A total of 27,000 new dwellings were completed in 2015, of which 37 per cent were rented dwellings, according to Statistics Finland.
Around 8,000 of the completed dwellings were new non-subsidised rented dwellings, which is nearly four times more than interest-subsidised rented dwellings.
Of the buildings completed in this decade, on average, two times more are non-subsidised rented dwellings than interest-subsidised ones.
Thirty-three per cent of these non-subsidised rented dwellings and 43 per cent of interest-subsidised rented dwellings are in Greater Helsinki.
At the end of 2015, the number of permanently occupied rented dwellings in the whole country was 838,000, of which 61 per cent were non-subsidised rented dwellings the data show.
The dwellings freed from arava restrictions increased the number of non-subsidised rented dwellings.
The dwelling production of housing funds and other national rental housing companies has also increased the stock of non-subsidised rented dwellings.
Non-subsidised rented dwellings also include dwellings rented by private individuals.
In relative terms, large towns have the highest number of rented dwellings, around 40 per cent of permanently occupied dwellings. Forty-four per cent of permanently occupied dwellings
in Greater Helsinki were rented dwellings and nearly one-half of dwellings in Helsinki.
In all, 20,500 persons were first-time buyers of dwellings in housing companies in 2015.
The number of first-time homebuyers grew by around 400 from the previous year.
Most first-time homebuyers were living in large towns.
In 2015, the number of first-time homebuyers in Greater Helsinki was 7,200, which is around 600 more than in the year before.
The number of first-time homebuyers decreased in the rest of the country. The number of first-time homebuyers has fallen in Finland by 14,000 from 2006.
The average age of a first-time homebuyer was 28.3 in 2015, having been 27.7 in 2006.
