The Housing Funds of Taaleri have helped ease the chronic shortage of rental homes, a problem particularly in the capital region. At the same time, we have invested Finnish capital in Finland and also promoted employment in the construction industry.
One in every four Finns lives in rented accommodation. The demand for rental homes is particularly strong for small apartments because 85% of Finnish people in rented homes live alone or in two-person households. There is a chronic shortage of small rental apartments in the capital region.
As the number of alternative investment objects decreases and the general market risk increases, real estate properties produce a steady, long-term return. The falling interest rates, diversification of financing sources and the concrete nature of real estate assets also increase the attractiveness of the real estate market.
Taaleri was one of the first asset managers to introduce housing funds to the market and also one of the first to exit from some of them by selling the objects to new owners, thus exceeding the investors’ expectations. Taaleri’s expertise in housing funds is exceptional, because the objects are largely developed by the company itself, providing the right framework for good-quality housing and profitable exits.
Housing developed by Taaleri helps alleviate the persistent and severe shortage of rental properties, which has been particularly evident in the Helsinki region. We have built or collaborated in building over a thousand rental apartments in the capital region, as well as in the towns of Rauma and Pori.
Taaleri has exited Housing Funds I, III and V. Housing Funds II, IV and VI are closed and no longer accept new investors.
