With our support, you can see what issues are important on your way to buying your own home. The sooner you clarify this, the sooner you will be able to turn your wish into reali-ty.

Important questions relating to your wish to own your own home 

There are many details that need to be clarified to make your dream of owning a property come true. The following considerations can help you to gain a concrete overview of your options and your starting situation:

  • Location: the region, the length of your commute and the environment (rural or urban)
  • Rooms: the desired number of rooms and furnishings for your dream home
  • Public transport/motorway: the importance of good public transport or motorway access
  • Purchase price: the maximum costs possible for your home
  • Finances: your financial situation and opportunities for optimising or improving it as well as your financing options

What you can afford – a simple explanation

How high the purchase price of your dream home can be depends on the amount of your income and equity capital, i.e. the assets you have accumulated. If you earn more and have more equity, the purchase price of
your home may be correspondingly higher. With our practical online calculator, you can find out quickly and easily how much your home should at the most cost. Simply enter your gross income and assets and you'll see a result.

Save up for your own home

If the equity you have accumulated is not sufficient to buy your dream home, there are a number of
ways in which you can accumulate your assets:

  • Tax-privileged saving 
  • Voluntary contributions to the 2nd pillar
  • Various investment solutions such as fund savings accounts

Finance your own home

If you have already saved enough equity for your dream property, the next step is to optimise the financing to purchase it. Home ownership financing always consists of:

  • Equity
  • Debt capital
