iDDOMUS was pleased to be an exhibitor last week at the successful SECOND HOME BEURS, an international property fair focused towards buyers interested in purchasing a second home. The event was held in Utrecht earlier this month and attracted over 7,500 visitors, and exhibitors from over twenty different countries.
This Dutch industry forum is a leading and influential force for the specific ‘second home sector’, and an important point of information within a market that has grown considerably in recent years. Due to the success of Airbnb and similar online businesses there has been a significant increase in investors looking to purchase a house as a source of income via private lettings. This demographic, together with those wishing to buy a dream holiday home in a foreign country, creates a substantial audience for real estate professionals.
The SECOND HOME BEURS provides a comprehensive range of ideas, services and advice all under one roof. Attendees to the event were able to gain useful information relating to the purchase and ownership of a new house from agents and developers experienced in their particular territories.
iDDOMUS made a valuable contribution to the exhibition, addressing questions from the public interested in luxury designer villas located on the Costa del Sol. This area of southern Spain is one of the most popular locations with many nationalities searching for a new home in the sun. In addition, the iDDOMUS commitment to sustainable architecture and use of eco friendly materials and building practices is regarded as crucial to many wanting to build a dream villa. This iDDOMUS ethos and our innovative way of working was received warmly at the conference and resulted in a great deal of interest.
The organisers of SECOND HOME BEURS have reported that the event was a great success, with the 2019 edition receiving a 10% increase in visitors compared to last year.
