Our operational cost management is advantageous to both tenant and landlord

The so-called Second Rent operating costs have increasingly developed into a burden for the tenant and the landlord. The reason for this is the increasing growth of all associated costs in recent years. This is especially true in the area community charges and now those of energy and heating.

For the tenant the cost of living is disproportionately high. For the landlord the increased operational costs reduce the margins for rent increases and make renting more difficult. In areas with high numbers of vacant properties these operational costs become an unbearable burden for the owner and landlord. This means that new demands are made for a more efficient property management from both parties.

By increasing the satisfaction of your tenants we unfold the potential of your property

Our primary goal in Operating Cost Mananagement is an increased satisfaction for the user, which results in lower fluctuation rates and higher occupancy rates. An optimization of the operating costs demands on one hand a successful realisation of the individual projects to reduce costs, and on the other hand continuous performance of improvements. Benchmarking, a continuing comparative analysis of property related operational costs with those of other local, regional and national providers, has proved to be an effective instrument for reducing operational costs.

The goal is to identify the performance deficitsin leading businesses and to close these systematically. This shows the owners, by comparing property related operational costs with the current market based costs, which areas show the need for action and where the greatest savings potentials are.

More than half of the total operational costs belong to the so-called soft overheads (Weiche Betriebskosten). This means they are costs which can be directly influenced by the landlord and tenant. The operational costs can be reduced by selection of the sort of heating and capacity of the system when constructing a new building, the tenant can also reduce the costs by their consumption behaviour. If they are property related costs i.e. lifts, caretaker, cleaning, the contract with the provider or service company can be made more user friendly. The hard overheads (Harte Betriebskosten) are difficult for the tenant and landlord to influence, these are normally community charges and taxes. Even the community is obliged to leave a little latitude when calculating charges.
