Welcome in Maastricht

Maastricht is one of the oldest cities in The Netherlands

When moving to the Netherlands and especially to the Maastricht area I can help and accompany you with your search of a new suitable home and offer you support throughout the process. (Whether it’s a rental or a purchase home.)

Choosing where to live is one of the most important decisions you will make, as each town or neighbourhood is unique. Before arriving, consider your most important lifestyle needs. Many of these decisions will depend on what your budget is (or that of your company), and whether you have children or not.

Your personal agent

My name is Maarten Buytendijk and I’m a local resident of the city of Maastricht. I’m a real estate agent for quite some time now and worked with lots of expats. What I noticed was that most expats didn’t have a personal advisor who helped them with their move to the Netherlands.

Having a family myself I know how important it is to find a suitable home. Especially in a foreign country where everything’s new and different. I can relate to your needs and therefor I will help you in the best possible way.

I know all the ins and outs of Maastricht (and the Maastricht region) and I’ll be happy to assist you to feel at home and settle down in our town.

As your estate agent  I will:

  • support you during various viewings
  • conduct negotiations with the listing agent on your behalf
  • help you find a suitable notary’s office and financial advisor (purchase)
  • walk you through the deed of purchase and the list of movable property
  • explain to you the taxes owed in the Dutch tax system, as well as any other costs involved when purchasing or renting a home.

It is also possible, in mutual consultation of course, to visit viewings on your behalf before you arrive in the Netherlands. In other words:

I assist you from A to Z in purchasing a home. Please contact me to discuss your needs and options how to find you a suitable home. I will gladly make a suitable estimate without engagement.
