Finland: Economic freedom index, 5-year change
Increased economic freedom is strongly associated with high GDP growth, and therefore with rises in residential property prices. Changes in a countrys score on the Heritage Foundations freedom index are calculated by the Global Property Guide to produce a 5-point rating:
- Greatly Improved
- Much Worse
Source: Calculated using figures from The Heritage Foundation and the Wall Street Journal
Finland publishes good house price and rent statistics. The best source is Statistics Finland, though some longer time-series are in Finnish (asuntojen hintakehitys = dwelling price changes).
The Institute for Real Estate Economics has The Finnish Property Monthly, Quarterly and Annual reports. The Bank of Finland is a third good source (see statistics | prices and costs | domestic asset prices).
