    The average price in Belgium for an attached or semi-detached house increased again in the first half of 2019, amounting to 200,000 euros, Statbel Statistics Belgian Office said on Thursday.

    The price of a detached house (4 plus façades) remained at 294,000 euros and a flat  at 186,000 euros. Wallonia remained the cheapest area and Brussels the most expensive.  

    In Wallonia, the median price of an attached or semi-detached home reached 145,000 euros during the same period; 230,000 euros in Flanders and 399,000 euros in Brussels Capital Region.
