BUYOUT PROTECTION GOOD FOR THE HOUSING MARKET IN AMSTERDAM?

The laws and regulations regarding the buy-out protection (which will apply from 1 January 2022) will have a dampening effect on the Amsterdam housing market. For example, the buyer is not allowed to rent out the property for the first four years, provided it was already a rental property. This will deter investors, as it were. It will become more attractive to buy a house and live in it. Because investors are excluded, we expect house prices to rise less in the coming calendar year.

TIGHTNESS ON THE AMSTERDAM HOUSING MARKET

The shortage on the housing market in Amsterdam continues to be a problem. The NOS wrote this earlier in 2021. Amsterdam is a hip city. It is very popular with students and city dwellers. There is simply more demand than supply. People are pushing. We see the number of viewings increasing, accompanied by high overbids. In general, prices in Amsterdam are still higher than in the rest of the Netherlands. You pay a higher square metre price in Amsterdam than elsewhere in the country. Yet many people want to live in and around Amsterdam. We therefore believe that this housing shortage will not diminish in the coming years.

ADDITIONAL CHANGES TO THE TRANSFER TAX

Since 1 January 2021, buyers under the age of 35 are exempt from transfer tax when buying their first home. This makes buying a house more attractive for starters. Above 35, you pay 2% and investors pay 8% transfer tax.

As of 1 January 2022, you will not have to pay this rate if you have to abandon the purchase due to unforeseen circumstances. In this way, the government ensures that the transfer tax is even fairer.

In addition, housing corporations and project developers are also exempt from transfer tax when they buy VoV (sale on conditions) houses. When they buy these houses, they get considerably high discounts and are obliged to resell them to starters or people with a lower income. In this way, the government is directly ensuring that homes become more affordable for private individuals.

RISING COMMODITY PRICES

Over the past year, we have seen commodity prices rise significantly. This is due to various factors ranging from tariffs to natural disasters. The effect of these rising commodity prices is being felt throughout the economy, and the Amsterdam real estate market is no exception. Rising construction costs are one of the most direct ways higher commodity prices affect the real estate market. As construction companies have to pay more for lumber, steel and other materials, these costs are passed on to home buyers. Also in Amsterdam. We see this trend across the country. Prices of new construction homes are rising rapidly. In addition to the higher prices of new homes, we saw recently that overbidding was the norm. With the current interest rates, however, this is becoming a bit more difficult.

How current interest rates are affecting the Amsterdam housing market

With interest rates currently rising, individuals are being forced to borrow less money. This has a visible depressing effect on Amsterdam house prices. With rising interest rates, people are less willing to spend money. The average price for a home in Amsterdam has fallen 3% since last year. Large purchases are often postponed or limited. Low interest rates in recent years have allowed consumers to purchase more expensive homes.

Rising interest rates provide creative solutions as far as lenders are concerned. With banks no longer issuing high loans, the private market is being tapped. With all the risks involved. Their stricter condition further complicate the purchase process.
