Buy a property or continue to pay rent?

For tenants, it may be worthwhile to finance his own four walls instead of renting it. Today’s low-interest rates are your chance. If you pay a net rent of € 1,000, you could get a loan of around € 250,000 under today’s loan terms. Your rent corresponds to a loan with a term of 20 years, 1.3% interest, and 3.5% repayment in total 4.8%. This means that for a property loan of € 250,000 you would pay € 1,000 a month in total. After 20 years, there will be a remaining debt of around € 50,000, which could be paid off in another 4-6 years with follow-up financing with similar conditions and rates. Therefore, become a property owner and secure your future instead of continuing to pay rent.

Fundamentals of solid Real Estate Financing

It is tempting to use the actually historically very low interest to finance expensive properties with little equity and a lot of credit, with low repayment and long loan terms. However, this approach involves risks. If a solid financing plan is drawn up, these risks can be easily identified.

  • Construction costs/purchase price of the desired object,
  • Own resources (equity, earnings, own work, etc.)
  • Expected additional costs (notary, land register and brokerage fees, real estate transfer tax, etc.)

You are on the safe side if you can pay the additional costs and part of the purchase costs of the property with your equity.

Low equity/down payment can become an obstacle. According to Stiftung Warentest (a non-profit German consumer organization), interest rates rise particularly high if the mortgage loan exceeds 80% of the value of the property. High equity reduces the interest rate, the term, the loan amount to be repaid and is a strong argument for the financial institutions when approving the loan application. If the customer has little equity, he must expect a correspondingly higher interest rate and the application may be processed slowly or may not be accepted.

Some financial institutes can provide 100% financing if the borrower’s creditworthiness is very high.

When building a house, the in-house services are often set too high or the expected renovation costs are set too low when buying an existing property. Notary and brokerage fees and real estate transfer tax underestimated.

The notary and land register costs amount to approx. 2% of the purchase price or construction costs. The brokerage fees and real estate transfer taxes vary locally. For example, in the Frankfurt area, the real estate transfer tax is 6% and the brokerage fee is 3,57% including VAT.

With longer credit periods, the interest and the monthly installments to be paid increase. At today’s historically very low-interest rates, it is worth choosing longer terms.

In times of low-interest rates, choosing an optimized repayment is particularly important. The repayment should be able to be adjusted during the term if necessary. Repayments that are too low lead to very long terms. High repayments increase the monthly instalment.

We advise you to get optimal and worry-free financing which you can afford.

Can I securely finance my desired property?

After checking your personal details and the data of your desired property, we can answer this question for you.

Do I need equity / down payment?

As a rule, yes. After checking your data, we are able to tell you what minimum equity you need and, if necessary, how to optimize financing costs with higher equity.

What additional costs can I expect?

The notary and land register costs amount to approx. 2% of the purchase price or construction costs. The brokerage fees and real estate transfer taxes vary locally. For example, in the Frankfurt area, the real estate transfer tax is 6% and the brokerage fee is 3,57% including VAT. Please use our additional cost calculator for the notary, land registry office, and real estate transfer tax above.

Which repayment amount should I choose?

To find the right repayment amount, we have to exchange ideas thoroughly. The general rule:

The less you repay, the lower the monthly instalments and the longer it takes for the loan to be paid off in full. The higher you can repay, the faster you pay off your loan and have lower interest costs.

What term should my loan have?

With historically low-interest rates, one can say that longer terms are safer and more recommendable. But certain boundary conditions, such as the expected maturity of a life insurance policy, can play a role in choosing the right term.

What is the Land Charge (Grundschuld)?

A mortgage or land charge is a guarantee for the lender who can be registered in the land registry. Normally, their amount corresponds to the loan amount from the lender.

What are debit interest and effective interest?

The debit interest rate is simply the interest rate that the borrower has to pay on his loan each year. If there are any additional costs (such as account maintenance or provision fees), the lender must indicate the effective annual interest rate, which also includes these additional costs.
