There are a number of significant rental differences in the three big cities. These differences range from prices to the dynamics of the market. Perfect Housing has consultants in each city, available to provide the most up-to-date information and help regarding your chosen city. During the annual 'I am not a tourist fair' by Expatica, Perfect Housing hosted a workshop during which we shared our insights into the rental markets in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague.
Renting in Amsterdam
The capital city of the Netherlands is both extraordinary and expensive. Amsterdam is the most expensive of the three major rental cities in the Netherlands. However, the gorgeous 18th century build canal houses and the vibrant atmosphere attract many. The many diverse areas in Amsterdam ensure that the city has something to offer everyone. Besides the price differences, the market in Amsterdam is a "fast" market. Decisions need to be made quickly and everything runs at a very high pace. Something to keep in mind is that there are strict rules to protect lower income households and this may consequently also affect the housing market available to an expat.
Renting in The Hague
The Hague is the city of peace, justice and diplomats. The city houses many expats and the housing market offers more value for money. Family houses are generally more affordable, and it is a beautiful city to live in. It is a slower market than in Amsterdam
Renting in Rotterdam
Rotterdam is a large city in the Netherlands that is growing consistantly in many ways. The rental prices are the lowest of the three big cities and there are a large number of spacious and comfortable apartments available. Rotterdam has grown into a significant commercial city, with a growing number of international offices.
