Living in: Stockholm
House prices in greater Stockholm have fallen from their peak in the first quarter of 2010. In 2011, prices fell 4.4% to an average of 409,000 euro. “However, the market is now slightly up, after having been considerably down for a year and a half,” said Kjellström. The properties available are mainly condos and apartments, and a typical two-bedroom flat costs around 500,000 euro. A few single-family houses come to market at 500,000 to one million euro, and rarely, a townhouse that can cost anywhere from 2.5 to five million euro.
