I am moving to Amsterdam next month to begin a new job from London and I have been left astounded at the lack of properties available for rent in the market.
As someone who has rented in London for almost five years (apparently the prime real estate in the world...) I have thus far only been shown two apartments available in/close to the City Centre.
Is this a common phenomenon?
Thanks in advance for responses

As Mr. Fook said, I don't understand bailing out bank.
However, helping other member countries is something little different. EU has started as a steel & coal community and now is lot more than that.

That is how racism works. A higher then average percentage of blacks and hispanics ending in jail. I belief "institutionalized" is the word to describe this. Maybe that is why you don't recognize it as racism, Bubbba.

I totally agree with you. I too cringe and hide from the type of Brits you are referring to. But you can't be talking about all British tourists can you?
For example, when a friend of mine went to Ypres on a guided tour and the guide confided in him they had to ban groups of Dutch children because they were so badly behaved and showed no respect in the graveyards. Now I'm not saying all Dutch children are badly behaved because that would just be untrue.
But as I said on the whole the type of Brits you are referring to are revolting and I avoid them as much as I can. Which is why I would never go to a resort which attracted these types, but I'm sure you will agree that unfortunately Amsterdam does have a reputation for drugs and prostitutes which attracts the type of tourists you are describing.
