Transition to homeownership in the Netherlands

In recent years, there has been a marked increase in academic and public attention in residential issues among Dutch young adults.
In this paper, we aim to expand the scope of the literature on homeownership among Dutch young adults by analysing the potential relevance of parental background and level of education on opportunities and timings of achieving owner-occupancy. Employing micro-level population register data from the Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek (CBS), we discuss the extent to which parental socio-economic status (SES) and educational attainment separately and jointly shape homeownership at crucial age milestones of young young adults in the Netherlands.
