Amsterdam’s attractive real estate market
The British Financial Times reported on the growing trend of international investors looking at Dutch real estate in 2013. The newspaper noted that the conditions in Amsterdam are perfect for international cash buyers of Amsterdam properties: real estate is competitively priced at the moment, and the city hasn’t lost its charm for either tourists or international businesses.
