Map of Stockholm municipalities

What are the cheapest and most expensive areas to buy a house in Stockholm?

The top three most expensive municipalities are Lidingö, Solna and Danderyd. Norrtälje is the municipality with the lowest house prices in the Greater Stockholm Area followed by Nykvarn and Södertälje respectively. Generally speaking, the further out you go from the city centre, the more you will get for your money. Proximity to water also carries a premium, which explains the high prices on the suburban island of Lidingö. Österåker currently leads the field for the highest price increase over a 12 month period with an increase of 15%. Upplands Väsby was the only area with a negative price development of -1.9%.
