Amsterdam made easy
Moving to a foreign country is a rewarding experience and Amsterdam is an amazing city for both long stay and short stay.
However, the life of an expat living abroad is not always easy and can cause some stress as well.
In fact, we have all experienced challenges when moving to another country and trying to accomplish even the simplest tasks.
There is a great deal to think about and remember: tax services for expats (e.g. tax help and tax advice), accountant, financial services, mortgage, immigration services, etc.
Not to mention essential matters such as finding a home, other professional services, rental and expat services in general.

Expat housing in Amsterdam is very challenging.
Housing shortage in Amsterdam and high demand have resulted in significant prices increase and troubles for expats.
Moreover, apartments for rent are available for a very short time.
Even on the buying market, banks are currently enough generous with granting mortgage and this carries both positive and negative sides.
Important matters with regards to expat housing Amsterdam, such as taking out a mortgage and finding suitable houses, can all create stress for you as an expat.
Our housing services was developed to make it easier for you to settle in Amsterdam and find a place you can call home.
Problem is that negotiation power of a single individual looking for room(s) for rent and availability of room sharing are low.
It is a lot easier to find apartments with two bedroom and good quality standard.
Hence, the idea to start “Find Your Roomie” to find a roomie match and allow room sharing.
This will open options to get access to more properties with higher quality standard.
