Our added value

With a buying specialist from Verra Makelaars by your side, the search for your new home will be nothing short of a positive experience. Just like a selling agent represents the seller, your buying agent has your interests at heart in the transaction. Your real estate agent opens doors to listings that fully fit your search profile, that may not even be on the market yet or require a well-developed renovation and financial plan, but would suit your needs. We look beyond your own search and put everything in place to be able to buy your dream home for you. Multiple appointments with different estate agents are no longer necessary, Verra Makelaars fully unburdens you. You save time by explaining your wishes once to our office, and we will find the best possible options for you. Your buying agent guides you through the entire process, accompanies you to viewings and is always available for questions and advice. When you sign the contract, you are assured of the most favorable conditions for your new home. 

Moving in seven steps

The buying process

Introduction

Meet your buying agent, digitally or in person. We will discuss the possibilities, your current situation and answer your questions.

Search profile

With all your wishes and requirements, we start looking for suitable homes in the search area. On and 'off' the market. 

Viewing 

Your buying agent will accompany you to viewings. We pay special attention to details and point out advantages and disadvantages of the property and location.

Research 

We take a critical look into any legal and technical issues and advise on the price and bidding strategy.

Negotiations

Found your dream home? We will conduct the negotiations with the selling party on your behalf. Always in consultation with you. 

Purchase agreement

Before you sign the contract, we will check it and go through it with you for any ambiguities or questions you may have. 

Inspection and transfer of keys 

Before receiving the keys at the notary's office, we accompany you to the final inspection. You will then receive the keys to your new home!

Moving day

Do you still have questions about the property or need help with practical matters such as gas, water and electricity requests? Do not hesitate to contact your buying agent.

What they say about us

Steffen, Ashley en Niek hebben ons goed begeleid tijdens het verkoopproces van mijn woning. Alles werd duidelijk uitgelegd waardoor ik van alles op de hoogte was. Toen mijn woning online kwam, was de markt net aan het veranderen wat het wat spannender maakten. Uiteindelijk is mijn woning toch nog snel en goed verkocht waar ik super blij mee ben! Heel erg bedankt voor de goede service en ik zou mijn huis volgende keer weer door jullie laten verkopen!

Mevr. Melissa Jasperse - selling

Being new to the country, we (me and my wife) defintely were no accustomed to the purchase process of properties in NL. Niek from Verra Makelaars was extremely helpful by guiding us carefully through out the process. Although timelines were a challanege but Niek really perservered in finding us a home quickly. Excellent service!

Een funda gebruiker (zoeken en aankoop) - buying

I was unable to easily view houses due to work restrictions. Niek at Verra was able to work miracles around my very restrictive schedule. Not only did he offer to view on my behalf, but he was able to get appointments outside of the scheduled appointment. He was flexible, took the time to understand my needs and was able to provide solid advice on the final bidding process.

Iwan Post van Verra heeft ons goed geholpen met het bezichtigen en beoordelen van verschillende panden. Zijn inzichten over ieder pand waren erg behulpzaam om te oordelen of de locatie, prijs en staat van het pand in orde waren. Uiteindelijk voor deze woning gekozen waar nog veel werk aan verricht moest worden, maar Iwan heeft geholpen om daar ook een gepaste prijs voor te bieden waardoor we genoeg budget overhielden voor de verbouwing.

Een funda gebruiker (zoeken en aankoop) - buying

We had two goals with respect to the sale of our house: to sell it within a reasonable amount of time and to sell it for a good price. Both goals were met by having Niek and his team as the selling agent! They worked closely with us, answered our questions, and used their network, knowledge and experience to sell our house. We highly recommend them!

Housing in the Netherlands

For expats

Contact Verra Makelaars for a smooth transaction in The Netherlands for yourself or one of your employees. Rather than the ‘average’ Dutch real estate agency, we like to go the extra mile with our services for international clients. We bear in mind that internationals are not fluent in the Dutch language and standard course of events when buying a home. They might not know certain routes to take and obligations to fulfill and do not have the network of local agents and contractors. Our relocation managers ensure that expats can find a suitable home and can settle in their new city in no time. We answer questions, advise on facilities and practical and administrative matters such as registrations, bank accounts and international schools. Our team of specialists has extensive experience in assisting companies with the placement of one to several employees and their families in big cities like The Hague and Rotterdam.
