Abstract [en]

This thesis discusses the real price development on the Swedish housing market and the effects by qualitative variables. The housing market shows signs of being overpriced and this paper investigates if these qualitative values significantly effect the real price development. Valueguard Corporation has supplied Price development data. Focus magazine has supplied data regarding a large dataset for Swedish municipalizes which measures which state of quality of living prevailing in the investigated area. Empirical results show that qualitative variables and increased population have a positive effect on the real price development. Increased cost of interest rates has a significant negative effect on the price development. Increased amortizing rates and interest rates are assumed to slow down an unsustainable price development.
