Average dwelling value for the years 2013 thru 2019.

The house value is based on the average WOZ value for all dwellings in The Netherlands. WOZ is the abbreviation for the Act of Immovable Property valuation. This value is determined yearly by the local government and used for several legal and taxation purposes.


Determination of the real estate value (WOZ value):
When determining the average dwelling value, only real estate objects are included that are registered as homes (main residence or home with practice space). The (provisional) average home value is determined with the valuation date of the previous year (this is based on the WOZ, the Real Estate Valuation Act).
