Most Dutch tenants unhappy with their rental home: report


Only 15 percent of renters in the Netherlands are satisfied with the home they live in, according to a housing index report by ING. Most common complaints involve that their rental home is too small or too expensive, RTL Nieuws reports.

Renters in the Netherlands feel that they pay too much for what they get. Many wish they had a garden or that their home was larger. 

Nearly 75 percent of people starting out in the housing market would prefer to buy a home instead of rent. But rising home prices make buying a home too expensive. And due to increasing demand and decreasing offer, actually finding a home to buy often proves impossible. 

Homeowners in the Netherlands are much happier on the housing market. Two thirds say they live in their ideal home.
