Hemnet’s Buyer Barometer March 2024: Price expectations continue to rise

6 March 2024

 | Non regulatory

Of the home buyers surveyed in Hemnets Buyers’ Barometer in March, 40 percent said they believed property prices would rise in the upcoming 6 months. This is an increase of 4 percentage  points since the corresponding survey in February. This means that the belief in rising property prices has increased for the fourth month in a row.


The proportion of buyers who believe in decreasing falling prices decreased by 4 percentage points in the same period. From 19 in February to 15 percent now in March. Overall, this means a net difference (the difference between those who believe in increasing and decreasing prices) of +26 percentage points. An increase for the fourth month in a row and the highest level since January 2022.


Percentage of buyers expecting:

Increasing prices: 40.3 percent (36.7% in the previous month)

Decreasing prices: 14.8 percent (19.3% in the previous month)

Unchanged prices: 44.9 percent (44.0% in the previous month)


Erik Holmberg, Market Analyst at Hemnet, commented:

“Homebuyers are increasingly convinced that the property prices will now increase as the impending interest rate cut approaches. This is now reflected in the actual price trend with a princely strong month of February. This reinforces the view that the property prices have bottomed out.”




Hemnet’s Buyers’ Barometer went out to 2,264 respondents between 1 and 4 March.
