Buying a house

We have years of experience working with expats and can offer our property market expertise to assist you on your way to becoming a home owner.

When you embark on the exciting time of purchasing a new home, you need to go through a time-consuming process with several third parties involved such as the real estate agent, the mortgage advisor, the civil law notary, and the tax consultants. To help you keep abreast with all the statutory requirements, we can guide you through the steps of becoming a home owner in the Netherlands.

Buying a house
At SEM Makelaars we will create a profile of your requirements at a preliminary meeting. Based on this we will track down the most suitable properties, arrange viewings, suggest areas where there’s room for negotiation and offer advice on potential pitfalls.

Selling a house

During a personal visit with the real estate agent, we start by explaining our service and options. During that same visit we value your house for free and provide you afterwards with a quotation. We collect information regarding your preferences with regard to selling the property and provide you with a selling strategy. 

When you decide to actually sell your house, we love to help you by taking care completely over all the handlings. Furthermore we provide: professional photography, NEN measure report, making of the floor plans, thorough documentation review, organisation of viewings, advice, execution and guidance with the notary acts. We naturally make sure this all will lead to best selling price possible of your house or appartment!

Why our expertise

Over the years we have gained a lot of experience in dealing with the desires and needs of expats. We are aware of the differences you encounter once you set foot in a different country. We realise that helping our clients with that extra little bit of information to make them feel at home is essential for a happy and settled stay.
