Finding an apartment in Dresden
The housing situation in Dresden is moderate because of its resources and the constant modernization. German and international companies, their branches and research institutions as well as start-ups make for new jobs. This wealth has the consequence that renting prices are rising more than average and landlords can pick their tenants randomly, because demand often exceeds the offer.
But Dresden offers a broad price range and generally, rents are below the average of other big German cities. In the popular districts like Altstadt or the more alternative Neustadt it can still be quite difficult to find a suitable housing option. The same goes for calmer districts like Striesen or other lively areas of Dresden’s inner city. When one then is not fluent in German it can feel close to impossible to come out on top of competitors.
Thanks to our know-how it is feasible though. With a little patience, flexibility, and good planning we always find a suitable apartment for our customers!
Currently landlords consider one third of your income as a maximum rent payment. A positive SCHUFA-entry as well as a declaration of no rental debts are essential for their commitment.
