Two years ago there was a fuss about a terraced house in Amsterdam that was for sale for 1.5 million euros. This year, the asking price of a parking garage in one of Amsterdam’s better neighborhoods is already close to a million.

The exact amount requested for this 22 square meter parking space is 995,000 euros. If the garage on the corner of Jacob Obrechtstraat and Van Breestraat actually leaves for that amount, it will be the most expensive parking space in the world. The previous record was 870,000 euros for a parking space in Hong Kong.

Rent: 990 euros

The garage in the Concertgebouw area has a private driveway and is secured with a bollard with a lock. The whole is also equipped with an electric garage door, which can be operated via a hand transmitter. According to Funda, it is the most spacious garage in the area. There is space for one car and you can open the doors normally after parking.

If you still doubt whether this justifies the asking price, Funda comes with a few extra arguments: the garage has lighting, electricity and is equipped with a sink with water connection. Should it become a bit too budget, then the parking space can also be rented for 990 euros per month. You do have to pay a three-month deposit in advance.

Still, chances are that the owner chose the exorbitant sale amount to generate attention for the rental. He nevertheless informs local broadcaster AT5 that he has been called flat. When asked about the price, he says, “It’s not that it’s worth it. But few garages like this drive up the price. I get a call from local residents who, for example, want to leave their Ferrari behind safely. And that is possible in such a garage. ”


Real estate agent Siep Roelfzema of the nearby real estate agency Roelfzema Vastgoed calls the asking price ‘exorbitant’. That is not only about the purchase price, but also about the rent of 990 euros. “You have a place here for around 550 euros per month. The ratio between rental price and sales price is also abnormal. And then you also have to pay another 6 percent and soon 8 percent transfer tax on the purchase amount. In any case, we would never put a garage for sale for this amount. ”

Another local broker who doesn’t want to be mentioned by name also calls the price ‘quite exceptional’. “And then I express myself very carefully. On the other hand, it is the only covered parking space on this street and it is all people who like to have their – often expensive – car inside. As always, you only need one person crazy enough. A billionaire from the Far East with a pied a terre here that has little feeling for local prices, for example. ”
