Rental

Our business philosophy is to keep Landlords and Tenants fully satisfied.

To achieve this, we have created our Pre-Booking System.

This System has the opportunity to rent in a more flexible structure which is a basic requirement for foreign Tenants based on promptness, exactitude, good communication, flexibility and also a complete service for foreign tenants spanning the entire horizon of lessees from students to businessmen.

Adapting to new trends, we manage short term (quarter year), medium term (semester) and long term lease agreements.

Strength of success  is “regular” marketing communication to provide personal high level 24/7 correspondence (RED LINE) and availablity towards Landlords and Tenants.

Our Pre-Booking System based on promptness, exactitude, good communication, flexibility and also a complete service for foreign Tenants spanning the entire horizon of lessees from students to businessmen. The Pre-Booking System also ensures the Tenant’s preference mapping.

Another reason of continous renting the periodical feedback to Landlords about Tenant’s opinion and suggestions in relation to properties thereby helping to keep apartments competitively. Adapting to new trends we manage short term(erasmus), medium term (semester) and long term lease agreements.

From landlords

“I had the first contact with West Budapest early 2016, I was looking for a property management company which could take care of my apartment in the 6th district. My requirements were to renovate the flat, to renew the furniture, to find tenants for long term periods and to take care of them, collect rental fees, fix rapidly the problems which may occur in an apartment, etc … well usual things one would say but I had really bad experience in the past with other companies. West Budapest not only meet the requirements but they are also very fair, they don’t try to make money on your back, they always tell you what makes sense to repair, what makes sense to replace, trying to find the optimal solution. The management fee is correct, and I always get in time the rentals and the monthly report. The communication per email works very good. My apartment was renovated and furnished very quickly. We discussed the budget before and it was fully respected. I got an invoice about everything. A new tenant was found rapidly as well, almost right after the flat has been renovated. West Budapest also works with an independent accountant that you may use for doing tax declaration and other administrative stuff. All in one, I am very happy with West Budapest and I would recommend them.”
Mr. Fabien Goulabert, Austria
„Dear Eniko/Gabor Just a note to thank you both for your professional management of our apartment in Budapest for the last several years. It was most professional and thorough. Without doubt your company service greatly exceeded our expectations. It is very reassuring to a client when he/she knows that all management and service issues, as they arise , are dealt with promptly and thoroughly. Your diligent and speedy assistance during our recent sales process was superb. We have no hesitation in recommending your company to any future clients. With many sincere thanks,
Edward Daly & Donal Marron, Ireland. Formerly Doned Enterprises Bt - Budapest.”
