You can buy a house if you can transfer the full price agreed from your country to Sweden - many people from other countries do this to get a holiday home

However owning a house in Sweden does not give you any rights to move to Sweden full time - and the banks are unlikely to lend you money

you could only stay legally for 90 days each time as you would not have residence

how would you pay the running costs on the apartment? the monthly fee etc without a work permit?

ah, but you see that if you get a flat in Sweden you do not own it outright. It's more like buying into a co-op. You need to pay a monthly fee each month and you will also have insurance and bills to pay

Solution to what? What do you want to do? Are you coming for 90 days per six months for holiday? Do you want a place in the city? Stockholm?, vacation home in the country? Be more specific if you want a solution. Good luck.

a cooperative flat (bostadsrätt) will come with a monthly fee (avgift) regardless of how much/little you are in the flat.

yes of course, i know the fact that no matter if you are or not in the apartment you still pay the monthly fee (avgift), but could i buy it as a non swedish citizen?

With an injection of cash that you will have to bring in to buy that you will have to be prepared for questions from the authorities. Sweden and property within it's borders has been used for money laundering in the not too distant past
