Summary: The most desirable neighborhoods in The Hague, Netherlands are the city center, the Scheveningen area, and the Duinoord area. The average cost to buy a nice 2 bedroom home in The Hague is around $400,000 USD, and a nice 3 bedroom home is around $500,000 USD. These properties typically include modern amenities such as central heating, double glazing, and a fully equipped kitchen. There are no restrictions on foreign ownership for properties in The Hague. An expat looking to buy a home in The Hague should start by researching the different neighborhoods and their amenities. They should also consider their budget and the type of property they are looking for. It is also important to research the local real estate market and to contact a local real estate agent to help with the search.

How do I find a place to live in The Hague?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"The Hague is a great city to live in, with plenty of options for housing. One of the best ways to find a place to live is to use online resources such as websites like Pararius, Funda, and Kamernet. These websites allow you to search for rental properties in The Hague and its surrounding areas. Additionally, you can also use social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to find rental properties in The Hague. Additionally, you can also contact local real estate agents who can help you find a suitable place to live. Finally, you can also look for rental properties in newspapers and magazines," explained one expat living in The Hague, The Netherlands.

"We were fortunate in that my husband was here 6 months ahead of the family. He used that time wisely visiting neighborhoods and nearby towns to get the 'vibe'. He also spoke with anyone and everyone - where did they live, did they like it, did they wish they lived elsewhere, what did they wish they'd done differently. Through this we made the tough decision that we wanted an urban, Dutch experience, not 'expat suburbia' as if we were counting the days until we left. Then we honed in on the best neighborhoods within easy walk/commute, and went for best layout on a quiet street near (but not too near) good shopping and public transportation. We used a rental agency but we'd done the tough work," said one person in The Hague.
