Austria: Property rights index
A subcomponent of the Index of Economic Freedom, the property rights index measures the degree to which a countrys laws protect private property rights, and the degree to which its government enforces those laws.
Higher scores are more desirable, i.e. property rights are better protected. Scores are from 0 to 100.
The index also assesses the likelihood that private property will be expropriated and analyzes the independence of the judiciary, the existence of corruption within the judiciary, and the ability of individuals and businesses to enforce contracts.
The Global Property Guide considers protection of property rights as a significant factor affecting the desirability of a residential real estate investment.
Austria generates quarterly house price indices for Vienna and for all-Austria, based on private sources, but no actual house prices, and no rents data. The house price indices are available from the Oesterreichische Nationalbank (Central Bank). Good general economic statistics come from Stastik Austria.
