8 POINTS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER WHEN
BUYING AN INVESTMENT APARTMENT

  • THE LOCATION
    A good infrastructure guarantees sustainable rental interest in an apartment. This means: the apartment should have good transport connections and the quality of life in the surrounding area should be high.
  • THE SIZE
    The size of an apartment should be aligned with the largest rental market. This means that you should match the highest demand. For a 2 room apartment this lies between 40 and 55 m² and for 3 room apartments, up to 70m² of living space.
  • GOOD GROUND PLAN
    A compact room layout, geared to the needs of your tenants, is also a success criterion for investment apartments. Those that take this into account at the planning stage will ensure satisfied long-term tenants and sustainable additional income.
  • QUALITY
    An apartment that provides a high level of building quality and equipment levels is also easier to rent out. Under floor heating, solid wood flooring, modern fitted kitchens and designer bathrooms are a guarantee for sustainable and ongoing revenue.
  • FORWARD LOOKING CONSTRUCTION
    Energy efficiency is not only important from an environmental point of view, but also for future tenants. Modern, low energy standards and construction mostly of brick, means a better indoor climate at lower energy costs and higher levels of tenant satisfaction. Your investment apartment thus remains in demand.
  • PROVIDER CHECK
    Such important financial decisions should only be undertaken with specialists with years of experience and high professional competence. An investment apartment is a long-term project and is to create lasting residual income. Therefore, ask yourself these questions: Will this provider even exist in 20 years’ time? And will they accept work from me? RAAB & RAAB is the oldest supplier in Austria with a company structure that has for decades, in-house, attended to the needs and activities of our satisfied customers.

  • SECURE PAYMENT ONLY BY TRUSTEES
    Do not assign your money simply to a provider of investment apartments. Strictly comply with property development laws and regulations! Here, the money is transferred to a trustee who makes the transfers only after the registration of your ownership claim in the land registry. In doing so, only paying for those construction phases that have already been completed. So you have 100 percent certainty that the construction of your investment property is also brought to a conclusion and there is no dependence on the commercial success of the construction companies.
  • REALISTIC PROMISES
    An apartment is an investment, therefore, one also speaks of an investor apartment. Do not fall for implausible promises of returns! Do not place your trust in firms that ‘promise you the moon’, but rather trust those that apply common sense. Learn more about investment apartments as an investment.
