If you are considering to purchase a property, but are still unsure of whether you should wait and save, there are a number of factors that you should take into account. Having a relatively high rent indicates that the sooner you buy the more you save. This is especially significant if property prices are rising quickly, under which circumstances it makes sense to buy sooner, unless you can save at a higher pace per month. The longer you stay in a property the more buying makes sense as the purchase fees are spread over more years, therefore in most cases, buying a property that you will be able to own in the long run is important. With inexpensive borrowing costs due to low interest rates, buying in Germany, currently, is very attractive.
