WHAT IS THE AVERAGE TURNAROUND TIME IN AMSTERDAM?
The average lead time for a home on the Amsterdam housing market this year is 48 days. Last year it was about 32 days. It seems that the housing market is going back to its old state.
BUYOUT PROTECTION GOOD FOR THE HOUSING MARKET IN AMSTERDAM?
The laws and regulations regarding buyout protection (effective January 1, 2022) will have a dampening effect on the Amsterdam housing market. After buying a property, the buyer is not allowed to rent it out for the first four years, provided it was already a rental property. This will deter investors, so to speak. It will become more attractive to buy a house and live in it. Because investors are kept out, we expect house prices to rise less in the coming calendar year.
TIGHTNESS ON THE AMSTERDAM HOUSING MARKET
The tightness in the housing market in Amsterdam continues and this is still a problem. NOS also wrote that earlier in 2021. Amsterdam is a hip city. It is very popular with students and peripheral residents. There is simply more demand compared to 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 meter price in Amsterdam than elsewhere in the country. Yet many people want to live in and around Amsterdam. As a result, we think that this housing shortage will not ease in the coming years.

ADDITIONAL CHANGES TO THE TRANSFER TAX
Since Jan. 1, 2021, buyers under the age of 35 are exempt from transfer tax for buying their first home. This makes buying a home more attractive for first-time buyers. Above 35, you pay 2% and investors or investors pay 10.4% transfer tax.
From January 1, 2022, you will not have to pay your rate if you have to abandon the purchase due to unforeseen circumstances. In this way, the government is ensuring that the transfer tax is even more equitable.
In addition, housing associations and developers are also exempt from transfer tax when they buy VoV (sale subject to conditions) homes. By buying these homes, they receive significantly high discounts and are required to resell them to first-time buyers or people with lower incomes. In this way, the government directly ensures that homes become more affordable for 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 can be 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 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 AFFECT 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. Which in turn has a direct effect when you want to sell a house in Amsterdam. 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.
