What is an indexed purchase price?
The indexed price is a correction to the original sale price. CBS periodically publishes the increase or decrease in house prices in the Netherlands. Indexed prices are generated by correcting the selling price. So, an indexed price is the purchase price today.

How is the indexed purchase price calculated?
The indexed purchase price is calculated by first determining the original purchase price of the house and multiplying it by an inflation rate. This inflation rate represents the house's price change when the buyer owns it. For example, if the house was bought two years ago, the inflation rate is calculated by comparing the price of the house today with the price of the home two years ago.
Why is the indexed purchase price important?
The indexed purchase price is essential because it reflects a more realistic house price. It helps buyers make a more informed decision about buying the house because it takes into account inflation and other elements that will change the value of the home over time.
