the Supply in the housing market is greater than in a long time, according to some, it becomes to record during ”the great visningshelgen”. An unusually large part of the apartments for sale are recurring items that have not been sold.
Veronika Oskarsson will not be surprised by the large range. She believes part of the reason is that sellers changed their behavior and accept what the market looks like.
– It applies to both sellers, buyers and brokers. Now we have started to see that there is a different tolerance to no longer receive 500,000 in profits in a year that you could get before, "she says, and continues:
– Many sellers have come to terms with the idea that you will have to settle for plus or minus zero, and you do not get it, try it one more time and it's okay," says Veronika Oskarsson.
for sale think the brokers do not there will be any problem to get visitors to the screenings.

She describes it as the speculators come to life again after the christmas and new year holidays.
" Many have been sitting at home during the leave, got new tanks and a lot has happened. We know that after the end of the year there are many people who start a new job or moving to a new city to study, so the demand for housing is great. The second half of January tends to be a good period and this year didn't stand out, " says Daniella Töre.
How the rest of 2019 will be it is, however, no one knows. Daniella Töre experiencing more and more sellers are worried for the prices.
– There are a lot of questions about it now. What you think about the market ahead, should I sell now or should I wait, buy first or sell first. The type of questions, " she says.
but the question of whether to buy first or sell first is easier. Both banks and brokers recommend nowadays to sell before you go into a new purchase, and it seems more and more have taken.
" For two or three years ago it was not at all unusual that people called me and said, ”hey, now I have bought an apartment. You can come so we can begin to compare brokers?”.
– So it is not at all anymore. Now we are in a much earlier phase of the sale than it had been before, " says Veronika Oskarsson.
Both she and Daniella Töre see the positive in 2019, and believe that the stabilisation of the housing market will begin to sink in with buyers as well as sellers.
