Abstract:In recent years, changes have taken place in the Dutch social housing as a result of economic and regulation developments. The credit crisis of 2008, along with several scandals, deteriorated the image and financial position of housing associations in the Netherlands. In response, the Dutch government wanted the social housing sector to become more efficient and transparent. Hence, housing associations began using business-like approaches and methods which, until then, were only used in commercial real estate organisations. To enhance the efficiency of the entire property portfolio it has become vital to have an understanding regarding the performance of individual housing complexes. Aareon did not have sufficient knowledge on which aspects and indicators are of importance to gain insight into the performance of individual complexes. The research objective of this thesis is thus to explore the concept of asset-management and to provide a solid advice on how to structure and design the concept within the (renewed) software products of Aareon.
