Gross rental yields from apartments in the Netherlands continue to be attractive. The returns on investment are not the greatest- but they still beat many other countries, especially given the excellent security of the Netherlands, its stability, rule of law, generally vibrant economy, and good long-term prospects.

In Amsterdam, yields on apartments range from 2.91% to 6.84%. As usual, smaller apartments return higher yields than larger ones.

In The Hague, yields range from 5.05% to 6.07%.

The Hague is a less expensive city to buy in, and really merits consideration by investors. First, it is the seat of government, so most foreign embassies in the Netherlands and 150 international organizations are located in The Hague, including the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. Several large international businesses have their headquarters in The Hague, including Shell, the world´s second-largest company in terms of revenue. This means that there is an ideal group of expatriate tenants to whom owners can rent their apartments, as 26% of the jobs in The Hague are either offered by the Dutch government or by international institutions. In addition, for those interested in the short-term rental market, tourism is important, with 1.2 million tourists a year.

English is spoken virtually everywhere in the Netherlands, and non-Dutch-speaking property investors from abroad will experience no difficulty navigating the environment.
