Buy a property

Buying a property can be a difficult, time consuming and emotional process. Let our experienced team guide you each step of the way and provide you with our insight, experience and research to help you find the right property, negotiate the best price and terms for your new home and to minimize the amount of stress for you.

We are able to show you properties listed through any agency so we act as a convenient single point of contact in your search for a home.

We are high service, low pressure real estate agents focused on satisfied clients rather than a quick deal and we always keep your best interests in mind.

A brief overview of what we can do for you as your Buying Agent:

  • Discuss and prioritize your search criteria
  • Describe the current market, neighborhoods and housing types/options
  • Provide mortgage and financing overview and options
  • Research suitable properties matching your specific requirements
  • Send you daily listings of the newest properties (including properties not in Funda)
  • Assist you with translations if necessary as most property information is only available in Dutch
  • Work with our extensive network to find new and unlisted properties matching your needs
  • Call selling agencies to set up appointments for viewings
  • Accompany you to property viewings and provide you with our experienced advice to take the emotion out of the equation and frankly point out the pros and cons of each property
  • Bid and negotiate on your behalf to achieve not only the best price but also the most favorable terms and conditions

  • Research important items such as the foundation, land lease/erfpacht, VVE/Owners association documents and financing, Splitsingsakte, Milieufax/environmental reports, woonbestemming/zoning, huishuidelijkregelments, sleutelverklarings, and much more…
  • Accompany you to the notary to sign the purchase contract (koopakte)

  • Provide you information and access to our wide range of service providers such as builders, painters, designers, architects, lawyers, notaries, mortgage brokers, taxateurs, movers, surveyors, home inspectors, etc… who speak English and meet the high expectations of our clients
  • Accompany you to the property for the final inspection and meter readings
  • Accompany you again to the notary for the closing and key exchange
  • Answer any follow-up questions and issues even once the deal is complete. We do not forget about you once the deal is done!
