Real estate financing

From condos, to houses, to apartment buildings, the sums of investment jump.

The higher the purchase price, the more important the planning of the financing. Do you want to fulfil your dream of owning your own home, a condominium, a building plot or a commercial property? Then the right choice of real estate loan determines how high the interest burden and thus the total cost of your real estate loan will be.

Even when selecting a real estate loan, you as a potential buyer are faced with many questions and considerations as to whether, for example, you should choose a classic annuity financing or opt for another form of financing. Follow-up financing is also possible in various ways. Ultimately, you are faced with the question of whether you are better off with a long and fixed debit interest rate or with a flexible real estate loan.
