About Hemnet

The biggest property portal in Sweden

Hemnet operates the leading property platform in Sweden. We emerged as an industry initiative in 1998 and has since then transformed into a "win-win" value proposition for the housing market. By offering a unique combination of relevant products, insights and inspiration, Hemnet has built lasting relationships with buyers, sellers and real estate agents for more than 20 years. We share a mutual passion for homes with our stakeholders, and are driven by being an independent and obvious place for people to turn to with the various needs for housing that arise throughout life.

Hemnet brings the highest number of visitors and the largest inventory of listings for sale in one place, with a loyal visitor base and 51.1 million average visits per month (January-December 2022). In 2022, 52.6 million hours were spent browsing on Hemnet, meaning that every Swede spent an average of 30 minutes a month on Hemnet. Hemnet is also one of the most recognised and trustworthy Swedish media brands. In YouGov’s brand tracking for 2022, covering the strongest brands in the media business, Hemnet was ranked fourth in terms of reputation as an employer and fifth in terms of image.
