In the world of investment, finding ways to grow your wealth while minimising taxes is challenging. For Thomas VDL, an experienced investor from Antwerp, however, this was a personal mission. He wanted not only to achieve short-term returns, but also to secure long-term benefits for his heirs. He therefore decided to buy a terraced house in Terneuzen, through MOMO Estates, a company specialising in offering Dutch real estate investments to Belgian investors. In this blog article, we will talk to Thomas about his rationale, his experiences, his choice of the Netherlands and whether he would do it again.
Question: Hi Thomas, thanks for taking the time for this interview. Can you tell us what inspired you to become an experienced investor and why you are always looking for opportunities to grow your wealth?
Thomas: Of course! My inspiration actually comes from my grandfather. He was always investing and showed me at a young age how important it is to be smart with your money. He taught me about the potential of real estate investments and how they can provide long-term financial stability. Those values have always stayed with me and driven me to strive for financial growth not only for myself, but also for the future generations of my family.

They helped me find the right investment that matched my needs and goals. When I finally became the owner of the terraced house in Terneuzen, it felt like a milestone.

Question: Great to hear that the purchase process went well, Thomas. Can you tell us more about why you specifically chose the Netherlands and why the Terneuzen region caught your interest?
Thomas: I chose the Netherlands because of the attractive opportunities offered by the property market there. The return on investment in the Netherlands is significantly higher than in Belgium, and that was certainly an important factor for me. Moreover, there are interesting tax benefits and succession options in the Netherlands which ensure that my investments are secured for my heirs in the long term. As for Terneuzen, it is a strategic location with a lot of economic activity. I strongly believe in the growth potential of this region and wanted to be part of the development taking place there.
