23 April - Buying or selling an apartment/a house in Sweden?

Are you looking at buying a house or an apartment in Sweden? Or maybe you are just tired of renting from private landlords and want to see what other options are available.

We have invited a real-estate agent from Bjurfors Real-Estate Agency, who will guide you through the legal differences and cultural clashes when it comes to buying real estate in Sweden. He has years of experience in selling property and has recognized that there exists much confusion when buying property in Sweden as the processes may differ from what an expat is used to from his/her home country. 

Before buying a property, we highly recommend that you attend this event in order to avoid as many cultural and legal surprises as possible.

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
