Second Home Expo Comes to Maastricht

What is the Second Home Expo? 

At The Second Home Expo, you discover how to achieve your dream of owning a second home. With a selection of 150,000 holiday homes in more than 25 countries under one roof, you have access to all the industry experts in one place. As a home seeker, it’s the ideal place to start your home hunting. There are six expos every year spread across the Netherlands and Belgium, and Elxis has participated in every one since its inception.


Think of it like speed dating, where you have a wide selection of properties available. A series of stands are set up in the main hall, and you are free to walk around and speak with exhibitors or other event participants. The event has been going since 1995, growing today to be one of the largest international home fairs in Europe, now with over 150 exhibitors.

Why Go to the Second Home Expo?

If you are considering buying a home in Greece, a visit to the Second Home Expo may save you a lot of time and money. Travelling to view properties in Greece takes effort, and while Greece is one of the best places in the world to visit, you may not have time to visit properties in person, depending on your work or personal commitments. Consulting with us beforehand means you can narrow down your research and make an educated decision about where to plan your next viewing trip.
