Financing a property: It has to fit

Geld, Grundrisse und Taschenrechner

Especially since the real estate market has changed significantly and the key interest rate has been raised several times, it is important to get detailed advice from experts on real estate financing. The conditions for repayment and redemption must be adapted to individual possibilities and planned with foresight so that you do not run the risk of having to sell the property again after a while because the financing becomes unaffordable.

What is the current interest rate? Is a high repayment rate an advantage? Does a long repayment phase or a short one make sense? How high should the monthly income be? Is the Schufa score sufficient for a loan? You also need to think about the duration of the fixed-interest period: How high will the interest rates be in 10, 15 or 20 years? Should you already be thinking about follow-up financing? Will you still be able to service the loan installment or will a sale be unavoidable?

The purchase price of your own property, including the ancillary purchase costs, must be affordable - thanks to the available equity and the monthly repayments. Furthermore, some financial leeway for unforeseen situations and any additional purchases should also be taken into account. Financing with very little equity is usually only possible with a very high income. You should also bear in mind that many banks now require more equity, sometimes between 20-30 percent, due to the rise in interest rates.

Frequently asked questions about real estate financing

What is the best way to finance a property?

The best way to finance the purchase of a property is through a combination of equity and a real estate loan. If you are buying a property as an investment, you can also service the loan using the rental income.

Can you buy a property without equity?

Buying a property without equity is only possible in individual cases - namely if the buyer has a very good credit rating and can prove a high, stable income. Many credit institutions refrain from granting loans without equity at all.

How much equity do I need to finance a property?

An equity ratio of 10 to 30 percent is recommended. The usual requirement of banks is 15 percent for first-time buyers. As a general rule, the higher the equity ratio, the lower the loan amount required - so the loan is paid off more quickly. The loan conditions are also usually more attractive with high equity.

How high should the monthly financing installment be?

As a rule of thumb, buyers should not have to pay more than 40 percent of their net income each month for financing installments. There should be enough money left over to maintain the standard of living to which you are accustomed and to build up a financial cushion for repairs.

How long does the financing for my property run for?

A real estate loan can have a term of up to 30 years. It varies depending on the equity share, loan amount and chosen repayment installment. There are also differences from provider to provider with regard to the maximum possible loan term.

How long does it take for my financing to be approved by the bank?

Provided the bank has all the necessary documents, the loan is usually approved within one to two weeks. Depending on the provider, however, processing may take longer.

What costs are incurred when buying a house?

When buying a house, you don't just have to pay the purchase price plus interest. There are also incidental purchase costs - in addition to the land transfer tax (6 percent of the purchase price), these are the notary fees (1.5 percent) and the costs for the land register entry (0.5 percent).

What is a land charge?

A land charge is a mortgage. It is used to secure the real estate loan: If the borrower no longer meets his payment obligations to the bank, the bank may seize the property. The land charge is entered in the land register and can either be deleted after the loan has been repaid or used as security for another loan.
