The Swedish Real Estate Market

If you want to invest in foreign real estate, where should you look? According to Keith Knutsson, a strong and up-and-coming investment can be had in Sweden’s real estate market. According to the 2015 Swedish Property Barometer by Price Waterhouse Cooper, three positive results appeared to support the opinion that the Swedish real estate market is a great investment. These include:

  • 6 out of 10 companies expect rental income to increase
  • 54% of companies are planning to recruit
  • 83% prices in Swedish real estate market will increase

Why are these good news? Keith Knutsson sees these numbers as a positive sign for foreign investors because they show that real estate in Sweden is at a premium, hence the rising prices. More Swedish investing and real estate companies are hiring agents, indicating an active real estate market and greater need for agents.

It was noticed in the  Global Property Guide, that last year the Swedish economy grew by 4.5%, which is caused by lowering unemployment rates, low interest rates and a rising price index. In fact, the same article mentioned that the “nationwide house price index surged 10.64% over last year.” The shortage in supply of housing and low interest rates are the big factors contributing to the high house pricing.

According to World Property Journal, Sweden’s capitol city of Stockholm came in at number 9 on its list of the top 10 Global Commercial Markets for Investment. Six other European markets made the list. The commonality among the top European markets that make them appealing for investors are their liquidity and healthy economies. Stockholm’s booming tech industry also contributed to its high ranking.
