BUYING A HOUSE

Perhaps you are an expat who will stay longer in The Netherlands than you first had in mind. It is likely that your rent is quite high and now you consider to buy a home in The Netherlands. Maybe you think buying a house can be a complicated process, especially for first time buyers. You don’t know the laws and the regulations and doing so in a foreign country in another language actually increases the complexity of the process even more. Many people who would like to buy a house have fears. And rightfully so, as buying a home is usually the largest investment a person ever makes. You might also worry that you are overpaying for a property for more than what the house is worth.

Or you might live abroad and like to purchase an investment property that you can rent out. Perhaps you have no idea if you are allowed to buy property in The Netherlands in the first place.  How to determine what the best area is, whether you can let a property and what kind of property  the highest yield will get? Maybe you don’t know about this system in The Netherlands were you are restricted in rental prices?
