The WOZ value (Value Immovable Property) is the valuation of homes by municipalities, based on sales prices, type of home, size and location. It concerns all homes, including rental homes and unsold owner-occupied homes. The number is used for the tax return, a mortgage and for the amount of municipal taxes (ozb, waste levy and sewerage levy).

The WOZ value of a house is about a year behind the actual price, because the houses are appraised on 1 January at the actual value on 1 January the year before.
