Choices on the housing market
Market Report May 2012
This report discusses the risks on the housing market. How great are they and do they change over time? An important housing choice that we all have to make is whether to rent or buy. Those who choose to buy their own home generally have a lower housing cost over time than those who rent, but they do have to bear a capital risk that a tenant does not. On the other hand, tenants bear the risk of rent increases.
This report is produced by Sweden's National Housing Credit Guarantee Board, BKN. As of October 1st have BKN and Sweden's National Board of Housing, Building and Planning become one joint Government authority.
