Summary: What is the cost of living in Netherlands? Hear what expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Netherlands have to say about the cost of housing, health insurance and general living costs.

Housing Costs in The Netherlands

"Factoring in space/square footage, probably a little less. Depends on what you came from and where you settle here. It isn't cheap," remarked another in The Hague.

"My housing costs are much higher. I pay around 1800 each month now agains around 800 US in Austin," explained one expat.

"Housing is cheaper than in large cities in the US, but is not cheap. In my experience, however, I am happy with what I pay. My apartment is small, but I live in one of the best neighborhoods in Rotterdam and I can afford to live alone. In NY, I had to share an apartment with someone I'd just met," said another person in Rotterdam.
