Types of homes:
There are a range of homes in Vienna from which to choose: from charming historic buildings to modern homes and urban apartments. If you are seeking a rental property in a central district, you will compete with students and tourists staying for days at a time. The districts of Josefstadt (8th district) and Leopoldstadt (2nd district) are some of the closest residential districts to the city center. The 8th district, Josefstadt, has many foreigners and students around the University of Vienna. The second district, Leopoldstadt, is attractive for its large park, well-known ferris wheel and close proximity to the city center.
Rental costs vary among the districts of Vienna. Rents are highest in the central district Innere Stadt (1st District) and decrease as you move further away. Single family homes can be found further away from the city center in 13th, 18th and 19th District. The 19th and 22nd district you have a large expat community and various international schools.
The rental market for apartments is very well regulated and favors the tenants in Austria. The Tenancy Act (Mietrechtsgesetz) covers conditions such as minimum notice periods and sets rents for rental apartments according to the facilities and furnishings provided. Rents for single family homes and newly built condominiums are not generally covered by the Act.
