Independent Mortgage Advisor for Expats in The Netherlands



Many expats prefer mortgage financing for property purchases, often starting with their bank. However, we believe an independent mortgage advisor offers a more optimal route. Our focus is securing the best deal for expats through a vast network of over 35 mortgage providers, assessing conditions and acceptance policies beyond interest rates.


Our expertise reflects in an exceptional 99% success rate with expat clients. We handle complexities like residence permits, foreign income, tax exemptions and 30% rulings. For Amsterdam, Almere or Eindhoven properties, explore our dedicated pages. As independent advisors, we guide you through the entire process, ensuring a favorable outcome.


During the intake session, we evaluate your eligibility, borrowing capacity, monthly expenses, property details, costs, tax rebates and address your housing market inquiries.

What are the costs?



In the Netherlands, mortgage advisors are client-compensated, avoiding any commissions from mortgage providers for complete independence. They also serve as intermediaries, handling document verification, application submission and mortgage offer review.


You can find our service fees on our website. The first step is a no-obligation intake session to explore our offerings. Upon proceeding, we’ll provide detailed documentation.


When purchasing property in the Netherlands, one-off costs like transfer tax, notary fees and agent fees can’t be included in the mortgage. Check our blog about common buying-related costs. Good news: mortgage-related one-off costs are tax deductible in the Netherlands.

How much money can I borrow?



Your borrowing capacity depends on income, outstanding loans, mortgage setup and interest rates. Our mortgage calculator estimates your maximum capacity. However, interest rate fluctuations and income components (such as bonuses, 13th-month pay or allowances) require thorough assessment by our mortgage advisors for precision. Rely on us for accurate guidance throughout this process.

Benefit from our priority partnerships:

In 2024 we have once again been selected as a priority partner of ABN AMRO Bank and ING Bank. This means that both these mortgage providers review our applications within 24 hours and have specialized Expat teams reviewing our applications. For our clients buying homes this results in a quick mortgage application with less stress and higher success rate.

Already a homeowner?



When contemplating refinancing or approaching the end of your fixed-term mortgage interest, we can assist you in comparing various mortgage providers and products available in the market. This is particularly important when interest rates are low or expected to rise. Additionally, if you’re planning to move, we can explore the possibility of transferring your current mortgage plan, allowing you to retain favorable rates partially. We are here to find out what works for you.
