Buy-to-let market share in the Netherlands 2017, by city

This statistic shows the market share of buy-to-let (BTL) property sales in the four biggest cities of the Netherlands, namely Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht, in 2017. Buy-to-let is a British term referring to private investors who purchase property (excluding holiday homes) so they can rent it out. In essence, it's a type of investment from the landlord.

The source states that since 2015 the buy-to-let market accelerated in the Netherlands with the number of buy-to-let mortgages reaching 25,500 in 2017. Interest is mostly focusing on the four big cities, with Rotterdam the stand-out buy-to-let city with a market share of approximately 22 percent. In the second quarter of 2018, Rotterdam had a rent of approximately 15.85 euros per square meter. This was less than the national average of approximately 15.82 euros per square meters. Amsterdam, however, was more expensive.
