Three in four Europeans wish to live in an owned house

In January 2015, RE/MAX Europe conducted a survey among 16 European countries on the housing conditions of Europeans. The survey showed that right now almost two thirds (61%) of them are homeowners: 25% live in an owned flat whilst 36% in an owned house. Citizens of the UK and the Netherlands are the top house owners among Europeans (every second citizen), with people from Turkey and Spain at the forefront in terms of owning an apartment.
Looking at the 39% of people who rent their home, more Europeans live in an apartment than a house.
