American buying apt in Berlin
April 30, 2007 8:40 AM   Subscribe

I am an American interested in buying property in Berlin. Do any other Americans with experience in this have any advice to offer?

I am particularly interested in finding an English-speaking agent or lawyer based in Berlin who could help me in dealings with German-speaking real estate agents, notaries, etc. and would appreciate any recommendations. I am also looking for information on tax implications for Americans buying property in Germany. TIA!

I can give just one piece of advice - do not buy around the city! Buy IN the city. Parts of Berlin are dying, parts are being rebuilt. So be very very careful. And remember, Germans live in flats, not houses.
