We work according to the UMS Win-Win-Win system. It works like this: Legally, our housing providers could charge an additional 20% for furnishings in addition to their cost price. However, we recommend to avoid doing this and only charge at cost price – this way, our Win-Win-Win price system creates three winners.
Win1: Our housing providers have their costs covered - but do not charge anything for furniture.
Win2: We are there for you - instead of our providers, we increase the rent price by 20% (UMS brockerage & service fee) in order to make the portal and our service available.
Win3: Our tenants do not pay for more than they receive - they pay for the rent, and pay us an additional 20% – equivalent to the value of the furnishings.
The UMS brokerage & service fee is 20% of the gross rental payments over the duration of the rental agreement including any future extensions. The seeker pays the UMS fee. UMS adds the fee to the rental price that the provider charges. Rental prices on the UMS portal include the brokerage & service fee.
Particularly attractive offers are highlighted by the following icons:
The landlord is renting out at his own cost (resp. at market price if he is an owner) with no surcharge for furnishings.
The landlord is renting out below cost price (resp. below market price if he is an owner).
