In the preparatory phase of your moving to Bonn you have probably been considering buying real estate, your own home or apartment. A local real estate agent, as well as banks and savings banks, can give you a good overview of properties for sale. In addition, the daily newspapers contain many classified advertisements offering housing for rent and sale. Houses or apartments can be bought by foreigners without any restrictions.
You can obtain information about property values and rental costs from the real estate appraiser's committee (Gutachterausschuss für Grundstückswerte) of the Office for Geoinformation and Soil Management (Amt für Geoinformation und Bodenmanagement) of the City of Bonn.
