Lithuania: 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

Lithuania does not publish an official house price or rents time-series. The real estate firm Inreal published annual prices and rents for Vilnius from 1998-2007. Ober Haus, another private firm, publishes monthly average apartment prices in Vilnius and a monthly apartment price index for Lithuania's 5 largest cities. General economics statistics for Lithuania are published by the Bank of Lithuania and the Statistikos Departamentas, which keeps construction and stock of dwellings figures, but no house prices or rents.
