Hemnet on the housing market in May
- Continued short sales times
- High number of listed apartments
- Price expectations are declining somewhat from a high level
The housing market in May continues to be characterised by a high level of activity as seen throughout the year. Sales times remain at record low levels and there is a demand higher than supply, despite a large volume of listed apartments. Looking at price, the average difference between the starting price and final price is increasing. Price expectations amongst consumers are decreasing some compared to April but are still on a high level.
When comparing May statistics year-on-year it should be noted that May 2020 was unusual, with a worried and slow market clearly affected by corona and worries for potential lock downs.
- Price expectations are now declining slightly compared to last month. Maybe there may be some effect that the society starts opening up and that the mortgage repayment requirement is coming back. But it should be said that the price expectations are still on a high level and that the decline is relatively small, says Erik Holmberg market analyst at Hemnet.
