House prices in Dutch cities
Chart below shows historical prices over last 20 years for four Dutch biggest cities including the
forecast for coming years from major financial institutions.
Prices move up and down, but in all the cities there is a positive price trend.
That means that if you buy a house and keep it for many years, then its price will be higher then
the bought price.
But, how many years is needed to keep the house to be sure that it will have a positive balance?
The chart below answers the question from historical perspective: 8 years holding always had the
positive balance, or 5 years holding always
had better balance compared to renting the relevant place.
