Intentions to buy a home slightly increased

Last November, approximately every tenth consumer in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area was planning to buy a home according to the Statistics Finland Consumer Survey.  In Finland overall, the corresponding figure was 7 per cent. 5 per cent of consumers in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area would certainly buy a home within the next 12 months, whereas the corresponding figure in the entire country was 3.5 per cent. Approximately 5 per cent of consumers in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area would possibly buy a home and in the whole Finland, 3.5 per cent of consumers. The shares of consumers who would certainly or possibly buy a home were equally large on both examined sectors in November. In the Helsinki Metropolitan Area, intentions to buy a home increased compared to August, but in all of Finland, they were slightly lower.
