The average price per square meter increased by 4.6 percent to €2,040 in October, which is an all-time high in Estonia.
The most expensive apartment in the capital was sold in October for €945,000 and the cheapest apartment for €2,500. The most expensive dwelling house was sold for €650,000 and the cheapest for €14,000.

"Renting is more of a temporary solution for most people now that renting and buying costs the same monthly amount. The apartment is also a pillar of retirement, and I do not advise anyone to rely too much on the state in retirement."
