For your information:I am a 27 year old Dutchie myself with a lot of expat friends.
I share articles related to the Dutch real esate market, because I hate that expats are being exploited by my fellow country men, especially in the housing market.

You might come across some medium stuctured sentences. Let's say, my knowledge on the Dutch real estate market is far better than my English (feel free to send an e-mail to email@example.com if the error is too big to ignore).
