Find housing in Amsterdam, Eindhoven, Rotterdam, Groningen, and other Dutch cities

A quick online search for houses to rent in the Netherlands may turn up a lot of results. But they are typically deceptive.


The housing market here is extremely tight, especially in the bigger cities. While the capacity of the Netherlands' housing market is increasing every year, it's still not large enough to host everyone looking for a home in a Dutch city.


Plus, renting or buying a residential property in the Netherlands as a relocating expat is not easy.


The Dutch housing market is a landlords' market: there are multiple applications for every home you find online.

You need a Dutch residence permit before you can rent a home in the Netherlands – this makes it very hard to look for properties before landing here.

The Dutch landlords and property managers are the ones making the choice between applicants.

We always recommend viewing a property before committing to a rental agreement – this is why we offer remote video viewings.

In cities like Amsterdam, Eindhoven, The Hague, Rotterdam, or Groningen the competition is even tougher. You may have to settle for a rental home that is outside your preferred area or outside your budget. We're here to make sure you make as few of these compromises as possible!


Since renting a property without a Dutch residence permit is nearly impossible, your only choices when you arrive seem to be staying in a hotel or in short-term corporate housing. Both of these options are extremely expensive and very uncomfortable.


Why not opt for saving money and enjoying comfort at the same time? Let our relocation professionals find the perfect home in the Netherlands for you!
