The lowest figure this century came in 2009 when 153 dwelling houses were sold. The record high came in 2015 when the figure hit 398. The past two years have seen a decline in house sales across the country, especially outside the capital region.
Tórshavn still has the highest average price for a dwelling house, currently at DKK 3.9 million compared with DKK 2.2 million in towns and small cities and DKK 1.8 million in villages.
It is important to note that these figures only cover dwelling houses and not terraced houses and flats.
