Erik Holmberg, Market Analyst at Hemnet, commented:
“The trend of slightly decreasing price expectations among property buyers that we observed in the autumn continued in November. We now appear to be very close to the peak in interest rate. Signals as to how long interest will remain at this level will probably be important for price expectations. And thus also for how prices will continue to develop”.
Hemnet’s Buyers’ Barometer went out to 2,049 respondents between 1 and 3 November.
