In Sweden as in other countries worldwide people are constantly looking for place for livingand housing demand is very keen. The Government seeks to solve this problem in the mostefficient way, i. e. to build more houses for lesser resources with the highest possibleinvolvement of private entrepreneurs into the processes. The Government is eager to providecitizens with knowledge and tools allowing them to accomplish this task with minorassistance from the state. It is to ask which steps ought to be undertaken by people in order toget own place for living? Are those steps in Sweden complicated or customer-friendly? Whichadditional mechanisms shall be developed to reduce transaction costs?This paper presents some results of the Swedish national on-going project “Home BuildingGuide” (Bygga Villa1 in Swedish) aimed at creating E-government services in the processes ofpurchasing, planning, building, and living in home. This project has merged several nationalgovernmental authorities, business companies and universities into a consortium with aim todevelop one e-entrance to all information and other e-services related to those processes.The aim of this paper is to elucidate three specific property related processes that are now inoperation in Sweden, namely property subdivision, property purchase and getting a buildingpermit. The paper describes each of three processes separately and identifies their mainactivities and stakeholders involved as a background for research questions stated in the finalpart of this paper. Descriptions are followed by evaluation and concluding remarks outliningresearch questions. The processes are graphically represented on activity diagrams.
