About Diemen

The Diemen territory is confirmed to be inhabited for almost a thousand years and is known to be one of the oldest settlements in the region. Even two centuries older as Amsterdam itself. In the meantime Diemen has become mainly a city for commuters, that has grown substantially compared to the earlier days because of the influence by Amsterdam and the construction of new residential areas. However, there are still a lot of eyecatchers that remind oneself of the rich past.

This rich past is the reason that a large number of houses are built in different times, according standards that don’t hold up anymore these days. That doesn’t have to mean that these houses don’t meet the wishes of modern human beings. However, it does mean that a thorough check of the structural state and identifying possible problems on time, such as structural problems, is eminent. Aankoopmakelaar Amsterdam has vast technical knowledge and thereby prevents dat crucial deficits are being overlooked.

In Diemen the demand exceeds the offer and on top of that not every available house is visible online.
