The housing market in The Hague
The housing market in The Hague is diverse: from Kijkduin to Ypenburg, Benoordenhout, the vibrant city centre and the melting pot of cultures around Zuiderpark. You can live in a beautiful old building with classic gables in the city centre, in a contemporary newbuild development in Leidschenveen, a high-rise close to the station, or beside the dunes in Vogelwijk. The Hague is a city of contrasts. Whether you opt for sand or moorlands, there is always a neighbourhood to suit you.
The Hague is a wonderful city in which to live and work. At Viisi Den Haag, we know that only too well. Historic districts close to the centre, such as Zeeheldenkwartier, Bezuidenhout, Willemspark, Archipelbuurt and Regentessekwartier have become incredibly popular in recent years. Most homes in these areas consist of conversions; a ground floor apartment and two upstairs apartments, or three or four apartments above one another.
What are the latest developments on the housing market in The Hague?
Not only are the mortgage advisors that work at Viisi university-educated, they know the housing market in The Hague well. We monitor all developments and trends closely so that we can always give you appropriate mortgage advice. In recent years, we have seen the historical areas around the centre of The Hague become incredibly popular. What typifies these neighbourhoods is that most homes consist of conversions. That is a building with a ground floor apartment and two upstairs apartments. Many house buyers rightly question exactly what the situation is regarding the maintenance of such a building. Who is responsible? And how does the provision of a mortgage work in these cases? We often receive such queries at Viisi. We have the necessary experience to give you appropriate mortgage advice.
What we also see in The Hague is that property prices are rising more slowly than in other popular cities like Amsterdam and Utrecht. These cities are very popular with first time buyers on the housing market, because there are many colleges and universities there. This is not so much the case in The Hague, because the court-capital has no universities. The logical consequence of this is that the housing market in The Hague is under a little less pressure. That does not change the fact that finding a suitable home can still be an enormous task that entails a great deal of planning. In addition to obtaining mortgage advice, you can also attend a seminar at Viisi in The Hague. The seminar is entirely free of charge and gives you a good idea of your options on the housing market in The Hague in just one evening.
