Berlin’s residential property and apartment markets are still growing and demand in the housing market is going up with it

The new development boom continues and has even moved markedly upwards. Foreign investors might consider a vacant apartment to partly self-use or to rent out furnished. Thus keeping the apartment vacant long term while generating higher profit from the temporary lease. Tenanted apartments are often substantially cheaper. Only, self-use termination according to German legislation will often turn out to be time consuming and sometimes tricky.

Shall your apartment be available to live in immediately, then purchasing a vacant apartment is the way to go.

For owner-occupiers, installments paid on a long-term mortgage at times can turn out to be lower than rents payable for a comparable apartment.
