Ymere is an innovative housing association that develops and manages homes and other properties in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. We manage around 77,800 homes and 11,000 other properties (e.g. social and commercial real estate). This makes Ymere one of the largest housing associations in the Netherlands.
We reinvest the money we make in affordable housing for lower income groups and community projects. Our mission comprises more than providing a high-quality and comfortable home. We believe in communities that work, creating opportunities for our customers.
Ymere also invests in quality, sustainability and a clean and safe living environment. We work closely with government bodies and local businesses. We encourage the talent of young people in the areas where we are active: we deliberate with local schools and businesses to create jobs or internships.
