About Lindy Nikken Real Estate
After over 20 years of experience in the larger area of Leiden and The Hague, Lindy Nikken saw a business opportunity that could fulfil the needs of expats coming to the Netherlands. In 2006, based upon proper investigation with regard to what was really important for our future clients, we started an independent real estate agency that does not sell- but only purchases and rents houses on behalf of our clients.
The current Dutch real estate market is hectic; there is more demand than offer and property is being sold quickly. Working with Lindy Nikken Real Estate is profitable and without unexpected risk. Our priority is to find the place you really like ánd with good investment value. We want you to have no risk selling or renting out later on (when you will have to leave for another country). We will guide you during the entire process of buying a house, in a safe - and efficient way and with the help of our contact network (mortgage advisors, valuators, structural surveyor and notaries). Also our contact network is very experienced in the expat community.
You decide, as a client, how much money you wish to spend on our services. We offer 3 purchase packages and 1 rental package. If you are already very familiar with the Dutch real estate market, the Basic Package can be an option. Based upon your requirements we will search for houses or apartments and will visit them, we will investigate all important documents, we will advise you about the value and the negotiation strategy, negotiate on your behalf and will go over the purchase contract with you.
The preferred package of our clients is the Extended Package. This package offers complete guidance throughout the whole process. It contains extra services such as arranging a structural survey and a quick evaluation, close contact with your mortgage advisor and notary to ensure the entire process is going smoothly. Also we will inspect the property on the day of transfer and will be there at the notary, to sort out possible problems.
The Total Package contains extra service for clients that want guidance with regard to renovation. We can offer our guidance prior to the actual renovation. We also offer a Rental Package for our clients who prefer renting instead of buying. For these clients we will provide services during the process of finding a nice apartment or house. We will negotiate the rental conditions on your behalf, make sure the rental agreement does not contain any risk and we will do an inspection on the entrance date.
