Table description


This table shows the changes of the sale prices of existing own homes by
COROP and 25 biggest municipalities (more then 100.000 inhabitants on
01-01-2005). Besides the price indices, also the numbers sold, the average
purchase price of these dwellings and the total sum of the puchase prices
of these dwellings are published.
The House Price Index of existing own homes is based on a complete
registration of sales of dwellings by the Dutch Land Registry Office
(Kadaster) and Value Immovable Property (in Dutch: WOZ) of all dwellings
in The Netherlands.
Indices can fluctuate, for example when the number of dwellings sold in a
region is limited. In that case it is recommended to use the long term
change of the index.
The average purchase price of existing own homes may differ from the price
index of existing own homes. The change in the average purchase price is,
however, not an indicator for price developments of existing own homes.
For more information on this subject, see the article at chapter 3 "Why
the average purchase price is not an indicator".

Data available from: January 1995 - December 2012.

Status of the figures:
The figures are definitive.

When are new figures published?
This table is stopped as from 3-8-2013 and will be continued as House Price Index by region; existing own homes, 2010 = 100. See paragraph 3.
