Prices of new dwellings rising faster only in the Czech RepublicWithin the European Union, a higher year-on-year increase in prices of new-build dwellings than in the Netherlands was only seen in the Czech Republic. The Netherlands still had the highest price rise in new-build homes around Europe in the previous quarter (Q3 2018).
Changes in owner-occupied house prices in the Netherlands combined are published in the house price index (HPI), which shows that Q4 prices were on average 9.3 percent up year-on-year. This indicates that prices of owner-occupied houses in the Netherlands increase over twice as fast as the European average. Only in Slovenia, Latvia and the Czech Republic were price increases even higher.
