Prices over 26 percent up from dip in June 2013
In August 2008, house prices reached a record high. Subsequently, they fell to a low in June 2013. Since then, the trend has been upward. House prices are currently still almost 1.0 percent below the record level of August 2008 and on average 26.4 percent higher than during the price dip in June 2013. The average price level of owner-occupied houses in March 2018 was about the same as in July 2008.
