Is it worth buying property in Sweden for a shorter period?

Are you moving to Sweden or currently renting here and considering buying property instead? Perhaps you are wondering if it might be cheaper to buy an apartment or house even in the shorter term, given current low interest rates and sky-high Swedish rental prices. Or maybe you are just tired of the insecurity of renting a home?

We help you work out if it is worth your while buying a property in Sweden

It is often easier and quicker to buy a property than to rent in Sweden. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good idea. It all depends on your particular circumstances. Uncertainty about the length of your stay in Sweden, job security and  alternative accommodation options and costs are also important factors which need to be considered.

Our property consultation service provides all the information you need

This consultation service provides you with complete information about the buying and selling process in Sweden, including a full overview of all the costs and risks involved, crucial factors which can be easily overlooked in a direct comparison of rental prices and mortgage payments. We can also advise you on safest options, based on market trends and developments and the likely investment security of locations or specific properties you are considering. Furthermore, we help you work out the real monthly cost of buying specific properties you are interested in or general budgeted examples, including  tax deductions and information on mortgage re-payment options. We also outline your options and obligations if you decide to leave Sweden to help you make a well informed decision.
