19-07-2015 - As of October 1, 2015 the new housing evaluation system will be effective. In this new system 25% of the WOZ value will be taken into account in the calculation of the housing evaluation points. This influences the market value and the rental rates of non-liberalized houses. The consequences of the changes in regulation have been examined by Colliers International in their latest report: ‘Effects of the new housing evaluation system’.
In the Randstad the effect on the market value of non-liberalized housing complexes is larger than outside of the Randstad. The average rise in value within the Randstad is approximately 1.5%, outside of the Randstad this is slightly lower. However, outside of the Randstad the current rental rates are on average 15% lower than the maximum reasonable rent, so the effect on the market value after mutation is relatively low.
The demand for and the location of a house will have a greater influence on the maximum reasonable rent of a house. A decrease of the maximum reasonable rent will concentrate mostly within the former designated areas with a scarcity of social housing. A raise of the maximum reasonable rents is to be expected in areas outside of these former designated areas with a relatively high average WOZ value for social housing.
