In 2020, some 91% of Hungarians lived in a household that owned their home, according to data by statistical agency Eurostat.
The ownership rate in Hungary was the joint third-highest among member states, only behind Romania (96%) and Slovakia (92%). The rate of homeownership in Croatia stood at 91%, just as in Hungary.
At the other end of the spectrum, half of Germany's population lived in a household owning their home and the other half in a rented home. The shares of homeownership were low in Austria (55%) and Denmark (59%) as well.
Some 70% of the population in the EU lived in a household owning their home in 2020, while the remaining 30% lived in rented housing.
