A home is more than just a flat
We at M2-Kodit think that a home is more than just a flat. Living costs cannot consume all your money, because you must be able to enjoy life.
This is why we aim to develop the services we offer to our tenants, the shared facilities in our buildings, and opportunities for positive interaction with your neighbours and other local residents.
The goal of M2 is to offer Finns rental homes they can afford. We do not seek to make a profit. Therefore our rents are determined by ARA’s absorption principle and are reasonable. At the moment, the demand for flats is particularly high in the Helsinki Region and in other growth centres.
What is M2?
M2-Kodit is a company owned by the Y-Säätiö Group, focusing on reasonably-priced ARA rental dwellings. We have almost 10 400 apartments in 30 cities or municipalities.

What is Y-Foundation?
Y-Foundation (Y-Säätiö), the owner of M2-Kodit, was founded in 1985.
The founding members of the Y-Foundation:
- the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities
- the City of Espoo
- the City of Helsinki
- the City of Tampere
- the City of Turku
- the City of Vantaa

- the Finnish Construction Trade Union
- the Finnish Association for Mental Health

Y-Foundation offers rental flats in over 50 cities, towns or municipalities to people with difficulties finding a flat.
The flats are acquired by buying single housing units in limited liability housing companies and by constructing rental buildings around the country. The focal points for the rental flat acquisition are the Helsinki Region and other big cities or growth centres.
Y-Foundation offers two dwelling options: the Y Homes (Y-Kodit) meant for special groups, and the regular M2-Kodit rental flats. The funding model and target group for the two options are a little different from one another, but they share the same central operating principle: all people need a home of their own.
Y-Foundation does active research and development work to eradicate homelessness.
