  2. Prices are slightly higher than a year ago

Small change in the seasonally adjusted number
In June, housing prices decreased by 0.5 percent compared to May, according to the HÓX index. The seasonally adjusted monthly figure increased by 0.3 percent. The number is clearly in line with the stable and close to flat developement seen since more than a year. The numbers support our view of a continued stable trend in Swedish housing prices.
Prices are slightly higher than a year ago
Apartments did better than houses, in general, for the month of June. Looking at prices compared to a year ago the main index is up 1.9 percent, apartments are up 1.6 percent and houses by 2.1. Malmö has developed developed best over the last year. One reason to that might be increased interest from Danish byers, due to the weak Swedish krona.
First half of July indicate stable prices for apartments in the big cities
In addition to the usual monthly survey, Valueguard also presented numbers for apartments in Stockholm and Gothenburg for the first half of July. It shows an increase in Stockholm of 1 percent and unchanged prices in Gothenburg.
