What are my options?

Getting started together...

How does profit sharing work?

By choosing the option of profit-sharing, you take the leap into real estate with us. The difference? You and your neighbors (with a storage) receive 50% of the profit after the sale of the new home!

Naturally, HoogWonen takes care of everything. From permits, (rental) mediation, pre-financing, redevelopment, to the final sale. You don't have to do a thing except making the storage available to us. All agreements run smoothly and as usual through the notary.

Profit sharing from a redevelopment project takes a little longer, but your patience pays off! Your yield can be up to 30% higher compared to a prepayment!

We understand that in these uncertain times you'd rather had the money yesterday than tomorrow. For this reason we will provide you with an advance on your share of the profits  up to €15.000,- per storage. This being eligible as soon as the municipality issues the necessary permits. This should provide you with the possibility to directly improve your energy label or realize that longtime dream.

All steps to be taken are explained in more detail below:

Profit Sharing Roadmap
Location Check

We have already done a preliminary investigation before we come by. Matters such as the size of your VVE, an indication of the potential number of meters, energy label, and which permits are needed to create a new home at all, have been sorted out.

On location, the storage facilities that have potential for transformation are measured in accordance with the NEN2580 standard and the exact locations of the supporting walls are determined.

The general condition of the property is also examined. This includes existing insulation, the condition of the stairwell, existing pipes to the top floor, the foundation state, etc.

Based on our findings we can formulate an offer with a yield indication.

Offer

Our offer indicates the maximum we can offer in the case of an acquisition in advance, compared to profit sharing.

In addition, several floor layout drawings are supplied with corresponding scenarios. Here, the possible revenues per owner are displayed.

Finally, an indication is given of lead times ending at the sale of the new home.

If all storage owners in question agree, all conditions are drawn up, recorded and signed at the notary.

Agreement VVE (and tenants)

To be able to carry out the work, at least 80% of the VVE votes must vote in favor to the proposed change. In the case of a VVE that consists of one building (4 apartments), all owners must agree to the so-called layout change.

A new apartment-right will be added to the property division deed. The future owner of the new home will have to meet obligations such as paying VVE costs, which contributes to the reduction of your monthly payments.

If the entire VVE is in agreement, the notary will submit the desired change to any mortgage lenders and, if the property is subject to ground lease, to the municipality of Amsterdam.

Naturally, any tenants must agree to hand over their storage space as well. HoogWonen arranges generous compensation for them and a replacement storage room nearby.

Permits

In order to create a new home, an "omgevings" permit and a "woningvorming" permit are always required. Additionally, a "splitings" permit may be required. For this, a foundation investigation must be carried out. Hoogwonen will request all necessary permits on behalf of the owners.

When all permits have been obtained, we pay an advance on the profit up to €15.000,-  per storage.

Redevelopment

Once approved by the municipality, the redevelopment can begin. If desired, we move all items from the storage rooms to the external replacement storage.

The new apartment will then be created, the stairwell will be refurbished and, if desired, the current homes will also be provided with an optimal energy label.

On average, the redevelopment takes 4 to 6 weeks to complete.

Sale & Profit Sharing

Once the new home has been created, it will be sold for a fixed  fee and never by closed envelope. As neighbors you have a say in who the house is sold to.

After the sale, the profits will be divided among all parties in accordance with the notarial agreements. Any advance payment and costs for making the current homes more sustainable are deducted.

After the sale, the profits will be divided among all parties in accordance with the notarial agreements. Any advance payment and costs for making the current homes more sustainable are deducted.

Sustainablity

The roadmap to an optimal energy label...

Single-pane windows, poor insulation, a dated central heating system, or even the old-fashioned boiler. Unfortunately, half of Amsterdam's homes are dealing with a low to very poor energy label. Meaning that this doesn't only result in a high cost for its residents, but also for our planet.

Making a building more sustainable comes at great expense and should  ideally be carried out for the entire buliding in one go. These type of costs are hardly included in the long-term maintenance planning if one is already present. And lets face it; you probably don't have such an amount lying around just like that.

HoogWonen's NùGroen initiative offers the solution. When all permits for the new home have been issued, HoogWonen will immediately make  up to €300.000,-  available to carry out main sustainability work on the building like implementing a gas-free central heating system or HR glass. We can implement these aspects directly for the entire property in close consultation with the VVE. That's how HoogWonen gets work done for you right away!

If the remaining budget allows it, aspects such as floor and cavity wall insulation will be included during the transformation of the top floor. Additionally, the stairwell and roof will receive a free refurbshment. 

This is how HoogWonen kills two birds with one stone. The sustainability boost increases the living comfort and  value of your property while a new home comes on the market.

Tenant Mediation

Everybody wins...

It happens a lot. Tenants and landlords with conflict of interests. Depending on the energy label, the need for renovation is high as tenants are living in the cold or stuck with a sky-high energy bill. Therefore, they often express their urgent needs to their landlord. And although landlords are generally benevolent, making an entire building more sustainable is a time-consuming job and can quickly get very expensive. This is not something that can be done just like that.

In the cabinet's sustainability plans, houses with a poor energy label may no longer be rented out in the future. So sooner or later a sustainability step will have to be taken.

The money must come from somewhere. And even if a tenant is understanding, he is not waiting for a rent increase. Nevertheless, the landlord must realize the return somewhere. A bank loan is not cheap as well.

With HoogWonen, the challenge is the solution for both landlords and tenants; By transforming storage rooms into a new home, the necessary sustainability boost can be financed through its sale. 

In addition to a more sustainable home, tenants receive a generous compensation, a replacement storage room nearby, increased living comfort and a reduced energy bill. The landlord will own a refurbished and sustainable building that has undergone major maintenance for the years to come. This results in a considerable increase in value and, if desired, a property with sellable apartments. 

In this way, HoogWonen creates sustainable homes for the 'Amsterdammer' of today, and for those of tomorrow.

So what are the benefits again?

 A simple overview...

Landlord
Found yield

As an owner, you get the most out of your property. Your rental income will remain at least the same and may even increase with a new tenant. In addition, the top floors are mailnly somewhat smaller. Therefore, the potential WOZ value may be limited by the purchase protection act. Therefore, the top floor may not be rented out by law. In this way you still get a return!

Overall increase of value

All homes in the building receive an optimal energy label. Additionally, the common areas are being refurbished. As a result, more rent can be charged and the overall value of the property will increase.

This also has a positive influence on the number of points the house receives for renting out, which makes it much more likely that the house will fall into the free sector.

Obtaining a split permit

To create a sellable home, a "splitsings" permit must be applied for, if applicable. For such a permit, the foundation needs to be audited. These activities are quite expensive and this way you have them checked out anyways!

If the entire property belongs to one owner, it is up to the owner how many apartment-rights should be created. Homes can thus be sold if desired. Therefore, as an owner, you always have the flexibility to sell. A convenient option to have on hand in uncertain times.

Free funding

Normally you would have to apply for a short-term loan with a high interest rate to transform the storage rooms or to refurbish your property at all. HoogWonen finances the entire operation. The risk is therefore always with us and there is no question of interest to be paid.

Retain control over the VVE

We understand that if you own an entire building, it is not attractive to create a VVE, which happens when it is splitted. That is why we always record in the division deed, that an owner of an entire property retains at least 80% of the number of votes in the VVE. This way, as a landlord, you retain full control over the property.

Tenant
Generous compensation

As a tenant you have to hand over the storage room. Depending on the surface, you can earn between €5,000 and €10,000.

Replacement Storage

If desired, HoogWonen can arrange a replacement storage room nearby. We'll even move all your stuff for you :)

Lower energybill

By making your home more sustainable, you get an optimal energy to get through those harsh winters. Depending on the situation, you will completely be switched from gas to electricity or you will get a hybrid heating system.

Mediation with your landlord

Important conversations with your landlord can be scary. HoogWonen conducts all conversations with the landlord on your behalf and vice versa. All interests are taken into account.

Refurbishing the stairwell

Since we are busy anyways, HoogWonen immediately refurbishes the stairwell and, if desired, a doorbell with intercom is installed to.
