Study: Helsinki supports its high-income tenants with tens of millions a year
Almost five thousand high-income households in Helsinki profit thousands of euros a year from the low rents charged by the City of Helsinki. The households pay considerably lower rents than tenants in the neighbouring, non-subsidised rental units owned by real estate investors: the difference between the rents is an average of six euros per square metre, but it can be greater in neighbourhoods located at the heart of the city.

A single household can consequently save up to 10,000 euros in annual housing costs in the most sought-after neighbourhoods, such as Arabianranta and Katajanokka.
