Home buying in Cologne

How can I find my dream home?

“Location, location, location” is one of the most important rules when buying a home in Cologne. Location has a direct influence on the value of a property. Lower priced, medium-range and more desirable (Classes A, B and C) locations are usually differentiated – but what makes a desirable location in Cologne? The selection criteria depend significantly on who is buying the home. But there are certainly location criteria which always apply. These include good transport connections to the center of Cologne and comprehensive infrastructure with schools, kindergartens and supermarkets.
