Rent in Amsterdam is expensive, sometimes even ridiculous. That is why we dream about buying a house, because those home owners have it made. They are set (in stone). And us? We can’t buy yet. What we can do though is live in a great rental, right next to those expensive houses in Amsterdam. Suddenly the m2 prices of rentals in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid and Centrum don’t look that pricey anymore. Not that it is cheap, but there are more possibilities than you would have thought.
Rent in Amsterdam is Expensive
A house for sale costs an average of €4300 per m2 according to the real estate agents association NVM, but for 15m2 on the Prinsengracht an asking price of €150.000 was recently asked: that is €10.000 per m2. And it gets worse said the Paroool in an article. The line up of the 10 most expensive houses per square meter in Amsterdam.
Just like that among the posh
It should not surprise you that all these houses are in Amsterdam centrum and in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid. Basically only posh people. Streets like Herman Heijermansweg, Van Breestraat and Prinsengracht are on this list. In the first street mentioned on the list you pay a whopping €13.287 per square meter. Good to know that you can rent a house in the same area for approximately €24 per square meter.
On the same canal for a fraction of the cost
On the canals you can also find the nicest buildings. On the Prinsengracht for instance, there was a building for sale at € 12.345 euro per m2. For this monumental penthouse you need to pay a total of 3 million Euro and another 520 Euro a month in maintenance cost. That makes it a fun fact that you can now (mid oktober) rent a house on the Prinsengract via RentSlam with 2 bedrooms and 2 balcony’s for 1750 euro. Not cheap, but in comparison much more feasible.
