Stockholm's 2024 Rental Market: Trends and Rental Prices

Updated 2024-06-02

We've compiled data on average rental prices on CLOSED deals across metropolitan Stockholm. Interestingly, current rates are reminiscent of those from 2012-2013. For the first time since 06/2022, the falling rental prices have leveled out for apartments and prices are either flat or slightly increasing. House rentals have not yet turned around with the exception of Huddinge and Haninge. 

Corporate Housing Budgets:

A Shift in Trends Large corporations relocating employees to Sweden have undergone a noticeable shift. Generous expatriate packages are being replaced by more cost-effective mobility policies. This means relocated employees are now highly budget-conscious and focused on cost savings.

Sales Market Impact on Rentals:

  • The property sales market exerts a significant influence on rental availability:
  • Strong Sales Market: A booming sales market often reduces the number of rental properties available. Property owners prefer to sell during these high-demand periods.
  • Weak Sales Market: When sales dip, rental properties flood the market, increasing supply substantially.

We saw slightly higher average rental levels for closed contracts between private individuals and landlords. We believe this phenomenon is due to the popularity of corporate tenants on the market. Hence, they have more bargaining power. However, there is a trend of companies not signing leases for their employees which have increased the number of private rentals.
