Amsterdam - Accommodation and Property
If you plan to stay in Amsterdam for more than three months, you'll probably have to apply for a temporary residence endorsement for your passport, known as an MVV. The application for this endorsement can be obtained from the Dutch Consulate in your home country. You may be required to provide several documents, including proof of health insurance and proof that you can support yourself while in the country.
Housing seems to be a reasonably available commodity. There are stories of new subdivisions sprouting up away from the city's interior on a fairly regular basis, increasing the number of homes on the market. Take note that as a general rule, the closer the property is to the center of the city, the higher the price.
Many expats seem to choose housing based on nearby amenities. If there are children, proximity to parks and schools become more important. For those who love to dine and enjoy evenings out, nearby restaurants and attractions make the difference. As a rule, the location in comparison to other things - work, school, or play - appears to be more important than any particular neighborhood in the city.
