Property for rent in Finland
In Finland, many people live in properties for rent because the costs of the properties being sold are very high.
The capital Helsinki is the one with the most requests for properties for rent in Finland but the prices in the centre may be higher than those in Manhattan and up to 40% more than other cities in Finland.
Those who do not have the possibility to pay for a property for rent in Helsinki because of the high costs prefer to choose specific accommodation for students. These properties for rent are typically cheaper.
Some areas of Helsinki are very popular and any free apartment is rented very quickly.
It is usually possible to find a private property for rent faster than the municipal one, but the rent will generally be higher.
If you are interested in properties for rent in Finland with a little more moderate costs Turku could be a solution. For many centuries, Turku was the capital and the largest city in Finland. It was also the main western port city of Finland.
Lappeenranta is even smaller than Turku but the rental properties here are definitely interesting.
It is on the shore of Lake Saimaa, the fourth largest lake in Europe, Lappeenranta is one of the favourite places of the Finns. The position is also important from a political point of view, in fact it is equidistant between Helsinki and St. Petersburg and it is a connection between Russia and the West.
Savonlinna is a city inland and Hanko could be a surprise, because it is the place where many people in the area go sunbathing and for many years the Russian nobility chose it for the holidays.
Moving further from the capital Helsinki in search of a property for rent in Finland, you get to Mariehamn, or Maarianhamina in Finnish which is the capital of Aland, an autonomous Swedish-speaking territory on which Finland has sovereignty.
If, on the other hand, you are interested in small villages and prefer to find properties for rent surrounded by nature and very simple, we recommend the villages of Puumala, Sulkava, Anttola and Mäntyharju.
