How & Why do Expats Purchase Real Estate in Brussels?
Breakfast & workshops on 27 October 2022

Are you renting a place in a city you love and, every now and then, dream of a place that would be yours? But you do not really know where to start, how to screen the market, how you can close a loan, what investment would make sense in your position…

Then, our upcoming breakfast and workshops are for you. Please book 27 October in your agenda and come and meet:
Christophe van den Bosch, real estate agent @ Latour et Petit, sharing his insights on the housing market trend
Kim Uyên Pham, Mortgage loan and insurance expert for expats @KBC Brussel, sharing all one needs to know before closing a loan to purchase a home

Just register, come along and enjoy some coffee, croissants and good company...
Looking forward to seeing you there!
