The site contains information on the city’s owner-occupied homes, that is, Hitas homes, buying them, selling them and new Hitas buildings.
Hitas homes are owner-occupied housing intended for residents of the city, the price of which is regulated. Hitas homes are usually more affordable than the market price, but there is also an upper limit on the selling price of the homes. Hitas homes are always located on a rental plot owned by the City of Helsinki. Thirty years after the completion of a Hitas company, the company can be exempted from price regulation.
It has been decided to abandon the current Hitas system in the coming years. The design of a new system has been initiated in order to ensure affordable owner-occupied housing for city residents. However, the current Hitas homes will remain subject to regulation for at least 30 years after completion, so the reform will not apply to Hitas homes that have already been completed or are under construction.
Hitas housing is developed by the city’s own Housing Production and private developers in different parts of the city.
You can search for the buildings of private developers on the websites of each developer. You can find out more about the buildings built by the city on the Housing Production website.
