The Dutch residential market has been turbulent in the recent decade, with sharp impact of the 2007 financial crisis, resulting in significantly lower supply. In this period, many home owners were inflexible due to negative equity. Government regulation in the last 30 years has played a significant role in the residential market, via income policies, rent control regulations and home ownership stimulus. The coming years will shape a new sustainable market equilibrium, suitable for the social context, budget reality, changing demand and lifestyles. Change, in the rental market and in the home owners market, provides an interesting perspective for long term quality investment, catered to the market and the demand of tenants.
