Relocating to Frankfurt – BS relocation services can assist
Frankfurt is Germany’s most cosmopolitan city, with foreigners making up more than one-quarter of the population. It is an international city where newcomers settle down quickly and feel at home: It is considered to be multicultural because it is home to people from around 180 different nationalities. It’s also Germany’s number one city for international professionals – with around 170 foreign banks, 3000 foreign companies and 92 foreign consulates. As headquarters of the European Central Bank and the home of the German Stock Exchange, Frankfurt is a leading centre of finance and commerce in Europe and in the world.
For expatriates moving to the Rhine-Main region it is becoming increasingly popular to live in Frankfurt city. If you value convenience, a short commute to work and a favourite restaurant around the corner, then Frankfurt is the right choice. The most popular residential areas are Bockenheim, the West end, the Nordend and Sachsenhausen..
For newcomers housing is probably the most essential issue when moving abroad. Questions like: Will I maintain the quality of living? What will I get for my money? Which location is suitable for me and my family? All are needing to be answered and all within a limited period of time.
Frankfurt with its fast moving rental property market has an over proportional share of expatriates with an average rental period of 2-3 years which results in a high turnover of available apartments. Apartments go as fast as they come on the market and online offers are often already taken by the time they appear. Therefore the excellent contacts of a well established relocation company with a network of real estate agents, home owners and property management companies makes a real difference when trying to secure the property you need.
How to choose the appropriate relocation service for my company’s requirements? There are more than 40 relocation agencies located in and around Frankfurt. Decisive criteria for the right choice should be : long lasting experience in the relocation business, an international background, excellent “soft skills”, professionalism and flexibility.
