Hemnet on the housing market in April

12 May 2021

 | Non regulatory

  • Strong price expectations among home buyers 
  • High influx of new homes for sale 
  • Large sales volumes of apartments

The  Swedish housing  market in April continues  to be characterized by  high activity  and strong  price  expectations. The number of property listings was  higher  compared  to the same month  last  year.  The  proportion of home  buyers who believe in increasing  prices  is clearly rising from the previous month’s survey and is at  a historically high  level. A  figure  that  stands  out  in  the  April  report  is  the  number of apartments sold,  which  was  as much  as 31 percent higher  compared  with the  corresponding  month  last  year. However, the  statistics for April  on an annual basis are influenced  by both  Easter and Covid-19 effects,  which  can be  assumed  to  have  a  particularly  significant  impact  on the market.
