Recent growth seen in the Swedish property market
over the past year will be sustained through 2011 thanks to the nation’s positive economic outlook and market performance.
Savills has claimed that investors will continue to favour the European destination, with residential opportunities becoming more apparent in the coming year.
The consultant noted that by the end of the first three months of 2011 the total turnover in Sweden reached SEK 19.5 billion, up from SEK 18.5 billion for the corresponding period of 2010.
This upward trend began last year as investment volumes increased each quarter in 2010 compared with the same quarters in 2009, Savills added.
In addition to this, Sweden's GDP has grown every quarter since Q1 2010, a trend which continues into 2011 with a positive GDP growth of 5.5 per cent expected by market analysts.
All of this has contributed to the country becoming an increasingly attractive destination for real estate investment
. Savills added that it has seen a "slight shift" in investors' interest from commercial properties to residential assets.
