Dutch Housing Market Quarterly Dutch version

After the trough

The Dutch housing market will finally grow again in 2014. In terms of both pricing and the number of sales, we are out of the trough. The recovery is not broadbased yet, arrears still increase and the construction sector will pick up in 2015.

Housing market showing signs of a fragile recovery

As expected, the housing market is picking up slowly but surely. Some indicators are pointing to recovery, but it is still fragile. We expect an increase in sales in the fourth quarter of 2013, and stabilisation of prices in the course of 2014.

Several signs indicate a possible market recovery. E.g. the affordability of housing and consumer confidence improved due to lower prices since 2008. However, economic upturn is essential for a substantial recovery of the housing market.

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.

Kwartaalbericht Woningmarkt juni 2013 (Dutch)

De bodem van de Nederlandse koopwoningmarkt is in zicht. De daling van de woningverkopen is vrijwel tot stilstand gekomen en ook het tempo van de prijsdalingen is afgezwakt. Mogelijk stabiliseren de woningprijzen in 2014.

Dutch Housing Market Quarterly February 2013

The second-hand housing market recorded a good fourth quarter in 2012. Prices stabilised and house sales rose considerably. The main reason was that buyers had a strong incentive to sign a provisional sale agreement before 1 January 2013.

Kwartaalbericht Woningmarkt (Dutch)

Het jaar is slecht begonnen voor de markt van bestaande koopwoningen. In het eerste kwartaal van 2012 daalden de prijzen en werden er minder woningen verkocht. Dit beeld zal de komende kwartalen ongeveer hetzelfde blijven.

Woningmarktregio Parkstad (Dutch)

In Parkstad Limburg is te zien dat de uitstroom van mensen tot een halt komt en dat de jonge stedelijke wijken verhuisdynamiek vertonen. Door de woningvoorraad tijdig aan te passen, kan aantasting van de leefbaarheid worden tegengegaan.
