Where can I find a suitable home in the Netherlands?

There’s one site that’s the best for searching for houses and apartments: Pararius, where only legitimate real estate agents can put up houses and apartments to rent. This ensures that you won’t be ripped off. The deposit is generally twice the monthly rent and you’ll get it back when you leave. Don’t try to rent the cheapest apartments, it usually means that there’s something dodgy going on. When you’re sure that you want to stay here for a longer period of time, the best option is to buy a house. This will save a lot in the costs and you’ll build up an extra savings pot, because of the compulsory mortgage repayments in the Netherlands.
