German Property Terminology and Abbriviations - Glossary and English Translation


If you are at Rome live in the Roman style; if you are elsewhere live as they live elsewhere. [Lat., Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more; Si fueris alibi, vivito sicut ibi.]
Author: Saint Ambrose
It is our policy that we provide information as much as we can in the English language. However our clients will obtain information and property offers from other sources. To help them to understand the main parts of that information we have provided a German-English Property Glossary which also includes abbreviations commonly used in German property ads and rental ads.

The following list is a short example, the full list has over 100 items. Getting the free German English Property Glossary will be a useful action for those that have already invested in Germany property and even more for those planning to make this exciting move. You will find the access to the complete German English Property Glossary on our website. All you need is register to get your copy by e-mail. Also staying registered will give you the benefit of getting updates.
