Unregulated housing sector supply reduces further, rental prices increase (Q4-2023)

The average square metre price of a rental home in the unregulated housing sector increased by 8.5 percent in the fourth quarter of 2023 compared to a year ago. New tenants paid €18.01 per square metre per month, as reported by the property portal Pararius. In comparison to the previous year, the number of rental homes in the unregulated housing sector available for new tenants has decreased by 15.6 percent. More information.   

Rental prices in the Netherlands continue to rise (Q3-2023)

In the second quarter of 2023, the five largest cities in the Netherlands saw a 27 percent decrease in the number of rental properties offered compared to a year ago, according to property portal Pararius. The average price per square metre in the unregulated sector increased by 5 to almost 8 percent in these cities. More information.  

Average rental prices rise in large cities in the Netherlands due to scarce rental offering (Q2-2023)

In the Netherlands’ five largest cities, the average price per square metre of rental housing in the unregulated sector increased in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the year before, housing platform Pararius reports. The same happened in nearly 75 percent of large and medium-sized cities. In Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam, the price per square metre increased by more than 4 percent. There is growing concern among Dutch real estate experts about the cabinet's plans for the rental market as their effects are already visible. Tenants are responding en masse to vacant rental properties while the overall Dutch rental supply is declining. More information.  

Rent falls nationally in the Dutch unregulated housing sector (Q1-2023)

The average price per square metre of a rental home in the unregulated housing sector in the Netherlands fell by 1.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2022 compared to a year earlier. Shell and furnished rental homes rose in price, while the price of upholstered homes went down. Compared to a year earlier, the number of unregulated sector rental properties that became available to new tenants in the Netherlands fell by 8.9 percent. More information.   

Prices increase slightly in the Dutch unregulated rental sector (Q4-2022)

The average rent of a rental property in the unregulated housing sector in the Netherlands rose by 0.6 percent in the third quarter of 2022 compared with a year ago. Shell and furnished rental homes rose in price, the price of upholstered homes remained the same. A rental home would be online for an average of 34 days, 8 days less than a year ago. More information.

Academic paper: Hierarchical Bias-Aware Clustering on a Rental Price Prediction Model

In this study, a comprehensive error analysis of the Estimated Rental Value (ERV) model was done. Using Hierarchical Bias-Aware Clustering (HBAC), a new method to detect bias in predictive algorithms, data clusters on which a model underperforms in its predictions can be discovered. Dissecting these data clusters provides valuable insights into the characteristics of properties with difficult to predict rents. More information contact our data team.

Academic paper: Using a Genetic Algorithm for Hyperparameter Tuning of a Conditional Tabular Generative Adversarial Network

More data is always desirable for training machine learning models. The more data, the smarter a model becomes. This study looked at data imitation. Obtaining more data by having real data imitated by generative models, e.g. Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). In this way, specific 'fake data' can be generated to train a model on, e.g. of objects with characteristics that are infrequent. More information contact our data team.

Slight rent increases in the free sector (Q3-2022)

The average rental price of a rental property in the free sector increased by 0.6 per cent in the third quarter of 2022 compared to a year ago. This reports housing platform Pararius. Bare and furnished rental properties increased in price, while the price of unfurnished properties remained the same. A rental property was online for 34 days on average, eight days shorter than a year ago. More information.  

Free sector rent growth flattens slightly (Q2-2022)

In the second quarter of 2022, the average rental price of free sector rental properties increased by 1.3 per cent compared to a year ago. This is according to figures from housing platform Pararius. The rental market thus shows a very different picture from the owner-occupied market, where prices rose by 10.6 per cent in the second quarter of 2022. More information.
