Housing prices on the decrease
In a long-awaited trend, the too-hot Swedish housing market is finally showing signs of cooling down. Buyers are taking longer to purchase apartments and homes, and the boom in new construction which had seen record-level prices is now showing a downturn in major cities like Stockholm.

It's a downturn but finding a home in Sweden’s capital is still far from inexpensive; the average price per square meter paid in Stockholm City in October was well above $10,000 (approximately $1000 per square foot and not too far from the prices of co-ops in New York City).


Prices on co-ops fell nationwide by 6 percent in October (based on 6,191 closings). The research was done by Bjurfors Real Estate and the web service Booli.
