Although you hear on the news that the housing market is cooling down, we do not really see this happening in Leiden yet. Maybe this comes as no surprise, considering that recently Leiden ranked the third most attractive Dutch city to live in.
What has changed is that overbidding on houses is happening less than, let's say, half a year ago. Now you need less savings to overbid. In this regard, it is important to know exactly how much money you can borrow.
The Netherlands has been going through a housing crisis for 5-10 years. The consequences of this crisis are numerous, from rising house prices to the current housing shortage. Especially in the Randstad and the major cities, finding a place to live can be difficult and expensive. However, the chances of getting a house have improved.
