This is excellent advice, thanks so much for sharing Kumabear!

Can I ask, how'd you go with all the paperwork requirements? It seems like you need an entire dossier of documentation to even apply! I was thinking I'd have to ask someone from my company to translate a cover letter into German for me, then I'd need to provide a credit report from my home country as I won't have anything for the debt collection thingie that you need... and did you just find your place on one of the big websites (immoscout / comparis / homegate) or did you register with local real estate agents?

Sorry for all the questions!
The paperwork was quite heavy and it is in German. I was about cautious at first so I made sure to google translate it and read it through. (I found my place on one of the big websites by the way.) He did also request a character assessment and my employee contract as verification.
