Dutch House Prices Have Remained Flat The Last Few Months

Dutch house prices have remained flat the last few months. The price index has been stuck near 85 since April of this year. According to CBS year over year home prices dropped 4% last month. Home prices are now 20.3% below the record of August 2008.

Corrected for inflation house prices haven’t moved either as Mathijs Bouman showed with another chart on Twitter. According to the chart below home prices corrected for inflation are at the same level as in October 1999. In a post I made about Dutch house prices in June of this year I also noted that the price, corrected for inflation, was the same as in October 1999. While we can speculate about what home prices will do next right now it looks like we have found a temporary bottom at the very least.
