Buying a house in Amsterdam
Which house will be your new home?
Are you losing your way in the offer of houses, town houses and apartments for sale in Amsterdam? Not sure what would really be the perfect house for you? Or what makes a good offer? Or if that property is really a wise investment or could it have hidden problems? What you need is a sound buying agent. Preferably one who’s intimately familiar with Amsterdam’s housing market. Shall we get to know each other?
Taking a deep breath in the frantic housing market
There are plenty of houses and apartments for sale in our beautiful capital. And there are easily as many buyers. Resulting in today’s infamous frantic housing market. In such a situation, it’s difficult to determine what property in Amsterdam is a perfect match for your situation. Often, there’s little time to decide, and without any experience, it’s hard to know what to look out for. Sound buying agents know exactly what to do and with a little luck manage to win you some extra time, so you can take a deep breath before having to make a decision. I’m one of those buying agents. I’m Marthe Beusekamp, so pleased to meet you!
Knowing what houses will come to market
For my clients, I find those houses that are a match for their wish list and budget. I often know what properties will come to market even before they actually do. This gives you a little room to breathe because you don’t have to contend with other potential buyers immediately. I also have an excellent network that trusts me. Other estate agents know that I’m upfront and serious, making a negotiation about how much time you have to decide more effective than if you had to do that yourself.
I know my way around, work quickly, and know what to expect when you’re searching for a property in specific areas. That means I can get you through the required paperwork and inspections quickly, so you’ll know what to expect if you buy the property you’re looking at. And above all, what’s an appropriate offer.
Overbidding is the new negotiation, especially in Amsterdam. If you’ve set your sights on a house or apartment, and the inspection has shown it’s a good buy, how do you decide on what offer to make? Today, that means how much you should go over the asking price. Without experience, it’s hard to know what the right offer is – what’s enough yet still within reason? Overbidding or bidding in general is exciting and scary, even when you’re relying on an experienced buying agent, but at least you’ll know that you’re making a realistic offer. Which will help relieve some of the tension.
