How to easily profit from tourism in Hungary

Tourism in Hungary is one of the most important and fastest growing industries, amounting to 1558 billion HUF in 2016. In 2015, 15.6 million tourists have visited the country, in 2016 it was 16.8 million. One of the simplest ways to profit from this industry is buying an apartment to use as a vacation rental.

How can I find a registered address as a foreigner in Hungary?

The rental market is booming, and many apartment owners prefer to rent to a Hungarian who they can talk to in person, and who they believe knows local customs better. The situation is even more difficult when you are trying to rent a place before arriving to Hungary: the fact that they cannot see you in person dissuades many people from signing a contract with you.

Useful Tips

If you own a property in Hungary that you are not using all the time, it is a great option to rent it out short-term to tourists – with our management, this will not result in any wear and tear, and meanwhile you can stay in your own place whenever visiting!

Property Management

Owning a property abroad can be tricky business, especially if you are not living in Hungary full-time. Don’t worry: our property management services are tailored to foreign home-owners and investors, and can turn your property ownership in Hungary into pleasant and trouble-free experience for you.

Management of rental properties

Whether you want to rent out your apartment for long-term or short-term, we are here to help you! With long-term rentals you can plan your monthly income, meanwhile short-term rentals provide more flexibility and, in most cases, higher income.

Home management

Our “home management package” includes prompt rent collection, handling all administration related to the apartment, and maintaining a proactive relationship with the tenants on your behalf.

Short-term rentals
