HELP ME, I’M LOOKING FOR A HOUSE WITH DESPERATE SPEED!

Where, how much, and for how long. These are the three clear questions that you should ask yourself when looking for a house in this wonderful city. Finding a home in Stockholm can be, in itself, a challenging task. The market for renters, especially for apartments in Central Stockholm of a certain square footage, is extremely limited. In this case, the where is not necessarily problematic given that Stockholm has an efficient public transportation system, that can take you from the outskirts of the city to the center in no time. It mainly comes down to preference between the city or having a bigger house in the suburbs. How much one is willing to spend depends primarily on how much you are willing to spend. Real estate in Stockholm is amongst the most expensive in Europe, but also in the world. Finally, for how long is the biggest problem of all. Often strict condominium rules prevent owners from renting out their apartment for more than two years. Whilst, in houses the problem does not pose itself.

WHICH DIFFICULTIES MEET IN THE RENT HOUSE IN STOCKHOLM?

The choice of the quarter

This depends often on where your kids will end up going to school, and also where your work is situated. Public transports operate extremely well, so with that the city is not very busy. The parking tariffs in the city are extremely high, which can be disuasive for many, in terms of relying on travel by car. Östermalm, Norrmalm, and Vasastan are the main traditional neighborhoods, wheares Sodermalm is more lively and youthful. Kungsholmen is a little bit  cheaper, with more modern infrastructure. In Lidingo and Djursholm you will find beautiful houses with large yards. 

The type of apartment or house

For houses everything is much more simple. They are less central, at times more economically conscious choices, as well as more spacious, with the possibility of having your own dock or pool. Large apartments are rare to find, with more than three bedrooms and two bathrooms being considered a ‘luxury.’ A lot of the time, the layouts are questionable with connecting bedrooms one after the other, like a walled up matryoshka that keeps on giving. The main part of the contract is often drafted through the company and the property’s owner. With that, it is often hard for independent parties to rent without any external support, with many people resorting to sub renting, which is illegal.
