Average house prices in the Netherlands hit record high
Figures released by Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and the Land Registry show that in 2019, for the first time ever, the average price for a house in the Netherlands was more than 300.000 euros.
Average house prices are the highest they’ve ever been
Buying a house in the Netherlands has always been pricey and, unfortunately, it only seems to be getting more expensive. Last year, the average selling price for an existing, owner-occupied home was 308.000 euros in the Netherlands.
This marks the first time since 1995, when the Land Registry began to keep records of average house prices, that the average selling price has topped 300.000. Compared to 2018, the average selling price was higher in 326 municipalities.
The highest selling prices
The highest selling prices can, perhaps unsurprisingly, be found in Noord-Holland. Purchasing a house in this province, which includes the notoriously expensive Amsterdam, will set you back an average of 485.000 euros. In fact, eight out of the 10 most expensive municipalities can be found in Noord-Holland. By contrast, six of the cheapest municipalities are found in Groningen.
Top 10 most expensive and cheapest
The municipality of Bloemendaal, in Noord-Holland, is the most expensive place in regards to house prices, being the only municipality with an average selling price over 800.000 euros. At the other end of the scale, the cheapest municipality is Delfzijl, where the average selling price is 155.100 euros.
