Renovation costs of an apartment in Germany depend to a large extent on the year of the last renovation and the overall condition of the apartment. Many old buildings in Germany (Altbauten) that have not yet been renovated, there is quite a bit of work to put in and can be costly for you to renovate. Apartments that were built in the 80s or 90s, the work to put in is rather limited and mainly needs some appearance work to make the apartment looks nice again.
The kitchen and bathroom are very important for tenants and both of them can look outdated and cheap if little attention was paid to “timeless” designs.
Floorings and wall renovations are minor in terms of cash outlflows and uplift the overall appearance of the apartment if the work is done nicely.
Single glazed windows have to be replaced
Aluminium windows without insulation have to be replaced as well
Sometimes there are only minor adjustments necessary such as replacing the inner sealing of the window or adjusting hinges.
The renovation, refurbishment or modernization of an apartment is easy to manage with a structured way of working and costs can be easily saved here.
