BUYING A HOME
Buying a house or apartment is probably one of the biggest financial decisions you’ll ever take in your life. As an expat it can be even more of a challenge, especially for those who aren’t very familiar with the Netherlands and its diverse neighborhoods. Our specialised Expat Brokers will contact you, discuss your wishes and match those with the desired neighborhoods and properties. They have also a lot of knowledge when it comes to legislation and specific financial issues around buying a home in the Netherlands..
RENTING A HOME
If you’re new to the Netherlands and are looking for rented housing, the safest and most efficient way to find your home is to engage a MVA Certified Expat Broker, experienced in helping expats. Based on your needs, budget and family composition, the agent can offer you excellent tailor-made advice, such as information about current availabilities and about which neighborhoods are most suitable for you and your specific needs and desires. The agent will negotiate to get you the best rental price and contractual terms for the home you wish to rent. They will also advise you on the legal aspects of renting a home in the Netherlands. Before you commission the MVA agent to work for you, he will issue a quote for his services. Once the negotiations are successful and a suitable home has been found, a lease will be drawn up. Your estate agent will be there for you when the keys are handed over. When you move into your new home he will ensure that the property is transferred fully to you as negotiated..
I bought a property and I am leaving The Netherlands, what are my options? It’s also wisest to use an MVA agent if you wish to sell or rent out your home in the Netherlands. Each MVA broker has unique connections to both online and offline networks which can help you find a buyer or tenant as soon as possible, and at the right price. In some cases a valuation report may be necessary. Every MVA agent is also a registered estate agent/valuer and can draw up a certified valuation report for you within a few days. When renting out your property while you are abroad you might require a property manager to represent you on location and to maintain the quality of your investment. The MVA was established in 1877. Besides representing the interests of the estate agents affiliated with us, we systematically provide our agents with all up to date and relevant information around the constantly developing real estate world..
