Finding an apartment in Nuremberg
Nuremberg cannot expand. Rivers and woods do not allow any growth of the city. This has consequences for the housing market. Too few apartments are built and thus the 500,000 inhabitants plus all the people moving there face a shortage of living space. Real estate in the Altstadt and Nordstadt the demand always exceeds the offer. When ones German isn’t fluent it is quite a big challenge to succeed.
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!
Nuremberg has many districts with very different price categories. 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.
