Introduction

The Netherlands is a member of the European Union located in Western Europe bordering Belgium and Germany and is one of the most environmentally friendly countries in Europe.

There are no restrictions on foreigners buying property in the country, however, the property market is rather flat and there is no evidence to suggest that the current growth of 1-2% per year will increase in recent years. Property is priced at a level one would expect of a developed western European nation, but there are some bargain properties to be found which could provide high yield with high capital value increases. To find these it is essential to evaluate where demand growth will present whilst there is a supply restriction - there is a case to be made that student housing within large university towns falls within this bracket.

Standards of living in the Netherlands are high with the country attaining a Human Development Index (HDI) rating just outside the top ten best countries in the world. The HDI rating rates factors including life expectancy at birth, the average adult literacy rate and the gross domestic product of the citizens of a country.
