Invest at Upgrade Estate

You invest in green housing that has been developed with a focus on added societal and social value. Our own management and rental service gives both tenants and investors peace of mind.

All about investing



Investing in student rooms - classic formula

We also have a limited offer of individual rooms you can invest in. Each month, you will receive the rent in your account, but we will also relieve you of the rental and management of your investment. An interesting formula for investing with your company.
