Nice places to live 10 - 20 min from Stockholm

Which surrounding places are the best?

That sounds like a 1st hand contract? Cheap for the size and location! You will find new apartments even on the Stockholm side of the bridge that cost for approx 11.000:-/m for 70sqm 1st hand.

Since you will most likely only be able to rent 2nd hand, if it is an apartment that is part of a BRF, then it is difficult to say what the rent will be, the law just changed this month and rents are already seen to be rising on new rentals, approx 20-30% ...but it will take a little time to get a clear picture as the market finds it's new level.

We're moving to Stockholm this summer with two babies - any recommendations on (1) where to live and especially (2) how does it work to rent a place? Looking online all the renting websites are in Swedish (understandably!) and blogs seems to read that landlords charge foreigners higher rents than locals. Any tips..? Budget 15000-20000Krn

You can find rental property on Blocket. If you use the Chrome browser it will translate for you.

Here is some property in the Stockholm region.
http://www.blocket.se/bostad/uthyres/stock...amp;f=c&f=b

You can limit the search by a specific area by using the "Välj plats" drop down field.

Normally there is a 1 month deposit which is only paid when the contract is signed. Never pay the deposit before, as there are scams.

It can be very difficult to find rental property in Stockholm because of the demand. It is harder for foreigners simply because Swedes prefer to rent to Swedes. You should estimate the process could take up to 6 months. (I rented an apartment in a village 40km from Stockholm and received 8 enquiries the first night - with many people sounding desperate).

This company offers furnished apartments. You might need to use something like this so that you are in Stockholm and can act quickly when looking for a long term unfurnished property

Get a public transport map and check SL website for journey times. If you can afford to buy, buy.
