Real estate in Finland. Finnish property prices
Real estate in Finland is popular among overseas property buyers because it is a wealthy Scandinavian state with high living standards and a steady political environment within the European Union. It is also true that foreign buyers are attracted to the affordable price tags on property in Finland in comparison to other countries of Western Europe.
Finnish properties near ski resorts, lakeshores and bays are actively sought after by foreign buyers and it is common to buy these houses as vacation retreats in south and southeastern towns like Imatra and Lappeenranta for example.
Property for sale in Finland costs €2,000/sq. m. on average and the highest price is €3,560/sq. m. in Helsinki. Pre-owned apartments in the east and north sell for about €1,400/sq. m. and the average buying price remained steady in Finland in 2013–2014.
