Number of residential real estate transactions in Belgium 1990-2017

This statistic shows the number of real estate transactions in Belgium in housing from 1990 to 2017. According to the source, the numbers provided concern 'ordinary houses' (in Flemish Dutch: gewone woonhuizen). This in contrast to other numbers, which cover 'villa's, bungalows and mansions', 'apartments, flats and studios' (in Flemish Dutch: villa's, bungalows, landhuizen) and 'building lots' (in Flemish Dutch: bouwgronden). The European housing, or residential real estate, market has recently shown clear signs of recovery, with an increasing house price being the main trend. In 2017, the total number of housing transactions in Belgium reached a value of approximately 68,536.

In recent years, the housing market in Belgium remained stable. Between 2005 and 2015 for example, the number of real estate transactions in housing in the Flemish region increased from approximately 39,500 transactions in 2005 to a value of approximately 43,000 transactions in 2014. This was due to Belgium's fiscal system. When purchasing a house in Belgium, consumers pay the asking price plus ten (in Flanders) or 12 percent (in Wallonia and the Brussels capital region) in registration rights. This makes buying a house in Belgium a long-term investment.
