The average selling price of an owner-occupied home in Leiden increased in 2020 by 10,000 euros to 359,000 euros. That is below the national (26,500 euros) and provincial (28,500 euros) increase. This is evident from figures from Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and the Land Registry.
In the Leiden region, the sales price rose the most in Zoeterwoude, with an increase from 97,500 euros to 403,900 euros in 2020. The average sales price in Leiderdorp, at 343,268 euros, is the lowest in the region. The most expensive municipality is Oegstgeest, where an average of 497,000 euros was paid for a home in 2020.

In Voorschoten, an average of almost 456,000 euros was paid for a home in 2020. A year earlier, the sales price was 6.4 percent lower. After Oegstgeest, Voorschoten is the most expensive municipality in the region. In 2019, the difference in the average sales between the two expensive municipalities was approximately 5,000 euros in favor of Oegstgeest. Due to the enormous increase in Oegstgeest, the difference in 2020 has increased to more than 41,000 euros.
The sales price in Zoeterwoude was approximately 24 percent lower in 2019 than in 2020. The sharp increase strongly depends on the number of homes sold and the type of homes. In 2019, the sales price fell from 363,000 euros in 2018 to 306,000 euros and in 2020 came to 404,000 euros.
