A quirk in the Stockholm rental market made it one of the more interesting cities that I researched virtually since the start of the pandemic.
AIRINC Global Tax Director Pat Jurgens joined Benivo’s 'The View from the Top' on September 23 to provide the latest edition of global tax updates on the global mobility webcast.
In May 2020, I conducted a remote housing survey of Stockholm. I read extensively about Sweden’s herd-immunity approach to COVID-19 and how the government is not enforcing business closures.
The Stockholm housing rental market has been mostly stable over the last several months, despite a steady increase in demand. Rental units are challenging to find in this near-zero vacancy market and houses are especially limited. For new assignees, there has been an increase in demand for employer-backed leases and this trend is expected to grow.
