How are you different from a real estate agent?
A Real Estate Agency will provide you with property listing primarily from their portfolio. Your need will not be their primary goal. Their goal is to sell the property and make a commission on it. You will need to invest your own time and energy to do the market research, view the properties, make your own judgement when comparing properties, list the pros and cons, research the neighborhoods, etc. You will need to be be present at every step of the process. Furthermore, once the property is registered to your name you will be on your own.

Urban address will assist you and keep your interest as their primary objective for every step of the way. From the very beginning of the process all the way till the end; be it filling your property taxes, applying for utilities, registering with the owner’s association, or renovating your property and finding you a tenant, all can be done under one roof, and even remotely if needed.

Urban Address saves your time, money, energy and gives you piece of mind.

How does the process work?
We offer you to chose from either Basic or Premium Plan, and we also provide renovation and finding a tenant services.

Do you only focus in properties in Prague?
We can also assist you in acquiring a real estate outside of Prague, based on an individual agreement.
