Dein Zuhause auf Zeit
A unique concept
tailored to today’s needs
YUMA is based on a modern operator concept. The apartment buildings are digitally managed as commercial residential properties.
Apart from a limited supply of hotel rooms, Kiel only offers an equally limited selection of serviced apartments.
Compared to these traditional temporary accommodation options, YUMA sets an unprecedented standard for temporary metropolitan living with exceptional flexibility for tenants while providing maximum convenience.
YUMA combines individual working and open space concepts, independence, living comfort, stylish furnishings and facilities, and effortless access to the new city with the desire to retreat after a long working day. This means that a novel property investment is now available in the sought-after location of Kiel, which responds to changes in demand and offers the end customer more privacy than traditional temporary accommodation options - a sustainable capital investment in a growing market of the future that is still under-represented in Kiel.

The temporary rental market in particular seems to have come to a standstill.

The German housing market has hardly changed for decades - to the detriment of tenants and landlords. This also applies to Leipzig. In Germany's fastest-growing city, the creation of new housing lags behind population growth. Contemporary residential concepts that address megatrends such as urbanisation, mobility and sustainability are few and far between. The temporary rental market in particular has come to a standstill.
This is precisely where the innovative business model of digitally managed longstay apartments comes in. As a brand, YUMA - Your Urban Managed Apartments - is launching a novel property investment in Kiel's city centre, generating sustainable returns for investors. These commercially operated apartments offer tax advantages, are robust against rental market regulation, and provide an investment with a potential generated by the demand for long-term guests in Kiel. We are convinced that we have taken property investment to a new and more profitable level with YUMA Longstay Apartments in Kiel.
The YUMA apartment building comprises a total of 133 longstay apartments with an innovative temporary accommodation concept aimed at discerning target groups such as business travellers, engineers and creatives. Design, digitalisation and automation are the key elements of this unique concept
For the sustainable investor buying real estate is usually a long-term investment with risks and opportunities regarding the potential returns. Real estate is not suitable for short-term investments due to the ancillary costs, such as notary fees and taxes.
Right now, investing in real estate is a good opportunity for increasing the value of your investment. For some time now, however, land and construction costs have been rising sharply in key regions. Interest rates for investment properties are still at a historic low. Compared to other capital investments, a property investment is generally stable in value and relatively crisis-proof.
This can be seen in the past development of real estate values. Unfortunately, politics places an ever larger burden on real estate purchases (by constantly increasing property transfer tax, introducing rent caps). Nevertheless, real property is specially protected by the German constitution and cannot be expropriated without compensation.
Inflationary pressures, which are now feared due to the current monetary policy, are usually not to be expected due to the limited availability of land.
Investment tip: 10 of the most important factors
for assessing the risks and opportunities of a property investment
When it comes to property investments choosing the right partner is essential. This applies both to the seller and the investor. The seller YUMA Development GmbH & Co. KG only signs contracts with investors who have the equity and/or borrowed funds required for the investment at their disposal or who have binding commitments.
YUMA Development GmbH & Co. KG is a company established specifically for the development of the present project with proven expertise in the development of high-yield properties as a sustainable investment.
The contract offers the purchase of a partial property within the meaning of the German Residential Property Act (WoEigG). With the purchase, the investor concludes a lease contract with the operating company YUMA Service GmbH. There is no need to commission a rental agent, as this function is performed by the lessee.
3.1 Our location
The YUMA Longstay Apartments are located on Bahnhofstraße 31 in Kiel’s Gaarden-Ost district. This district of Kiel is also called “Klösterlich Gaarden” (monastic garden), due to it originating from a village owned by the monastery and, together with neighbouring Gaarden- Süd, forms the overarching district of Gaarden.
4.1 Lease contract
The operator/lessee provides the furnishings and is in charge of lease management including minor repairs in the apartments as well as all energy and other costs necessary for their operation. The purchasers/lessors do not have to prepare a service charge statement. The purchasers/lessors only pay property tax for the real property as well as insurance for the property, in addition to a maintenance reserve of €5.50/m² plus costs of the residential property management to the amount of €22.
A property needs to be managed. The quality of its management is a key factor for the value of a property and investment as well as a crucial requirement for a possible increase in value. The management of a part-ownership unit essentially includes the management of the common property as well as the individual property. Negligent management of a property may lead to a diminished value, lower rental income, and avoidable repair expenses. Diligent management also includes the careful maintenance of outdoor facilities, for example. A good manager according to the German Residential Property Act will also be able to get the owners he represents to pull together, especially when it comes to important decisions at owners' meetings, e.g. resolutions on special costs, the enforcement of warranty claims or action against co-owners who have defaulted on paying common charges.
Anyone who decides to invest in real estate should think long-term. It is advisable to invest for a period of at least 10 years or more. Long-term planning of a sustainable investor includes making timely provisions for maintenance and repairs that may become necessary in the future.
A property investment is usually financed both by equity and borrowed funds.
7.1 Purchase price and ancillary costs
In addition to the purchase price, the investor usually has to pay ancillary costs (notary and land registry costs as well as property transfer tax) as part of the investment, as well as any interim financing costs that may arise, which must be included in the total investment volume.
For property financing, both the borrower’s creditworthiness and the value of the object to be financed, i.e. the property, play a role, as it usually serves as collateral for the loan. It is advisable for the purchaser to keep the property in his or her portfolio for a long term.
There are a wide variety of finance models with different risks and opportunities, which can be tailored to the individual needs of the capital investor. Before making a purchase, the investor should obtain several quotes for this purpose or ask his sales partner or an expert consultant, such as a bank, lawyer or tax advisor for detailed information and advice.
