Cover your own costs - don't intend to make a profit

We recommend to ask for a rent which doesn't exceed your own costs, so that you don't make a profit from the sub-lease.

But of course you can demand a sum that covers your effective costs. That includes ancillary costs, such as utilities (electricity and water), TV and radio license fee, internet charges, etc, in addition to the gross base rent.

In theory, you could also apply a surcharge for the furnishings, but this is seldom done in practice because as a private subletter, one's primary objective is to cover, or at least substantially minimize, one's effective rental costs at home during an extended stay abroad.

The fact is that the majority of our providers demand only their effective costs and about a third even less than that. Only a few ask for a surcharge for furnishings.

We don't publish clearly overpriced apartments.

No responsibility is taken for the correctness of this information.
