The price index for existing own dwellings (in Dutch PBK) aims to reflect the changes in prices of the sold existing own dwellings. The dwelling must be located on Dutch territory and sold to a private person. In addition, figures on the number of transactions, the average selling price, and the total value of the selling prices of the sold homes are also available.
The price index figures for existing homes are based on a comprehensive registration of home sales transactions by the Kadaster and the WOZ values of all homes in the Netherlands. Index series can fluctuate. It is advisable to use the long-term trends of the price index figures.
The average selling price may show a different trend than the price index for existing homes. The development of the average selling price is not an indicator of the price development of existing homes.

Data available from: January 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 22 March 2024:
New figures for February 2024 are added.

When will new figures be published?
New figures are published about 22 days after the period under review.

Average purchase price
The average purchase price shows the average value paid in the period under review for dwellings sold to a private person and intended for permanent residence by a private person. These figures do not show the price development of existing own homes. For that purpose, you can use the price index of existing own homes.
Total value purchase prices
The total value of purchase prices is related to existing dwellings sold to a private person.
