The boom in the real estate market in the Netherlands continues

Supply does not keep up with demand, and prices are rising, according to Global Property Guide.

Property prices in the Netherlands continue to rise, supported by record low interest rates, and supply is unable to meet high demand.

Real estate in the Netherlands has been steadily growing in price for several years: by 8.5 % in 2018, by 6.9 % in 2017, by 8.8% in 2016, by 4.5% in 2015 and by 2.7% in 2014.

According to the Dutch Central Bureau of statistics (CBS), 218,595 properties were sold in the country in 2019. This indicator remained at the level of 2018,when there was a nearly 10% decrease in sales. Weak sales figures in recent years are due to a lack of supply.

The real estate market in the Netherlands shows an attractive yield for the developed economy – from 3.7 % to 6.4 %.

An apartment in Amsterdam will be expensive — about 6,900 euros per sq. m., according to the Global Property Guide.
