Early contact to a broker
Especially in the larger German cities the demand for properties to buy is extremely high. Therefore, many of them change owner even before they are made publicly available for sale. If you do not want to miss the best offers, you should contact a broker as early as possible once you decided to buy a property. Thereby, you can not only gain an overview over the current state of the real estate market right from the beginning, but also receive guidance from an expert throughout the entire buying process. Whether you want to employ a broker for your search is, however, an individual decision.
