Dwelling prices show signs of recovery in April–June

According to preliminary data, in April–June the prices of old blocks of flats and terraced houses rose by 3.9 per cent in the whole country from the previous quarter. In Greater Helsinki the prices rose by 5.8 per cent and elsewhere in the country by 2.3 per cent. Compared to the corresponding period of the year before, the prices of old dwellings in housing companies fell by 2.8 per cent in the whole country. In Greater Helsinki, the prices went down by 3.7 and elsewhere in the country by 2.1 per cent.

The average price for old dwelling per square metre was in April–June EUR 1,931 in the whole country, EUR 2,887 in Greater Helsinki and EUR 1,500 elsewhere in the country. These data derive from the statistics on the prices of dwellings compiled by Statistics Finland on the basis of the Tax Administration’s data. The preliminary data comprise roughly two-thirds of completed transactions in dwellings in old blocks of flats and in terraced houses.

In the second quarter of 2009, the prices of dwellings in new blocks of flats and terraced houses fell by 1.0 per cent from the previous quarter in the whole country. In Greater Helsinki the prices went up by 1.6 per cent, meanwhile in the rest of Finland prices went down by 2.4 per cent. The average price per square metre of new dwellings was EUR 2,738 in the whole country, EUR 3,525 in Greater Helsinki and EUR 2,454 in the rest of Finland. From previous year the prices in new blocks of flats and terraced houses went down by 4.5 per cent. In Greater Helsinki the prices went down by 0.7 per cent and in the rest of country 6.5 per cent. The data are based on the price information of the largest building contractors and estate agents.
