I don't know if scouser is still looking for an answer, but I wouldn't mind hearing an answer. :)

I was wondering the same thing.

Also, as a connected question, what can anyone tell me about Amstelveen?

Hi Orion, if you're looking to move to the greater Amsterdam area, Amstelveen or Diemen are absolutely better value for money. Also they're nice places to be with young children (less crowded and a little more laid back)
Most Dutchies rent through the socialized sector which has about a 10 year waiting list, almost all houses up to 664 euros a month fall in this category. Everything else is called free sector and thus free game...
The expat companies especially will charge you exorbitant amounts. A good alternative are the free sector houses owned by "social rent companies" you can find these on: www.woningnet.nl under "vrije sector woningen", but they don't have an English webpage.
Alternately you could call the individual companies i.e. Stadgenoot | Betaalbaar en zorgeloos wonen in een leefbare buurt or Home
I know somel people who rent through vesteda.com and Huurwoningen gezocht? | Actueel aanbod huurwoningen | Actys Wonen they're decent as well.

If you need anymore info, let me know! Good luck!

Renee, you are awesome!

Thanks for the info. It's all very helpful! The more I hear about Amstelveen the more I think it is the right choice.
