Buying a HITAS home
New HITAS homes are bought from the developer. Housing production is the biggest developer in the Helsinki area. The developer markets and sells the new homes.
The mean prices per square metre for new HITAS homes are determined on a per project basis by the Real Estate Department of the City of Helsinki or the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland (ARA). The selling price of an apartment may differ from the mean price depending on the size of the apartment and on which floor it is situated.
