The Netherlands is a nice country to live, work and live in. Our country is ranked high on all relevant top lists. It has led to great popularity with people from around the world in recent years. The Outlook 2021 - Residential takes you through our expectations for the housing market, including:
The Dutch owner-occupied housing market is currently experiencing the consequences of years of high demand for homes with faltering new construction. As a result, large parts of the country have to deal with significant price increases, which means that an owner-occupied home has become financially out of sight for large groups of house hunters.
Despite the corona crisis, the housing market can continue to count on interest from investors and, together with segments such as logistics and healthcare, is seen as a refuge for investments in commercial real estate. The demand for available housing portfolios is therefore high.
Although there is an outflow to the region, the large cities remain popular, house prices are high and the housing shortage is high. Transforming retail space in the core areas of municipalities into homes and a more active role for housing associations can offer opportunities.
