Fast Comment Sweden — Housing prices rise in May; upward risk to our 2019 call for stable prices

  1. Annual housing price rise now steadily positive after a period of stabilisation
  2. Broad-based rise across the regions
  3. But risks to prices remain, and newly produced homes are still falling in price

Fast Comment Norway — Housing prices continue to rise at a modest pace (and the same goes for Oslo)

  1. Housing prices up 0.5 percent in May, up 0.2 percent in Oslo
  2. Both supply and demand are currently boosted; hence, small changes to the price trend
  3. We stick to our outlook of modestly rising housing prices

Macro Comment Norway — Short-term supply increases, but still stable housing prices

In seasonally-adjusted terms, housing prices have been fairly stable since last summer. This has also been the case for Oslo. The number of housing completions has risen, but demand has held up well. As a result, just minor price changes have been necessary to clear the market. In this Macro Comment we take a closer look at the supply-and demand balance for Oslo in particular, and underline that some common factors are currently driving both sides of the equation. We continue to forecast a further stabilisation of housing prices ahead.

Fast Comment Sweden — Like clockwork - housing starts continue to fall, hurting 2019 GDP roughly in line with our longstanding forecast

  1. Downward trend - neither housing starts nor building permits have turned a corner
  2. Regionally, some cities fare better, but waning construction not isolated to Stockholm
  3. Today's data does not materially change our near-term GDP outlook, but positive risk for Q1 next week?

Fast Comment Sweden — Smooth sailing, housing prices remain stable

  1. Housing prices rose slightly in April and remain higher than a year ago
  2. Flats and houses are, to some extent, two different stories at the moment
  3. Threats and opportunities, with shaky global backdrop but lower interest rates

Fast Comment Sweden — Prices, prices, prices! Triple treats in week ahead: CPI, inflation expectations and housing prices

  1. Expected pickup in April inflation might appear temporary at first glance...
  2. ...but we increase our near-term outlook, albeit maintaining a downbeat view for next year
  3. Are inflation expectations sliding, as the Riksbank governor claims? Plus, slight rise in housing prices expected
