Overview of housing societies and real estate agents
Phone: +45 72 18 55 00
Bo Midtvest is a non-profit housing society. This means that we are responsible for providing low-cost, modern housing for anyone in need of a home.
All the money that we receive from tenants goes back into modernizing our homes.
Through an elected residence committee, all residents have direct influence on the developments on the estate. Participation is completely voluntary. Many estates offer social activities for children and adults that are free to participate in.
When you live with us, we take care of the daily maintenance. We have a great team of caretakers, who look after the grounds, and help you out, if a problem occurs in your home.
