To the neighbourhoods

How our broker describes Amsterdam West...?

Amsterdam West is one of the youngest districts in Amsterdam. Officially, the city has only existed since 2010. This part of Amsterdam is especially attractive to starters. There is no lack of space and greenery in Amsterdam! This district is characterised by spacious neighbourhoods with lots of green. 

How our estate agent describes Amsterdam Houthavens...?

Houthaven is the new neighbourhood of Amsterdam. Once, it was one of the most important trading ports in the world. Later, it was transformed into a lively green island district. The diversity of buildings and users gives the Houthavens the character of a real Amsterdam neighbourhood.

How our estate agent describes Amsterdam Zuid-Oost...?

Amsterdam Zuid-Oost offers an exciting diversity of culture and food. The Johan Cruijff ArenA, Pathé ArenA cinema and major concert halls AFAS Live and Ziggo Dome are also located there. This bustling district has several highlights that you should not miss!

How our broker describes Amsterdam Zuid...?

The district of Zuid is characterised by its many sculptures. During the development, sculptors were closely involved in the project. They were mainly responsible for the public spaces in the district. Amsterdam Zuid is also the business centre of Amsterdam. This is thanks to the Zuidas, which is located in this district. There is also plenty of greenery to be found. Think of parks like the Vondelpark and the Amstelpark.

How our estate agent describes Amsterdam Oost...?

Amsterdam Oost has much to offer residents and visitors alike. There is no neighbourhood as diverse as Amsterdam Oost. The lively, multicultural neighbourhood is mainly known for its wide streets with 19th-century buildings, lots of green and many cultural attractions. Think of the lovely Oosterpark or the beautiful Tropenmuseum. There is entertainment for both young and old. You can walk, shop, play sports or go on a cultural discovery tour.

When you are in Amsterdam Oost, you have everything you need. For example, the varied shopping area of Oostpoort and Linnaeusstraat/Middenweg. Or the Dapperbuurt, the heart of this culturally diverse neighbourhood. Here you will find the famous Dapper Market. Fun fact, this market was put in the top ten best shopping streets in the world by National Geographic Traveler.

How our estate agent describes Amsterdam Noord...?

The district Amsterdam-Noord is separated from the rest of Amsterdam by the IJ river. A striking feature of Amsterdam North is the Overhoeks tower. An 80-metre high office building on the banks of the IJ. It was commissioned by Shell. Amsterdam Noord is also an important industrial area for petrochemicals and shipbuilding.

How our estate agent describes Amsterdam Oud-West...?

The neighbourhood Theaarsjes has grown enormously in popularity in recent years. Adjacent to Amsterdam Oud-West is the well-known Vondelpark. The many cafes and restaurants in the district also contribute to its rising popularity. Typical of this district are the beautiful porches that you find in the Helmersbuurt.

How our broker describes Amsterdam Centre...?

The centre of Amsterdam is characterised by its picturesque canals and beautiful Amsterdam houses. In the centre, you will find the Jordaan, Artis Zoo and many beautiful squares such as Waterlooplein, Dam Square and Rembrandt Square. The Kalverstraat, Leidsestraat and of course the nine streets make this part of Amsterdam perfect for a day of shopping. There are also many nice places to eat and drink. If you are fond of theatre and film, the centre of Amsterdam offers many possibilities in that area, such as Carré and the Stadsschouwburg. In short: the centre is full of atmosphere and we are happy to help you find your dream place here!

Frequently asked questions to a real estate agent in Amsterdam

When exactly are you negotiating?

To be in negotiation with the selling party, they must respond to your bid by:
- Making a counter-offer to your offer
- Clearly state that you are negotiating. When a broker tells you that he must discuss the offer with the seller, you are not yet in negotiations.

Is it allowed for a sales agent to schedule multiple viewings when negotiations are taking place?

Sure, negotiating does not have to lead to selling. In order to sell the house, the seller may also negotiate with several parties. This must then be clearly stated by the estate agent to all parties involved. In addition, it is valuable for the selling party when they know how much interest there is in the property. As a potential buyer, you can then make an offer, but an estate agent is not obliged to negotiate. Only when the negotiations with the current potential buyer have ended can the estate agent proceed to negotiate with the next one. The estate agent is, however, not permitted to make any announcements regarding the level of the bids.

Should the seller sell the house to me when I offer the asking price?

No, the seller does not have to sell the house when someone offers the asking price. The asking price should be seen as an "invitation to make an offer". This means that if you offer the asking price, the buyer may or may not accept the offer.

How does a sale come about?

In order to proceed with the purchase, the buyer and seller must agree on the most important matters. These include the price, delivery date, agreements on movable property and resolutive conditions. If the buyer and the seller agree on all the items, the notary will record the agreements in the purchase contract. Resolutive conditions are a point of attention. They must be included in the negotiations if you also want them to be described in the purchase agreement. Therefore, resolutive conditions are not automatically included. In addition, the supplementary agreements must be agreed by the buyer and the seller in order to draw up the purchase agreement. When the buyer and the seller have signed the sales agreement in writing, the law allows the buyer to change his mind. Within this legal reflection period, the buyer can refrain from buying. When the statutory cooling-off period has expired, the purchase is final, with the exception of the entry into force of resolutory conditions. If conditions have been discussed and they have been met, then the sale can be dissolved.

Can the asking price be increased at the time of negotiation?

Certainly, the asking price may be adjusted at any time. In addition, as a potential buyer, you can increase or decrease your offer at the time of the negotiation. As soon as the selling party makes a counter-offer, your previous offer expires and you can continue negotiating.

Is it allowed to change the system of negotiation when you are negotiating?

That is also permitted. When there are so many bids approaching or bidding the asking price, it is difficult for a seller to determine who can be considered the best buyer. On the advice of the estate agent, it can be decided to change the system of selling. For example, a choice can be made for a registration procedure. This gives all bidders an equal chance to make a bid.

With whom should the broker negotiate first?

This is determined by the seller together with the selling agent. There are therefore no rights granted to the first viewing or the first to make an offer.

Is it possible to ask advice from the selling estate agent?

No, that is not allowed. The selling estate agent is the representative of the selling party. When the selling broker would also give you advice, this would lead to a conflict of interest. If you want advice on buying a house, we recommend you use a buying agent.

An option, what does it mean?

An option can be used in two different ways:
- From a legal point of view, an option gives the possibility to conclude the purchase agreement by a unilateral declaration with another party. For example, the buyer may be given an extra week to think things over. Such an option is often used when buying a newly built house.
- The word option is often used incorrectly. Options are discussed by the selling estate agent when negotiating with the buyer. Think for example of the extra days of reflection before making an offer. For example, the buyer can gain extra insight into his financing. The options that are granted are discussed between the seller and the estate agent before they are given to the buyer. If another party registers with the estate agent, it will indicate that there is an option on the property.

What is an energy label and is it mandatory?

An energy label shows by means of classes (A++ to G) and different colours (Green to Red) how energy-efficient the property is in comparison to other properties of its kind. It is drawn up by a certified energy label advisor. An energy label is obligatory when selling a property (except for special cases).

Is the broker's commission included in the buyer's costs?

No, the estate agent's commission does not fall under "buyer's costs". All costs that fall under "buyer costs" are:
- Transfer tax
- Notary fees (such as for drawing up the deed and registering with the land registry) In addition to the above costs, there may also be costs arising from drawing up and registering the mortgage deed. Have you also engaged a buying agent? Then these costs are also for you. In most cases, these will be settled in the final settlement. The costs of the selling estate agent will be borne by the selling party.

How does one determine the number of square metres of a dwelling?

A number of measurement instructions have been agreed on branch-wide. NVM certified estate agents are obliged to comply with these instructions. What is included when calculating square metres?
- Living areas (such as bedrooms, toilets, living rooms, corridors and the meter cupboard)
- Enclosed spaces (garage, loft ladder)
- External storage (detached garage / shed)
In addition, there are a few points to which extra attention is paid. For example, the height must be at least 1.5m. In addition, the inside walls ARE measured, and the outside walls ARE measured. In addition, recesses of less than 0.5 m are not included in the calculation. There are many more rules that must be met. You can find them on www.nvm.nl
