Housing remains one of the biggest challenges in the country. So where can you find the least expensive housing?
While in Luxembourg City, a flat can set you back up to 16,489 Euros per square meter, there are some localities where housing is still somewhat more reasonable.
For existing flats, Wiltz (4,026 Euros per sqm), Weiswampach (4,089 Euros), Clervaux (4,310), Troisvierges (4,322 Euros) and Parc Hosingen (4,855 Euros) have the lowest prices. This makes Wiltz the most affordable municipality in Luxembourg.
Of course, these are averages and prices can be lower depending on the individual property. Thus, the Observatoire de l'Habitat has found flats selling for less than 3,000 Euros per square meter in Mondercange (2,828 Euros), Esch-sur-Sûre (2,528 Euros) as well as Wiltz (2,598 Euros) and Clervaux (2,732 Euros).
What about new builds?
There is a large overlap for new builds or properties under construction, however the municipality ofLac de la Haute-Sûre has the cheapest housing under construction (3,971 Euros/sqm), followed byWeiswampach (4,125 Euros), Wiltz (4,289 Euros), Clervaux (4,430 Euros) and Bourscheid (4,833 Euros).
While most of these are in the far north of the country, they do prove that it's possible to find a property for less than 5,000 Euros per square meter in the Grand Duchy.
Again, individual prices will differ from these averages, so even cheaper properties were acquired for instance in Bettendorf (3,829 Euros per sqm), Pétange (3,876 Euros), Rambrouch (3,611 Euros) or Useldange (3,415 Euros). The very lowest price for a new build was identified in Weiswampach, with2,776 euros per sqm.
All these numbers were found in the latest report from the Observatoire de l'Habitat, which lists the sales prices per square meter from 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021.
