Disclaimer: We are not a real estate agency and are not responsible for the renting of apartments ourselves. We are relocation coaches, who help you to apply for apartments in Berlin through information and interpretation.
The search for a flat in Berlin is notoriously competitive. Before you get started there are a few general requirements for anyone starting their search.
If you are a new resident, without a residency permit, or without at least 3 months of pay checks or a minimum of 6 months of freelance income, we recommend you first need a temporary furnished apartment. For the long-term unfurnished flat search, all landlords require a proof of income in Germany. This is possible for employees, freelancers and the self employed, but the latter two will need a statement of income from a German tax advisor showing their earnings for the year so far, as well as previous tax returns.
The "unwritten rule" for a long-term apartment is that your household income after tax (net income) is greater than or equal to 3 x the warm rent of the apartment.
We can guide you through the process of finding both a short term and long term apartment in Berlin, but please bear the above criteria in mind.

Our relocation coaches have a great understanding of the Berlin housing market. We know how to communicate with Berlin estate agents, help you schedule viewings and support you through the process until you find the flat of your dreams.
