Price index for office and business properties (discontinued)1st half-year 2004

Statistics Norway has decided to stop the publication of the Price index for office and commercial premises as from the first half of 2008. This is due to changes in the data basis, which is based on officially registered sales of these types of property. Since office and commercial premises are to an increasing extent owned by limited companies (which means they are not officially registered when sold), the data basis is diminishing. A limited data basis leads to more uncertain price calculations.

Prices of office properties up 9.1 per cent

Prices of office and business properties increased by 9.1 per cent from the second half of 2003 to the first half of 2004, according to the price index from Statistics Norway.

From the first half of 2003 to the first half of 2004, prices of office and business properties increased by about 17 per cent.

Since the first half of 1996, prices of office and business properties have increased by almost 87 per cent, while house prices rose by almost 102 per cent during the same period.

A total of 392 property transfers have been used in the calculation of the index for the first half of 2004.

Because of changes in the calculation model, the numbers are revised. Office and business properties with prices per square meter lower than NOK 1 000, are no longer included in the calculations.

Data sources

The data for the price index are obtained from two sources: the Ground Property, Address and Building Register (GAB) and a quarterly survey. The GAB register provides information on price and location of the properties as well as purchaser information. The sales may cover parts of buildings as well as one or multiple buildings. Transfers of properties in connection with ownership changes in limited companies are not included.

Analysis

Sub-indices for the three price zones "municipalities of Oslo and Bærum", "municipalities of Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim" and "rest of the country" are calculated using the hedonic method. These sub-indices are weighted and combined into the published index for the country as a whole. The weights represent the estimated total value of the stock of office and business properties within each price zone.

Other statistics

In addition to the price index for office and business properties, Statistics Norway produces statistics for all registered transfers of real property. The properties are divided into dwelling properties, holiday properties, agricultural/forestry/fishery properties, commercial/office properties, industrial properties, properties for communication purposes and other. In these statistics the average price per sale is calculated.
