AMSTERDAM — The study conducted by Woningmarktcijfers.nl focused on the affordability of housing across The Netherlands. According to the results of the study, the country’s housing is not as expensive as is generally thought.
Almost half of the properties available on the Dutch market are under 200.000 euros, and a fourth is under 150.000 euros, ANP reports.
Of the 443 Dutch municipalities, Bloemendaal is the most expensive one. The average monthly housing fee here reached 747.600 euros last year, 15% more than in 2005. Two thirds of the properties sold in Bloemendaal last year were above 400.000 euros.
The municipality of Reiderland is reportedly the liest expensive, the same as in 2005. The average price paid for a new property here is 124.300 euros.
The detailed results of the study are available on the internet free of charge under Woningmarktcijfers.
