This increase was especially noteworthy in Groningen. In the provice Noord-Holland the increase was lower than expected, namely 6.5%.

Apart from the average price increases, more properties transferred ownership, the CBS notes. The year 2020 showed an increase of 7.7%, compared to 2019, with 236,000 homes ending up with a new owner.
Earlier this January, NVM – a real estate agents’ association, commented that house prices were up almost 12% year on year by the end of December. The increase was strongest (22%) in Hardenberg, near the German border and most modest (3.4%) in Amsterdam.
These figures provided by NVM are based on the results provided by member real-estate agencies, which is about two thirds of all Dutch real estate agents.
