Rent cover: Berlin fails with a message

you are always smarter Afterwards, so it is often called. In the fall of the Berlin this is not true. As you could have already be smart. Of course experts are forecasts not always correct, you can also learn later, the have shown countless crises, from the financial crisis up to Corona. In this case, however, the forecasts of the Economists look pretty reliable.

What would happen if in a boom city like Berlin, the Rents would be capped? The answers were many and varied – but they were always on one thing: For most people, the housing search is more difficult.

However, the opposite is the case: While the number of apartments offered, depending on the count has almost halved, the number of inquiries per listing, within the year more than tripled.

to find A place to play is under such circumstances, to happiness. It is a matter of time until it is clear that some landlords are, under such circumstances, even picky: you are looking for financially sound tenants with secure jobs, which might look similar to you, and may not be so much for families with small children, the unrest in the house can bring.
