Apartment Hunting: Where to start? (Munich)

Hi Everyone,

My partner and I are considering a move for a new job which would relocate us to Munich. We are very excited to explore this as an option!

We're conditioned by San Francisco rental prices (currently we pay $3100/month for an unfurnished one-bedroom), so seeing rental rates in Munich makes us a bit skeptical: how could it possibly be so inexpensive?? :)

So, we're naturally worried about the prices we're seeing and wanted to make sure we're checking all the boxes. For those of you who made a move from the US (or similarly-behaving rental markets), could you provide some of your own experiences around how to understand what's all included in a rental, what the average rates are, etc.?

Thank you all in advance - looking forward to possibly being part of your lovely city soon.
