The average official value of Dutch homes rose 7% last year to €290,000, according to calculations by national statistics agency CBS.
The WOZ value, which is used to calculate local authority taxes, always lags at least a year behind actual house price rises.
Rotterdam booked the biggest rise of the big four cities, with 11.4%. By contrast in Amsterdam, official property values rose just 1.2%, well below the national average.
The leafy town of Bloemendaal has the highest average WOZ value, at €778,000. The lowest is once again in Pekela in Groningen, where the average is just €148,000.
