What was rent like in the third reich

The Third Reich enacted the Law on Price Freezes (Preisstoppgesetz) of 1936 which prohibited rent increases.

A master craftsman from Berlin earned 200 RM per month minus 30 RM for taxes, insurances and membership fees for DAF etc.
The rent for his accommodation in a Berlin working class district was 65 Reichsmarks (RM). One of the family's rooms was rented to a lodger for 25 RM.
The daily subsistence allowance for his two children and his old parents was 2 RM. The costs for public transport were 10 RM per month.
The lunch consisted mainly of potatoes with vegetables like cucumber and radish; Fish, meat and eggs were sundays dishes. The family's "dinner" was bread with cheap so called "Volkswurst". Butter was an unknown luxury good and was replaced with margarine. Even for small purchases like a fishing rod or a simple photo camera money had to been put aside for weeks or months. Sometimes the father could make some extra Reichsmarks with moonlighting.

Is this good?
>be a wagie with family
>spend (65/170RM=) 38% of take-home pay on renting a home
>including income from subletting, rent is (65/195RM=) 33% of monthly income

On the other hand, if you were a single guy with no fam you pay 25RM to rent a room

So is it good or bad?
 
Average monthly wages for blue and white collar workers in the Third Reich (from the Axis History forum thread):

1933 - 132 RM
1934 - 134 RM
1935 - 142 RM
1936 - 150 RM
1937 - 155 RM
1938 - 163 RM
1939 - 175 RM
1940 - 180 RM
1941 - 191 RM
1942 - 192 RM
1943 - 194 RM
1944 - 191 RM

Goverment employees and teachers earned approx. 10% better.

The prices were stable and didn't change much, from 1933 to 1937 the price for 1kg of bread was 0.33 RM, from 1938 to 1945 0.37 RM.
The price for 1 litre of milk in the twelve years of the Third Reich was 0.23 RM, half a litre of beer was 0.39 RM.

So cost of renting a single room in Berlin in the 1930s = 25RM = 50 x 0.50RM (approximately 50kg of bread + 50 jugs of 1 liter milk)

I went to check prices of groceries at ASDA currently:
Milk = (£1.50/lt)
White Bread = (16.9p/100g) or (£1.69/kg)

So renting a single room for 25RM in Berlin in 1939 is equivalent to getting a bedsit in London in current year for £160 (=50 x £3.20, using 50 kg of bread + 50l of milk as an approximation)

Nigga idk how much 1930s Reichmarks are worth
 
Nigga idk how much 1930s Reichmarks are worth
I was using bread and milk prices to compare rental rates then vs now for you neger.

Basically a Londoner needs to be making £6000 pounds a month in 2023 to enjoy the same standard of living as a working class person earning 175RM a month in 1939 Berlin.
 
Oyyyyyy vey still we can jack you filthy antisemites rent because financial system is (((global)))
 
it's good it's like getting a bedsit in London for £160 a month, or spending only 14% of your monthly income on rent (e.g. you're earning £1140 every month and pay £160 to rent a room).
