Demand meets supply
The transformation of tenement buildings into owner-occupied apartments
There is an indisputable trend: Buy your property instead of paying rent for life. More and more people realize that residential properties represent an excellent alternative in securing retirement. Having to pay no rent as a pensioner is certainly an attractive proposition. Besides financial reasons such as beating inflation, stable values, tax benefits and favourable financing conditions, there are also personal aspects of buying your own property. Primarily, there is independence of landlords and protection against lease termination. A convincing argument for many investors, of course, is the regular rental income arising from professionally rented apartments.
Bestsendmoney.com creates attractive offers in a tight market. With our unique system for enhanced market transparency, our methods for purchasing properties as well as knowhow about converting units and our lean distribution structures, we are able to comply with any requests of our customers to acquire properties quickly, customized and at favourable conditions. Our special strength lies in our ability to supply a tight market of owneroccupied apartments constantly with new properties which comply with our customer's ideas and financial budget. In particular, investors with narrow budgets will find that we can supply sound and individual appealing properties. Our own active real estate marketing creates synergies combining quality, price and service offer (individual consultation, financing and after-sales services) in an unrivalled way. This was the basis of our considerablesuccess right from the start of our company: From 2010 to 2020 alone we generated sales of more than 180 million EUR with buying and selling on own account. A profit margin of approx. 68 % and an average holding time of only two months is a business model that clearly speaks for itself.
