When trying to rent out or find an apartment in Munich, you may feel a little overwhelmed with all the rules and responsibilities—but that’s where Mr Lodge comes in.
Mr Lodge, a leading partner in providing furnished apartments in Munich for 25 years, lets expats focus on the important things when making the move abroad and helps tenants navigate the tricky process of successfully securing a furnished property for themselves.
Providing short-term accommodation in Munich
Expats that come to Munich on a temporary basis often want the smoothest and fastest transition possible. After all, they are leaving their lives behind and starting anew with plenty of other things to think about, such as starting new jobs and making new friends. Finding an apartment in Munich—and furnishing it with all the essentials—may be the last things on their minds.
Mr Lodge makes fast work of matching expats with the right short-term apartments in Munich, providing accommodation for anywhere from three months to four years. Instead of bunking in a hotel and hopping from appointment to appointment to check out apartments that just don’t suit—and with rental agents that don’t speak the same language—they can move in and get settled as soon as they arrive in the city. And the Mr Lodge staff is truly international; they speak not only German and English, but Italian, French, Spanish, Danish, Dutch and other languages.
Online, Mr Lodge provides a massive list of modest and luxury homes and apartments for rent in Munich supplemented by professional photos and detailed information for expats to browse even before they arrive. Each apartment, ranging from one room to four and up, is completely furnished from top to bottom, including the small details such as pots and pans for the kitchen and towels for the bathroom. Internet, cable, electricity and almost everything else is all taken care of—expats only need to bring themselves and their suitcases.
Simply sign up as a private customer—registration and real estate brokerage services are free for tenants—with your requirements, including which neighbourhood in Munich you’d like to live in, to get the process started.
Helping companies find accommodation for employees
Employers are bringing in new workers from abroad in droves, and they all need a place to live. Mr Lodge works with companies in Germany to find the right short-term housing in Munich for employees and their families. The staff works closely with each employer’s HR team to ensure newly relocated employees feel at home in Munich and quickly adjust to life abroad.
Assisting landlords with Munich apartments for rent
Those that rent out property in Munich may find the process more trouble than it’s worth: they have to take (decent) photos, set up various listings, meet and screen prospective tenants, arrange contracts and perform maintenance—and, of course, ensure they receive rent on time. This can all become even more complicated if they do not actually live in Munich.
Instead, landlords can let Mr Lodge present their properties in the best light to trustworthy tenants. In addition to registering the property online, Mr Lodge provides extensive advice and service throughout the rental process.
Its interior design team can offer guidance on furnishings—or even take charge of a complete renovation, including construction management and the purchase and installation of brand-new furniture. The professional photo and video service will show off the newly decorated property on the Mr Lodge apartment database and external portals. When prospective tenants come knocking, Mr Lodge can show them around—and perform a financial background check on the prospective tenant.
During occupancy, Mr Lodge provides maintenance services for small and large repairs in the apartment as well as for any appliances; it also assists landlords in hiring a professional cleaning service to provide weekly or maintenance cleanings. Landlords trust Mr Lodge to ensure the property is rented out and maintained while they’re away—and because the team is internationally diverse, landlords won’t have to worry about miscommunication with tenants that speak a different language.
Finding a short-term apartment in Munich or renting one out to expats on a temporary basis doesn’t have to take up all your time. With Mr Lodge, the entire process—from viewing apartments to handing over the keys—can all be arranged and taken care of by them.
