de sleutel tot ieders droomhuis


Dutch estate agent

Buying a house in the Netherlands

Finding the right home is quite a challenge. You are suddenly faced with lots of questions. Where do you want to live? Which property would suit you best? An apartment or a detached house? How many rooms do you need? In which area do you want to live? Of course, you will want to know beforehand what is financially possible. If you have worked and lived in the Netherlands for six months or longer, you may be eligible to buy a house! However, there are a lot of things to consider. A buying agent or real estate agent can help you during the whole process. Dutch estate agents are called makelaar.

Real estate agent

Using a real estate agent is very common in the Netherlands, and is advisable, particularly for those who are new to the country or are not fluent in Dutch.  It’s common to have both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent, and each will have different roles in the transaction and have to be paid separately.  Why utilize a Dutch buying agent:
• Expertise in the housing market.
• Insight into the real value of properties.
• A lower purchase price than you would realise.
• The buying agent is able to translate for you.
• Essential information about the property regarding ownership and land registry. This is important as it is possible to buy a property without having the right to live in it.
• Representation of your interests as a buyer and help negotiating.
• Save time by having everything handled professionally.
• Professional completion of the deal.
