Monuments

   

Both through an extensive study program at the Hogeschool Utrecht and because of a passion for our cultural heritage, Cato Real Estate Agency specializes in the valuation, sales and purchases of state and municipal monuments and historic buildings. 

The purchase or sale of a listed building requires an always increasing specific knowledge. To give professional advice on a monument or historic building, the estate agent , apart from knowledge of the local market, also has to know about the different types of monuments, the tax implications, the grants for maintenance and financing, in order to achieve the best result.

As monuments estate agent we will inform and advise you on:
 
  • Loans & grants for (national) monuments
  • Legislation and regulations (WRO, WABO and Momo)
  • Municipal heritage policy
  • Heritage & design coupled with zoning plans
  • Area-preservation, prosperity and quality
  • Conversion opportunities
  • Construction and architecture history
  • Relevant organizations (NRF, restoration architects)

Many interested potential buyers assume that the financing and maintenance of historic buildings is difficult and not financially feasible. The opposite is true. For buyers of monuments there are special arrangements.

For owners of a monuments:

  • The maintenance of the property is tax-deductible
  • For restoration and maintenance, the Restoration mortgage has a low interest rate (5% below the market rate with a minimum of 1.5%)
  • Purchase and additional funding is also possible
  • Owners can receive personal guidance through the 'Restoration Guide "at the National Restoration

For owners of a local monument:

  • For restoration and maintenance there is the Cultural mortgage fund and there are Regional Restoration Funds (this differs for each region)
  • Purchase financing and additional funding is also possible
