Bloemendaal has become the first place in the Netherlands where the average house price has topped €1m, according to property research group Calcasa.

With house prices continuing to rise, the average amount paid for a home in the coastal town of 23,000 is €1,016,000, Calcasa said. Property values there are currently going up by around €870 a day.

The lowest price rises are in Pekela in Groningen and Brunssum in Limburg, where average house prices are increasing by just over €120 per day.  Nevertheless, the rises are still extremely large in historic terms and result in an annual increase of around €36,000 which is ‘more than the modal annual income’, Calcasa said.

Nationwide, house prices are rising at an average of €313 a day, Calcasa said.
