Table description


The figures of existing own homes are related to the stock of existing own homes. Besides the price indices, figures are also published about the numbers sold, the average purchase price, and the total sum of the purchase prices of the sold dwellings. 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 the (WOZ) value of all dwellings in the Netherlands. Indices may fluctuate, for example if a small number of a certain type of dwellings are sold. In such cases we recommended using the long-term figures.
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, however, is not an indicator for price developments of existing own homes.

Data available from: 1st quarter 1995

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are immediately definitive. The calculation of these figures is based on the number of notary transactions that are registered every month by the Dutch Land Registry Office (Kadaster). A revision of the figures is exceptional and occurs specifically if an error significantly exceeds the acceptable statistical margins. The numbers of existing owner-occupied sold homes can be recalculated by Kadaster at a later date. These figures are usually the same as the publication on Statline, but in some periods they differ. Kadaster calculates the average purchasing prices based on the most recent data. These may have changed since the first publication. Statistics Netherlands uses figures from the first publication in accordance with the revision policy described above.

Changes as of 31 July 2020:
Figures of the 2nd quarter 2020 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
New figures are published about 21 days after the period under review.
