House prices in Sweden are still on the up, according to recent figures from SCB (Statistics Sweden).

In Stockholm prices have remained high but stable over the last quarter with the cost of a small house rising by just over 1% compared to the previous quarter.

In Uppsala, Gotland, Blekinge, Dalarna and Gävleborg prices have actually fallen.

Prices were consistent in Värmland while Sweden's other regions saw an increase of between 1% and 4%.

The steepest increase in house prices over the last year has taken place in Halland (18%), Kronoberg (14%) and Västra Götaland (11%).

Nationally, house prices have increased on average by 9%, one percent more than the average rise in apartment costs.
