I'm looking for renting a house in Germany and I encountered this phrase. What does it exactly mean?
The price was a lot higher than a normal price for renting an apartment.

Does this mean a whole year deposit and after the period, my whole amount will be return back to me?

The phrase literally means ownership instead of rent. It’s hard to tell without further context, but you may have seen an offer for buying a home, combined with a loan. In that case, you would pay a certain amount regularly for the next ten or fifteen or twenty years until you have paid back the loan and the home is yours.
