Annual Report 2022
We have developed more than 380,000 residential properties since 1946, the year in which our organisation was founded. Last year, the Corona epidemic normalised and we were able to get back to mainly working from our offices, something we had all really looked forward to. We were also able to celebrate our 75th anniversary together with all our Dutch and German colleagues - a year later than planned.
The severe housing shortage - in the Netherlands, rising to some 315,000 by 2022, 4% of the total housing stock - was unfortunately once again not reduced last year, but actually increased. Housing risks becoming unattainable for ever larger groups of people, partly due to rising interest rates and lack of supply in the housing market. There are still far too few affordable homes for home seekers. Construction costs are still high, and uncertainty about both the economy and the situation in Eastern Europe is not helping mobility in the existing housing market.
