Existing owner-occupied houses were on average 2.1 percent cheaper in March 2014 than in March 2013, versus 1.7 percent in February 2014 relative to February 2013. Although residential property prices were still below the level of the same month last year, the price level has remained fairly stable over the past 9 months. The price index of existing residential property – a joint publication by Statistics Netherlands and the Land Registry Office – reflects price changes of existing owner-occupied homes in the Netherlands.
