1. The Financing Check
The financing check is an upstream process in which the first key data are requested to clarify your financial feasibility. Once we have found out which framework you want and are able to invest in, which interest and repayment rates are possible for you, we will start looking for the property that suits you best.
Only when you have decided on one it makes sense to submit a property-related financing inquiry, which then forms the basis for a binding loan agreement. Now we can start to put together your tailor-made financing for you.

Interest rate development in recent years
The ECB key interest rate has been below the 2% mark for some time now. In the future, even long-term negative interest rates are predicted, according to promising statements by the new president of the ECB. This positive interest rate situation currently encourages borrowing by private customers and companies. In particular for installment and construction loans, the interest rate developments are extremely attractive, so that many are taking advantage of the moment and planning their investment projects. In the foreseeable future, investment should continue to be supported by a favorable interest rate policy.
We use the following checklist for your financing planning
Don't calculate the budget too tightMake a cash fall and calculate your monthly possible loan installment with generous flexibility. Take annual expenses and special cases into account.
Link your financing to your investmentTake into account the expected monthly rental income and any tax payments when financing your property. Your financial advisor will also always keep an eye on your investment strategy and align the investment with it.
Let favorable interest rates be fixed for long-term periodsEven if forecasts rule out a foreseeable increase in interest rates, it makes sense to fix interest rates over the long term in periods of low interest rates. A minimum of 10 years is recommended.
Repayment rate changeWith most lenders it is also possible to contractually agree a (multiple) change of repayment rate. This gives you the flexibility to adjust your monthly repayment rate to any changes in your income tax situation.
Structure your financing with a promising futureInclude financing in your life planning. Think about when you want to be debt-free, what special payments might be due and what private and professional changes you need to take into account. You should arrange your financing in such a way that it still fits in well with your lifestyle in the future.
Securities bring interest advantagesThink about how much of your equity capital you would like to bring in. Many lenders offer better interest rates for a higher use of equity. Existing properties can also serve as collateral for financing partners.
Look out for special repayment optionsMost credit institutions now allow free special repayments. With these unscheduled repayments, you can quickly reduce your remaining debt, which also has a positive effect on the interest rate.
The most frequent questions and answers
What are the decisive components for my credit line?
First and foremost, securities such as creditworthiness and Schufa data are required. Your Schufa data provide the lender with information about your solvency and payment morale, as well as existing financial expenses. In addition, information about your assets and income is required in order to estimate the realization of your monthly repayment. How high your monthly income is, how secure your job is and which assets you own influence the credit decision.
Is it also possible to get a loan without Schufa information?
Many banks refuse a credit inquiry due to negative creditworthiness. Nevertheless, some financing service providers offer a payout. However, the requirement for this is a high degree of transparency on your part in the form of a precise breakdown of your finances. Often the providers allow themselves to be paid the increased risk in the form of high interest rates.
How much equity capital do I need to take out a loan?
The more equity you have in your financing, the lower the interest rate on your loan. However, the well-known rule that one third of the financing should be equity is outdated. Rather, your future income situation is decisive for your ability to perform and the decision whether you can carry your monthly loan installments over the next few years.
