Homeowners with and without an outstanding mortgage in EU-28, per country 2017

This statistic shows the home ownership rate in the EU-28, split by whether or not having a mortgage loan. It provides an overview of how many people within each member state of the European Union are an owner-occupier either with or without an outstanding mortgage in 2017. In 2017, 72.7 percent of the total population in Belgium was a homeowner. 42.9 percent of the total population was a homeowner with an outstanding mortgage, whilst 29.8 percent was a owner-occupier but without a mortgage loan. An average 24.7 percent of the total population within the EU-28 in 2017 was an owner-occupant with a mortgage or housing loan. The share of the population was lower in Eastern Europe and the Baltic states, as well as in Italy, Germany, Malta, Austria, Cyprus and Greece. In contrast to this are countries like the Netherlands and Sweden, where the percentages reached 61 and 52.2 percent respectively.

The European housing market, or residential real estate, has recently shown clear signs of recovery, with an increasing house price being the main trend. Eight years after the financial crisis, the majority of property markets in Europe have gained momentum with only a few still on the mend or lagging behind. For example, between the start of 2014 and the end of 2015, Romania and Portugal were among the countries which experienced an increase in housing prices, whilst the prices in Slovenia and Italy decreased.
