Why Do It Yourself If We Can Do It For You
How to find an apartment in Berlin (without getting crazy)
Have you ever tried to find an apartment in Berlin? Well, if you did, you surely know that it is not exactly the easiest, nor the most pleasurable, activity. It is enough to have a look at the expats communities forums to see that looking for a flat in Berlin can easily turn your life into a nightmare.
Berlin, once known for the cheap housing that’s attracted especially artists and other people from creative disciplines, is struggling to cover a demand that’s skyrocketed in the last years, pushed up by increasing migration to the city. Gentrification is a word you’ll hear often in Berlin, and whilst not everyone is happy about it, the city is quite clearly on the up-and-up.
How to deal with the need to find an apartment in a city as demanded as Berlin without getting crazy, desperate, or spending a real fortune for a one-room flat? There are several ways to go about it.
First of all, you can obviously go on the search on your own, invest days and weeks, probably even months, in scanning the advertisements, real-estate websites and writing hundreds of messages. From those hundreds of messages more or less 5% get an answer.
You try to get a viewing at the properties that were kind enough to write you back. You need to be available whenever they want because they are tons of people just like you. This is surely an option but you will lose a lot, a lot, a lot of time (and nerves, and health, and emotional well-being…). We would rather recommend you put those hours into work, cooking, watching Netflix or practicing yoga.
The second option is to let somebody else look for the ideal flat that would suit your needs. Somebody, but not anybody. It should be someone you trust, who understands your requirements and taste, and has an honest motivation to find the best possible option.

We just wanted you to know that you are not alone, and that searching for a flat in Berlin does not have to be a nightmare.
