Further recovery in 2015

The Dutch housing market will recover further in 2015, despite the scaling back of incentive measures. The number of sales will rise further, and the house prices will increase modestly as well.

Housing market recovery continues

The recovery on the Dutch housing market continues. The market bottomed in mid-2013, in terms of both price and sales numbers. We envisage a strong increase in owner-occupied sales and a small house price increase in 2014 and 2015.

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.

Stabilisation of the housing market continues

The Dutch housing market stabilised in the last six months of 2013. Sales increased and the price of existing owner-occupied houses remained unchanged. In 2014 we expect a modest increase in sales and a stabilisation of house prices.

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.
