SATO RentHomes offer a solution to those who want a long-term home from a reliable lessor. We offer all sorts of city homes, cosy and awesome - studios, family homes, senior apartments.
The location of an apartment remains one of, if not the most important criteria for our customers. SATO's rented homes are concentrated in Helsinki Metropolitan Area and the economic areas of Tampere, Turku, Oulu and Jyväskylä region and St. Petersburg. Location also has significant impact on the development of the value of apartments, and that is why approximately 80 per cent of the housing property is located in the Helsinki region. SATO homes are close to public transportation routes and services, which helps us to reduce the carbon footprint caused by our operations.
In the largest cities of Finland, households of one or two people account for 70–80 per cent of all households. In recent years, the proportion of living costs from income has increased, which has strongly directed demand towards smaller apartments. Instead of space, people appreciate functional solutions, a balcony and high-quality surface materials. Of all SATO RentHomes, 70 per cent are 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. SATO's rented homes have an average size of 56.2 m².
Our apartments are homes for our customers, and we want them to enjoy their homes. We take good care of the condition and cleanliness of buildings and outdoor areas. During regular maintenance visits, we inspect any need for maintenance in apartments, and the service manager coordinates all repairs performed in buildings. Our residents can also renovate their homes using SATO's DIY renovation kit, which includes optional materials and tools for a facelift.
Systematic corrective action to develop the quality of SATO's housing portfolio. We monitor the condition of the rental housing tasks every two years service call to repair small defects in connection with surveying and larger repair needs. Apartment inspections are made primarily as a our own activity.
For most SATO homes the lease agreement remains valid until further notice and can be terminated with effect no earlier than either six or twelve months from the start date of the agreement. In these apartments the security deposit is a round 0 euros!
SATO FlexHome is a new form of part ownership where you get access to an urban home of your dreams with a small initial capital outlay as soon as you've signed the contract. After five years of part ownership, you can purchase your home in full. You can also sell your share back to SATO and either move out or continue living in your familiar home, renting it from us under a lease agreement.
SATO FlexHome is particularly suitable for life's transition periods. Perhaps you have sold your home in a smaller city and would like to move to Helsinki. Or you have saved a small amount for your first owner-occupied home but are not yet willing to commit to a big housing loan. Or perhaps you are unsure about your near future - whether you will stay in this city or might be moving to another one in a couple of years' time.
