If you intend to purchase a property in Amsterdam, buying in the city is extremely expensive. However, outside the city you can find some reasonably priced homes. Estate agents promote their houses on the major property sites such as: Funda or MVA-Makelaars.

Travel if moving to Amsterdam
Amsterdam has an impressive public transport network, including metros, trams, ferries and trains but the bike is the best way of getting around the city. Bicycle lanes are amazingly well organised and are easy to ride along. Sadly, because bikes often get stolen, choose something second hand and don’t pay more than around €175.
