How to find a good rental apartment in Denmark

When you need a new place to live, you need to decide, whether you want to buy or rent a property. There are of course some pros and cons, you need to consider, if you choose a rental property in Denmark. In this article, you will learn about these pros and cons.
There are many ways in, which you can search for vacancies in Denmark. A good place to start is by visiting the online website www.boligninja.dk. Here you can find apartments in, whichever city you may want to live in. Some of the most popular cities in Denmark are Copenhagen, Odense, Aalborg and Aarhus. There are many other great cities, but these cities are good, if you want to live in cities with many people and lot of infrastructure.

Pros of choosing an apartment
The biggest advantage of choosing a rental property over a home ownership is the freedom you will get. Let us assume that you have chosen a rental property in Odense. In two years from now, you get your absolute dream job in Copenhagen, and you have to move there. If you own a house, you have to sell this, before being able to move the new location. This can take from 1 week to maybe several years.

In an apartment, you will not have this problem. In Denmark there is as a three-month termination, which means that you can get to your new job very fast. Another advantage is that you have no maintenance expenses, when you live in a rental property. The landlord has to pay if for an example your water pipes blow, or your window is smashed. Overall, you know your economic situation, when you live in an apartment. You have to pay the rent, your electricity, heat and water. This means you have no economic risks in a rental property. Of course, there are also some cons about it.

Cons of choosing an apartment

The biggest con is that you cannot do as you please. If you want another kitchen or if you wish to remove a wall, the landlord has to approve. You get the rental property as it is, and other people choose all changes.

Another con is that you cannot use your home ownership to start a saving. When you start paying off a home ownership, you will get equity in your house, which you can later use for a loan. In an apartment, this advantage goes to the landlord.

Choosing the right apartment
It is not always easy to choose the right apartment. You need to find a place, where you and maybe your family can live, which requires a certain amount of bedrooms. In addition, you need to find a place, where you can pay the rent.

One of the most expensive city to get a rental property is in Copenhagen. Cheaper alternatives if you still want to live in a big city is Aarhus, Odense or Aalborg. You can also find very cheap apartments if you choose to live in a smaller town, or out in the country. Whatever your needs are, there is most certainly an apartment in Denmark ready for you.
