The Housing Market in Amsterdam is a tough cookie
It seems like the housing market in Amsterdam has no limits. Whereas in cities like London, Stockholm, Sydney and Melbourne the prices finally saw a little decrease – Amsterdam just went further ahead with going crazy with their housing prices. In Amsterdam prices rose by as much as 72 percent in five years; in the rest of the Netherlands, this was 30 percent.
The underlying developments are identical: a migration from rural areas to the city, an influx of investors and international capital and the influx of international employees (hey, that’s you, but you got to live somewhere as well <3 ). As a result: enormous pressure on the housing market in Amsterdam, or the rest of the Netherlands for that matter, and buying a house in the capital gets a little bit more difficult once more.
But buying a house in Amsterdam still gets you the good life
As they say in Dutch; ‘you can’t live in money’ (they also say ‘you can’t live in bullshit’ which is pretty true as well). So you might just try to go for that house in Amsterdam, and you then need all the help you can get. The ‘How to buy a House’ event is there to help those who are determined to buy a house in Amsterdam.
