Romania has the highest rate of homeownership in the European Union, Belgium outside the top 15

According to figures released by the Eurostat Statistical Office on Thursday, seven out of ten Europeans will be living in their own home by 2020 (or their family). While Belgium is in the middle (71.1%), it ranks 16th in the rankings, with a more consistent result than the previous year. In Germany, owners (50.4%) and tenants (49.6%) are equally distributed.

The percentage of owners is much higher in Eastern Europe: 96% in Romania, 92% in Slovakia or 91% in Croatia and Hungary. A reality that is generally explained by the wave of privatization that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union.
