New Apartments for Sale in Berlin
Berlin is a city that’s buzzing with hype and activity. There’s an incredible arts and sports culture, great healthcare and transport links, heavy investment in education, and the entire city is like a giant sociable melting pot. The housing market in Berlin has grown more slowly than rival European capitals and the result is that you can always find apartments for sale in Berlin which are cheaper, but no less well-made or well-situated, than other countries.
True to the stereotypes, new Berlin apartments are built to last with German precision and quality evident in every crevice. If you’re looking for a new spot in this diverse and rapidly-growing city, then let us show you what’s available.

Where to move: the different boroughs of Berlin
Before diving into specific apartments and their amenities, let’s take a birds-eye view of Berlin and examine its distinct boroughs and districts. With nearly 4 million people spread over 891.1 km2, Berlin is split into almost ‘mini-cities’, each with its own distinct style, population, and culture.
Here’s a quick look at the most popular neighborhoods.
* Mitte - If you want to be right in the beating heart of Berlin, then you have to consider Mitte. Occupying the west of the city, it’s jammed full of historical significance, luxury shopping, and great entertainment.
* Wilmersdorf - Wilmersdorf is a must-visit for executives, successful entrepreneurs, and anyone who enjoys living in a dynamic and energetic neighborhood. You’ll have your fill of awesome entertainment and dining options, as well as calm parks and beautiful buildings.
* Prenzlauer Berg - A fully gentrified neighborhood, this district is beloved of young adults and families. If you’re looking for cheap apartments for sale in Berlin, whose value is only trending upwards, then consider Prenzlauer Berg.
* Charlottenburg - Charlottenburg is arguably the most attractive and immersive neighborhood in the entire city. There’s a perfect balance of entertainment (such as restaurants and theatres) as well as stunning scenery.
* Friedrichshain - Situated in former East Berlin, Friedrichshain is the definition of hipster and creative culture. It’s an up-and-coming area which means apartments are only increasing in value. Perfect for nightlife, street artistry, and all sorts of non-traditional living.
* Kreuzberg - If you’re in it for the Berlin nightlife (and we know many Berliners are) then Kreuzberg might be the best possible location for you. The area is also full of charm during the day: there are historical attractions, incredible restaurants, and lush green parks.
The truth is that every area of Berlin has its own culture and story. You can choose to be near certain amenities, such as public transport or the office, but wherever you end up in the city you’re set for a wonderful time.
The real estate market and investing in Berlin
Buying an apartment is about securing your future as much as your present. The real estate market in Berlin has been trending upwards for several years now, but is still far from its peak. Thanks to the relatively late reuniting of Berlin, things here have grown more slowly than other major European capitals.
New apartments are being erected all the time which are incredibly well-built and situated in great locations. However, because of the housing market’s slow rise, they are super affordable—and their worth is only increasing. Thanks to the steady wage rises, low unemployment, and high investment in education, the quality of living in Berlin has remained consistently high. There really is no better time to invest in Berlin property than right now!
