The Nordic property market

May 16, 2016

When it comes to real estate markets in Europe, London, Paris and Berlin are amongst the typical cities one thinks of. But while these classic markets suffer from oversaturation, rising prices and low yields, other hidden gems have appeared on the horizon. In this context it might be worth to cast a glance northwards.


Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen are among the fastest growing cities in Western-Europe regarding population. Combined with a stable financial and political climate, modern infrastructure, high technology standard and a world leading environmental vision, the region emerges as an attractive alternative for property investors.  The Nordic property market is generally growing steadily with a good long-term outlook. The share of foreign investors investing in the Nordics has been increasing significantly over the past few years.

Based on transaction volume, Sweden stands out as the most active property market in the Nordics. While Stockholm is the fastest growing city of Europe in terms of population and Gothenburg and Malmö are known as stable logistic and industrial hubs, smaller economical regions within this triangle of the largest cities happen to become very attractive as well.

The Norwegian property market is the second biggest in the Nordics and the transaction volume has been showing a steady growth over the last couple of years. Just as in Sweden the retail property market is an emerging asset class.

Despite the fact Denmark is a smaller market regarding transaction volume; Copenhagen has come forth as one of the hottest new real estate markets over the past year, and this in all property segments: residences, retail and offices. Besides that, Copenhagen has proven to be an excellent haven for real estate developments. 

While Finland recovers considerably slower from the crisis than its Nordic neighbors, the recovery has shown to be reassuring over the last couple of years. Despite the ongoing high vacancy rate of office spaces in Helsinki the market is still very competitive, with a specific demand for more modern offices in good locations. The combination with the ongoing population growth in the city, offers great opportunities for property conversions.

Besides the Nordic Region, the Baltic region became an emerging market for foreign investors since Estonia (2011), Latvia (2014) and Lithuania (2015) joined the European monetary union during recent years. European investments that are planned over the next coming years are expected to give the region a massive boost.
