Amsterdam parking space up for grabs for 495,000 euros – Times of India

Housing is at a premium and so is parking in the Netherlands, but a parking space put up for sale this week for almost halfa-million euros — more than the average home price — has raised eyebrows. Located in P.C. Hooftstraat next to Amsterdam’s famous Vondelpark, the indoor 18-square-metre space was advertised at 495,000 euros on Dutch property website funda.nl.
The parking space is a stone’s throw from the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. Dutch commercial broadcaster RTL Nieuws called it “the most expensive parking space in the Netherlands”. The parking space can also be rented for 750 euros a month. The Netherlands is facing an acute housing shortage of some 390,000 homes, according to a recent study. The average house price was 430,000 euros in the Netherlands last year.
