Question about Housing? Ask Barry Burgemeester, Real Estate Agent *expat expert*

Why is it so difficult to buy a house in Amsterdam? In Amsterdam less than 30% of all real estate is privately owned property. The rest consist of social housing, offices or other types of property. If you combine that information with the low interest rates we are currently seeing, the tax incentives for expats and the huge demand, you will realise that finding and buying a house in Amsterdam is quite a challenge. If you want to do business, the best thing to do is to get in touch with a real estate agent and team up. Guys like us know the market and know about rules and regulations.
