After strong numbers for July my guess is that August will bring some positive news as well. Dutch media report that the bottom of the housing market might be in sight (as they did in 2009/2010/2011 and 2012). I guess we will see what will happen. I was wondering which months are historically the strongest (for the last 18 years) and which were the weakest months? It turns out that the first 8 months of the year are strong and the last 4 months are relative weak.
The two outliers in January and July are caused by a system change in the Netherlands related to tax deductability of the interest paid.
