The Dutch property market has faced challenges in the aftermath of the 2008 crisis as housing prices collapsed. However, the latest figures released by the Dutch Association for Estate Agents (NVM) confirm that recovery in the housing market is gaining pace as the average sales price of a residential house in the Netherlands increased by almost 4% YoY.
