5 REASONS WHY VON POLL REAL ESTATE OPENED A 3RD DUTCH BRANCH IN THE HAGUE
Amsterdam may not be ‘the perfect place to live’ for everyone. And that is why Von Poll Real Estate is broadening its horizons! As you know, our enthusiastic team of real estate professionals has been guiding local and international clients with the sale, purchase and lease of homes in the capital city for many years from the two offices in Amsterdam. With the client’s wish to expand the search area, the Von Poll estate agents went looking for that new perfect spot. In this blog, they explain why The Hague immediately caught their eye.
For those working in law or politics, The Hague is the place to be. Besides the Dutch national government, The Hague also houses the Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, 115 embassies and consulates and more than 130 international organisations. This ‘knowledge hub’ makes The Hague a desirable place to live and work. Students from renowned universities and colleges stay in the area and The Hague regularly welcomes expats and their families.
From Spui to the Port of Scheveningen and from Binnenhof to the development of the former industrial area the Binckhorst: The Hague is a pioneer in sustainable and future-proof construction and renovation of real estate. In doing this, the city is creating more living space and vacant commercial properties are being transformed into innovative residential areas.
Although The Hague is the third largest city in the country, it is by no means the most expensive city to live in. An owner-occupied or rented house in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Utrecht is still relatively more expensive than in The Hague. This makes the real estate market dynamic and challenging for all parties. There is a wide and varied supply of listings in all segments of the market, and a suitable (international) occupant for each available listing out there. Someone who knows the market has The Hague’s ‘global market’ at his feet.
The Hague has excellent accessibility from the rest of the country. With several train stations (Hollands Spoor, Den Haag Central and Den Haag NOI), Rotterdam/The Hague International Airport and various motorways around the centre, the city is easily accessible. For those who prefer to live in peace and quiet but wish to be close to the lively city centre, Voorburg, Wassenaar, Leidschendam and Rijswijk offer the perfect solution. The various town districts also offer all the peace, liveliness or allure that a new buyer or expat could want.
The Hague can only be described as ‘we have something for everyone’. The city has 11 kilometres of coastline and no less than one third of the city consists of green space. The city remains high on the wishlist of both international clients and house hunters from other Dutch cities because of its pleasant and historic city centre and the various districts with their own distinctive characteristics.
With its international character, innovative housing solutions, the peace and quiet of the coast and the green and general allure of the Hofstad, The Hague was a logical step for opening a new Von Poll Real Estate office. Amsterdam and The Hague have various similarities and differences, and with the new office our experts can help existing clients who want to make the move from Amsterdam to The Hague.
At this new office you will find Eertze Houpst (Register Makelaar en Taxateur) and Hannah van Wensen (candidate Register Makelaar). They have the ambition to help new and existing customers in a stress-free manner to find or sell the perfect house. These two real estate experts make customers feel at home because they know the market and the city. Thanks to Hannah’s international experience, they understand the wishes and needs of expats and are therefore able to provide excellent guidance to this group as well.
