Dutch Housing Market Quarterly

Dutch Housing Market Quarterly June 2013

The bottom of the Dutch owner-occupied housing market is in sight. The fall in house sales has virtually come to a halt and price declines have also slowed. We expect this development to continue and that house prices may stabilise as well in 2014.

Economic Comment Dutch version

Economic Comment Dutch version

Dutch economy back in recession

The Dutch economy entered its third recession in four years in the second half of 2012. Recent sentiment indicators point to some stabilization at the start of the year, but the economic outlook remains weak and uncertain.
