Bidding on a house is a nerve-racking activity. Can you start bidding below the asking price, or is it necessary in your region to offer significantly above the asking price? The traditional bidding process is a confusing bidding process. With Bieden en Wonen we have been changing this for 12 years. All homes that are sold by Bieden en Wonen have been sold through our online bidding system. It’s a transparent system where you can see exactly what other interested candidates have bid on a property. You will always pay a fair price for your home with us.
“Bidding online is a real relief. Pleasantly assisted and professionally guided with the purchase of our home.”
– Rob and Inge from Utrecht bought a home with Bieden en Wonen
