Transaction prices

At the same time, average transaction prices fluctuated. Starting at € 839,242 in the third quarter of 2021, they peaked at € 932,681 in the fourth quarter, then dropped to € 758,223 in the first quarter of 2023. The second quarter saw another increase to € 867,974. The drop in transaction prices in 2023 compared to 2021 may be related to the publicity surrounding the energy label. The houses in the center are relatively old, so the energy label is often not very good. Because a home's energy label is becoming increasingly important when selling and buying homes, it may also affect transaction prices.

Housing transactions and bidding rates in Amsterdam Center

One of the remarkable variables in the dynamics of the Amsterdam housing market is the number of housing transactions. If we look at recent trends, we see a fluctuation in the number of transactions in Amsterdam Center. For example, while there were 570 housing transactions in the third quarter of 2021, this number dropped to 198 transactions in the first quarter of 2023. However, in the second quarter of 2023, we saw a slight increase to 226 transactions. This kind of fluctuation can have several causes, such as economic factors, seasonal influences or policy changes.

In parallel with the number of housing transactions, it is also interesting to look at bidding percentages. The percentage above the asking price bid for a property can tell us a lot about demand and the level of competition on the market. In the third quarter of 2022, the bidding percentage in Amsterdam Center was 105.9%. After that, we saw a decline, with bids at 100% of the asking price in the first quarter of 2023. However, in the second quarter of 2023 we again see a slight increase to 100.7%.

These variables are of great interest to both buyers and sellers because they indicate competitive pressures and market dynamics. By closely monitoring them, you can anticipate future trends and determine the best strategy for your particular situation.

A tentative forecast for the coming quarter can be derived from the data. Prices per square meter and transaction prices seem to be rising slightly again compared to the first quarter of this year. We therefore expect slight fluctuations in price in the next quarter. Whether this increase will continue is therefore unclear.
