Houses in the Netherlands as an investment object & # 8212; pros and cons.
From this article you will learn about some of the nuances of investing in Dutch real estate, and also get acquainted with its estimated prices.
The benefits of buying a house in the Netherlands.
In this country you can buy a very high-quality new housing. In this case, you do not have to worry about the fact that investments will depreciate: over the past few years, Holland property is steadily more expensive.
Apartments and office space is very easy to rent to tenants, especially in tourist areas. There are no restrictions on the choice of the tenant.
The procedure for registration of the purchased square meters in the property does not imply any overflow of money and time. In total, it takes about 5 working days, during which two basic operations should be performed (for comparison, in Russia these figures are 8 and 52, respectively).
Relatively little chance to become a victim of fraud. The process is organized very sensibly; if you follow all the prescribed actions by the mind, then do not throw a lot of money into the wind.
The main argument “against” is this: to live in the acquired property can only persons. who have the right to live in the Netherlands, or investors from the EU. Russian investors freely buy apartments and cottages, but come to them only as tourists.
Another disadvantage is high taxes on real estate (onroerende zaakbelasting), the size of which is set by local authorities. It is worth noting that the tax burden is facilitated by mandatory co-ownership of the tenant.
Finally, we must take into account the rather high cost of Dutch housing when it is sold. The offer now exceeds demand a little, therefore for a good house it is necessary to spread very impressive sum. However, Russians (especially – Muscovites) are not accustomed to this.
