I would like to buy an apartment in Germany, and I live on the blue card.

How can I do it? If not possible now, when will it be? What is the procedure?

    "How can I do it?": I would start by talking to a real estate agent (Immobilienmakler?). They probably know the answers to all of these questions.

  • It's possible and you follow the same procedure as anyone else, including German citizens. There are no legal restrictions. If you don't speak German you need a translator, that's about it.

    You will have difficulty getting a loan if you don't have a permanent residence permit (Niederlassungserlaubnis).

  • Except the difficulty to get a loan from the bank if you need it, buying an apartment has nothing to do with Blue Card. AFAIK, to buy an apartment in Germany, you are even not required to be in Germany or have a German visa or residence permit. So what is your question then? Jul 27, 2017 at 12:18
  • No question, I have no interest in buying an apartment in Germany anymore, and I did not see any issue in getting a loan, that was quite easy Jul 28, 2017 at 8:22
