Fund your future home with the most favourable mortgage deal
The best mortgage for your home The housing market in the Netherlands is finally improving again, especially in the Zuidas of Amsterdam. Buying a house in the booming area in Amsterdam is currently much cheaper than renting one, as more and more expats are discovering. TEXT: JANINE STERENBORG | PHOTOS: DE KREDIETER
Buying a house is not easy. Or rather: getting the right mortgage is not easy. You don’t have to find one on your own though. The small and highly educated team of the independent mortgage advisors at de Kredieter, based in the central lobby of the World Trade Center area in Amsterdam South, can help you find the best mortgage tailored to your needs. “Instead of spending a lot of money on every single piece of advice you get at separate banks and insurance companies, you can reduce the costs by letting us do the job,” says de Kredieter founder and co-owner Frank Bakker, “and it saves you a lot of time too!” De Kredieter is the ideal mortgage advisor for expats who are house hunting in Amsterdam and are looking for advice with a fair price tag. Bakker: “We’re experienced in working with expats. We know which
banks offer the financing they need, we speak international languages, we’re very flexible and if you have any questions, you can simply drop by at the office.” “It’s important to be well informed before entering the housing market, so you know exactly in what price range to shop, in order to deal with acceptable monthly charges later,” says Bakker. Based on their expertise and 20 years of experience, there is no doubt de Kredieter will find you the best deal. The company works with almost every bank and insurance company in the Netherlands, which allows them to find the cheapest mortgage with the best conditions on the market.
All of de Kredieter’s advisers are professionals. They are for example affiliated with the Dutch federation for financial planners (Federatie Financieel Planners). This means they are obligated to update their knowledge annually, so you can expect a clear and trustworthy planning and explanation. What mortgage is best for you depends on many factors, all of which de Kredieter will take into account. Bakker says: “Buying cheap can get very expensive when you don’t understand the possible nasty fine print for example. Don’t invent the wheel yourself. After all, you’re dealing with a LOT of money!” www.kredieter.nl
“After our search, we’ll present the most suitable mortgage and explain the up- and downsides of all aspects,” says Bakker.
