Stockholm - Housing

Stockholm is not like other major cities. There is a severe housing shortage and rentals are very difficult to find so you will need assistance to find a place to live. If you are planning on staying here for a longer period of time you may want to consider buying, although at the moment the demand far exceeds the supply with many prospective buyers for each apartment and house in attractive areas. New buildings within the city limits are very rare, most buildings are older than 1950.

Stockholm is surrounded by water and the expression that Stockholm is the "Venice of the North" was heard the first time in the early 16th century and is still used today. Each part of town has its own atmosphere and soul, and all neighborhoods within the city are attractive.
