The difference in monthly payments can make purchasing an attractive option for those planning to stay in the Netherlands for a longer amount of time.
Advantages of purchasing a house:
Buying property helps to build up personal assets.
Historical figures show that the real estate market in the Netherlands grows faster than inflation, which makes it an attractive investment.
Due to inflation, mortgage debt will also decrease slightly.
The Dutch tax authorities provide an annual tax benefit for home owners. Most of the time expats will receive the maximum tax refund.
