The selling- and rental market in Amsterdam is again very stressful.

To rent a house: a lot of houses on the sites are already rented out while the objects are still on the rental sites.

To buy a house: A lot of people who are selling their houses now, don’t want to sell it with a loss and still want to receive  the same amount as they paid in the past. These houses were bought at a moment when the market was on its top just before the crisis.  At this moment the prices are definitely increasing again, but still not on the same level as before.
