You will live and work abroad but have many questions about housing? Nothing more normal!
Are you going abroad through Yobbers?
Some of the companies we partner with provide accommodation. So if you go abroad with Yobbers, you are most likely taken care of and do not have to worry! If the company doesn’t provide accommodation, you can find advice and tips on finding housing abroad on this page!
On this page, we will give you advice on how you can find accommodation for your new life abroad. The housing market differs per location. Therefore, we give you some suggestions and tips per country.
Our tips for housing abroad!
Preparation is key. Create a folder to collect and save the necessary documents.
2. Consider the different options
Have a look at other options. Consider staying with a guest family or check out Facebook groups for possibilities.
3. Learn about the city
Inform yourself about the different neighbourhoods, hotspots and distance to the office!
4. Increase your chances
It is better to send a message too much than not enough. If you see something interesting, reach out to the one offering the housing. A simple message is not binding; consider your options!
5. Get all the information
Whether remotely or face-to-face, ask for all the necessary information beforehand.
6. Double check
Check the contract carefully. Only sign it if you are sure it is trustworthy, and everything is clear.
Where will you soon be living and working?

The Netherlands' housing market is competitive; be extra reactive and look at Facebook groups. But the Dutch can speak English well, so the language will not be an issue.
