Buying a house: where to start?

25 May 2020 16:00 - Location: Postponed

Due to the Coronavirus crisis, the workshop is postponed to October 2020.


Even though renting in the Netherlands offers flexibility and certain rights, buying a property is considered to be a smart financial investment. However, there are a lot of things to take into account. Buying a house is a complicated process and there are many things to think about. During this information meeting an independent mortgage advisor and a real estate agent will share their knowledge and expertise. 

Here are a few reasons why you could think about buying a house in the Netherlands:

  • Pride of ownership; owning a house offers a sense of stability and security
  • Control over the property 
  • Great financial incentives / tax benefits
  • Can be a smart investment

Did you know that there are also options as a PhD student or postdoc to apply for a mortgage and to buy your own house? PhD students who are already searching for their own property, based on the idea that they have a good future perspective with their (educational) background. Nevertheless, in practice it often appears that PhD students (and postdocs) have difficulty obtaining a mortgage. To learn more about your options, make sure to register for this information meeting.
