The majority of foreigners staying in the Netherlands live in rented apartments. They are often very expensive, and their quality leaves much to be desired. Not many people know that they could buy their own house in the Netherlands, and this is possible even is someone is working through a temporary work agency! The monthly fees for living in your own house are usually much lower than rent. Furthermore, by paying off a mortgage loan, the new owner slowly builds their own equity, and the real estate in the Netherlands will be fully paid off when he reaches retirement age. What an excellent retirement bonus!
