I am looking for suitable housing in the Netherlands

Finding suitable housing in the Netherlands is probably one of the most important but time consuming aspects of relocating here. We all have different requirements and preferences when searching for a property and our comfort is dependent on finding the right fit.

Housing in the Netherlands

Finding affordable rental housing in the Netherlands, and especially in the bigger cities, can be downright frustrating at the moment. The shortage of rental properties in the private housing market is very much noticeable. Rental housing prices have been increasing for quite a while now. But, Settle Service can streamline this process and help find the best place for you!

Agencies vs the Internet

The internet is helpful to get an idea of the current housing supply in the Netherlands. However, we advise to not rely blindly on this medium. Housing websites can post unavailable properties or even illegal properties. One important tip: When it seems too good to be true, it usually is!

Renting an illegal property may have severe consequences, such as sudden eviction and financial fines. So, be careful and don’t shy away from asking advice from locals.

When renting via a housing agency administration costs are involved, but in our opinion a worthy price for security. Another option is to hire an agent to search the entire market on your behalf. In this case, a full commission is applicable.

Home Finding Assistance

Settle Service offers a number of home finding assistance programmes to maximize the success of finding you a place to call home.

Based on your budget, requirements and preferences, we will provide you with professional advice, set up a home viewing or a tour of viewings, and accompany you on the tour (if agreed upon). Settle Service can negotiate the rental conditionsscreen the contract and coordinate the move-in.

“Very fast, efficient and straight forward online service. Thank you Evelien and Settle Service team.“
