Finding a Flat in Berlin
Help! I need a place and can’t speak German!
The real-estate market in Berlin is very competitive and you need every edge you can get to find – and ‘win’ – your dream apartment, WG or office space. Expath can help!
Our Finding a Flat in Berlin workshops are led by our professional real estate coach. We’ll answer your questions about how to find and rent or buy your dream apartment, including:
• How can I use German-language websites if I don’t speak German?
• How much should I be paying? How do I know I’m not being cheated?
• What red flags should I watch out for with the lease or landlord?
• What’s the best/cheapest neighborhood for my lifestyle?
• What financial or legal requirements or documents will I need to show?
• How can I impress the landlord if I can’t prove I have a regular income?
• Where else can I find a WG besides wg-gesucht.de?
• How can I find the cheapest place as fast as possible?
• How can I find roommates to start up my own WG?
• Where else should I look besides Neukolln and Kreuzberg?
• What questions should I be sure to ask my roommates?
You’ll come away with a resource list of the best sites for apartment-hunting in German and English, as well as practical information about the real-estate market in Berlin that will help you save time and money and avoid mistakes.
This workshop is currently being offered on-demand – contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request more information! It is also available to stream online (packaged together with the “Getting Started” workshop) here.
