The Local _ Stockholm _ What salary percentage to pay for rent/utilities

Posted by: Switchkat 11.May.2018, 11:07 PM

Good day all.

My family and I will be moving to Sweden this summer for work. We've looked at renting a house for a few months until we find the right neighborhood and schools. I will be working in Kista, so we've been looking in the upper Stockholm county and having pretty good luck finding houses. The problem we're running into is we do not have a full sense of the cost of living yet.

My question, what is the average percentage people pay for rent/utilities per month? I see houses that fit our need and are large enough for four people, but looking at the monthly rent prices, they seem expensive. I know what I will be making per month (before and after taxes), but without knowing what the rest of my life will cost me, it's difficult to know how much I should expect to pay per month.

Any advice?

Thanks

Hey switchkat. I wanted to circle around and see if you had any details about your transition that you would share. I am curious the same, I am coming from a place where I make good money and understand the economics; the economic equality is not a bad thing in my mind but it does leave me questions about how the typical life is. I'm willing to integrate socially and accept changes, I just am curious as to what they look like.
