Moving To Munich
Are you planning on moving to Munich? It’s one of Germany’s most prosperous cities and attracts professionals seeking an exceptional quality of life and first class living standards. It boasts the lowest unemployment rates in Germany and is home to some of the highest income earners.
The city has many stylish shops, beer halls and exceptional restaurants. The cost of living here is high, having overtaken Frankfurt and Berlin and as the most expensive city in Germany. It would be prudent for expats to factor in the cost of health insurance, which is compulsory throughout Germany.
Property prices if you are thinking of moving to Munich
It is rare for expats to spend more than five years in any given location, which means it often makes sense to rent accommodation rather than to buy. However, if you do decide to settle there and to purchase a property, you will need to show proof of income and the ability to repay a loan.
Real estate companies have a selection of properties for sale such as: www.leadingproperties.com/real-estate-sale-germany/
