According to the report, in the first quarter of 2018, residential property prices in Amsterdam rose by approximately 14 percent year-over-year, largely due to the increasingly scarce availability of on-the-market properties in the luxury real estate market.

It’s remarkable to think that less than two decades ago, the vast majority of consumers had never made an online purchase, while by the end of last year, e-commerce retail sales had reached $453.5 billion.

And as with the upending of the traditional retail industry, there will be winners and losers as the dust settles and the industry continues to evolve.
