Sonkajärvi fills the needs of the modern man. An own health centre, children’s day care, libraries, fast network connections and good traffic routes are in a package with a lively, creative, and safe countryside where humane values are in high value.
The supply of different land lots is comprehensive and includes a range of close to nature holdings. The dwelling stock of Sonkajärvi consists mainly of one-family houses and terraced houses. It is possible to combine the freedom from care and ease of a rental flat with the space of a terraced house.
The council estates are managed and distributed by the publicly owned company, Sonkakoti Oy. Sonkakoti Oy takes also care of the other municipal services regarding housing. It looks after the most common subsidies, loans and grants for building, renovating and living and gives general guidance and advice.
Sonkakoti Oy owns 306 rental flats, 75 per cents of which are in terraced houses, in Sonkajärvi and Sukeva. The size of the flats ranges from small one-room flats to spacious four-room flats in semi-detached houses.
In the recent years Sonkajärvi has invested assertively in holiday housing. Over 900 hundred holiday homes and several hundred lakeside land lots in the development plans of the municipality are a result of this work. There are several rental cottages in the municipality as well.
