There are currently a number of structural demographic developments, such as population ageing, urbanization and the increase in single and two-person households. This offers opportunities for growth of the rental market. The current stock of outdated, regulated rental homes is insufficient and demand far exceeds supply. In the coming years, the need for rental homes in the private sector will therefore strongly increase, in particular the demand for apartments. A suitable target group policy takes demographics into account, including residential products that are suitable for target groups and living environments. The increase in demand will be most pronounced in the Randstad provinces and peripheral areas such as Gelderland and Noord-Brabant.
