Rental prices free sector on the rise again

less than 1 min..


In the third quarter of this year, the average price for square meters increased again by 2.5 percent compared to the same quarter last year. Of course, Amsterdam still remains the most expensive city to rent a home. Prices there rose by 1.6 percent in the past quarter. On average, new tenants paid 22.44 euros per square meter per month. These numbers come from the monitor.

After four quarters, there is again a price increase. In the third quarter of 2020, rents in the free sector fell for the first time in six years. This was mainly due to the fact that the expats stayed away because of the coronavirus. It was less easy to rent out houses that had become vacant. To prevent vacancy, the houses are priced more attractively.

The expat market is now fully operational again. The wider range of short stay options has disappeared because expats are flocking to the Netherlands again. This is accompanied by recent price increases.
