Coronavirus update

*Next event delayed until November 18th*

We have made the decision to delay our next How To Buy A House event until November 18th. We appreciate this may be an inconvenience for some, but the health and well-being of our guests and staff must take priority during this period. In the meantime, for information about coronavirus we recommend following the current guidance here: – please stay safe throughout these challenging times!

How to buy a house in the Netherlands

How to buy a house originated from our strong belief that expats are entitled to easily accessible and honest information about buying a house in the Netherlands. Finding unbiased information on the current housing market is difficult.

The internet is undeniably powerful, and with some persistence, you can find all the basic information you might need with a few internet searches, but what if you have personal questions or want to know more about, for example, why it is so difficult to buy a house in Amsterdam? Or what you can personally borrow from the bank?

How can you help me?

You can ask all these questions and more at the How to buy a house event in the Netherlands!

We will provide all the information you need in order to buy your dream house. Feel at home while shopping around; we will make sure to have some drinks, snacks and even a nanny service ready for you so you’ll have nothing to worry about and be able to talk with our partners. All the experts you need to meet under one roof. Ask them questions related to your particular situation. Buy better by being better informed.

The spotlight should be on our visitors and their needs, so we made sure to create the perfect environment for that:

  • We provide a guide for each visitor to help them get started;
  • Each visitor will have access to each and every one of the experts;
  • We handpick every expert, who we make sure are “the real deal”;
  • We work with local and national companies who are all able to provide the best advice;
  • We all speak English as well as other languages.

Our team will be available to you throughout the whole event, ready to help you out.

If you have any remaining questions, you can easily send us an email, or join our vibrant Facebook Community!

See you at the next event!

Expat Oriented Organisation Certification

How To Buy A House believes that buying a property in the Netherlands as an expat can be made simple. Buying a home is one of the most significant financial decisions that people make in their life. It’s momentous and daunting in one’s own country, let alone in a foreign country!

You can find a lot of information online and from expat “experts”. However, are all of these companies trustworthy? Can you rely on their advice? It’s essential that you get the correct information so you can make the right investment. So, we started the Expat Oriented Organisation register (EOO) to help you out.

The EOO certification ensures that expats are working with organisations who are credible, provide outstanding services and understand the needs of expats. Companies must meet our criteria, to ensure that they will deliver the best results for you – and will have an appreciation for your requirements.
