Hemnet on the housing market in June

7 July 2021

 | Non regulatory

  • Fewer buyers believe in rising property prices
  • Monthly record for the number of listed houses and apartments in June
  • Highest number of house sales in a single month

The share of visitors that believe in rising prices decreased significantly in The Buyers’ Barometer for July and the share believing in falling prices increased moderately. At the same time, the high level of activity in the housing market that we have seen during the spring continued, particularly in the house market.

Throughout much of the pandemic, the number of listed houses has been low, but now there has been a clear break in the trend with a high influx of new houses for sale. This, combined with continued strong demand, led to a record number of sales in June, but with the average difference between the starting price and the closing price narrowing slightly.

The apartment market was also very active in June. Overall, there is much to suggest that this trend will continue and that we will have a high level of activity this summer as well, similar to the summer of 2020.

”We have had a high demand for houses over the past year, but the number of sales, which have been at high levels, has been held down by low supply. In recent weeks, however, the number of listed houses has risen sharply and we are seeing this unusually high level of activity with a record number of house sales,” says Erik Holmberg.
