Rent a house

If it is not possible to buy a house and you want to look into other options, maybe we can help you out and find you a reliable rental agent.

First: figure out how much you can afford. Take a look at your monthly income. Experts recommend only spending between 25%-35% of your after-tax income on rent and housing.
The liberalization threshold (the limit that determines whether a home is in the social or free sector) is just like previous years at € 710.68 euros. Keep in mind that some apartments have income requirements that will put you out of the running altogether.
If you can afford to rent a house above this amount you might be able to hire a free sector house.

Second: figure out where you want to live. Remember that finding a rentel in Amsterdam is more difficult than other cities. You might want to consider cities as Hoofddorp or Haarlem as well.
