Approaches for Institutional Investors in the Netherlands to increase the middle rent segment stock

Research question: How can institutional investors increase the delivery of the middle rent segment? The Dutch housing market is under pressure. Shifts on the drivers, structures and economic factors of the residential market are causing the middle-segment to be excluded from it. As a consequence, the middle-segment rental stock needs to increase. Institutional investors are willing to develop middle-segment rental dwellings, but they have already missed out on an opportunity of using available resources for this purpose. However, they still have a chance to do so with new investment funds. Therefore, the development process and the market of the middle segment was researched so that pitfalls that halt the delivery of the middle-rental stock could emerge.
