Properties for Sale and Rent in Heidelberg

Heidelberg is popular as a place to live and work – and that inevitably has an impact on the housing market. Although land prices and rents are lower than in major cities like Stuttgart or Munich, in many of the city’s districts they are above the average for the surrounding region. The city authorities have introduced a family-friendly housing policy to make sure that people – especially families – can afford to live in Heidelberg.

Subsidies are available for rented accommodation and owner-occupied housing, as are family-friendly apartments in the new Bahnstadt district. When the former US Army areas are being developed, priority is also given to the development of low-cost housing. And 2013 saw the launch of a special alliance for affordable housing.

The demand for real estate in Heidelberg and good locations in the surrounding area continues to be at a very high level. An outstanding infrastructure in the Rhine-Neckar region allows Heidelberg to quickly reach the economic centers of Frankfurt, Karlsruhe or Mannheim / Ludwigshafen. Comparisons of the largest German cities in economic publications also speak in favor of the outstanding residential and location quality of the region. Here, Heidelberg always achieves front places.
