of inquiries in the first hours after publication
02

Communication with the landlord

It is better to use German when communicating and not to make mistakes
03

Search process duration

Because of high demand, you may not be invited to viewings. And even if you are, there is no guarantee that the landlord will choose you. Landlords are also interested in how many people will be living in the property, income level, proof of credit, etc.
04

Confirmation of solvency

The landlord will need documents about where you work and how much you earn, as well as proof of an impeccable credit history
05

Nuances in the rental agreement

Each rental agreement is different, including details of what you can and cannot do in the apartment, how far in advance you need to warn the landlords about moving out, etc.
06

Scammers in the housing market

Scammers on the German housing market are now as numerous as ever
