Adding new homes to the market

“Housing shortage is a challenge in many parts of the country, and it’s important that Housing companies take social responsibility in building new-homes. We are happy to contribute in Bussum by adding new homes to the market and have ambitions to do similar acquisitions in the new-build segment in the years to come,” says Simon Kuijs, Investment manager at Heimstaden.
