Even in a small town like Sandviken, the waiting times are around a year. My wife and I were living in a private place, which we passed on to her brother since she had enough points. The waiting times are a bit extreme... the private places are a bit more expensive I'm guessing as well? Our place was 95m2 and cost 8,800 if I remember correctly. Meanwhile, our new place through the city which is a lot nicer, but still the same size, costs only 7k.

Lets state the facts here. Wallace you are STUPID!

If you had any decent qualifications, and worked for a reputable company, they would have paid for a lawyer and you would have a work permit. Simple as that.

But instead, you are a low skilled asshole, with zero skills worth Sweden keeping.
Rightfully you were rejected.

Leave Sweden you miserable fuck, and stop posting bullshit and blaming Sweden for your lifes failures.

You are not wanted in this country, just as much as you post so much hate on Sweden. LEAVE SWEDEN.

Personal attack that that does not contribute the the thread. Plus you are making a bunch of assumption that are wrong.

What matters more than a person's qualification is the demand for them in that country and if that demand generates sufficient salary to live off.

Woman had to wait ten months for accommodation

QUOTE
The Authority believes that the waiting period should not exceed three months.

"Depends on housing shortage"

Kungsbacka municipality is of the opinion that the reason for the delay depends on the lack of housing in the municipality. They also mean that the woman has had security alarms and help in the home with 66 hours per month.

Pep... sounds like a great example of why you shouldn't be on a state housing list when there are those which need extra support from other services in the queue as well.

If you like me, chose to travel here of our own free will, then we shouldn't be taking housing from those who might not be fully capable physically or mentally.

Edit. I'm making the presumption you realise this was a woman waiting for a specialist care home or some form of secured sheltered housing. Not a flat or apartment.

Why should an immigrant have to pay an inflated cost for rent just because they are an immigrant?

You say that the housing lists for first hand contracts should be left for native Swedes and immigrants should have to pay higher in the private or black market?

That’s discrimination. Discrimination you impose upon yourself... weird.

The housing system in Sweden is broken.

Stable housing should not be made so difficult to obtain or at higher costs just for being an immigrant.

A lot of people tell pepito to move back but they have said they make good money. They obviously have an apartment... but... what old diaper wearing Gamla doesn’t get, dementia, is that it isn’t a stable situation and that someone who is working and paying taxes should not be forced to move around every six months or a year or have to pay inflated costs because the system is broken.

What...

You are obviously trolling but I'll take the bait anyway.

No. State housing should be for vulnerable people or those in real need of any nationality.

But healthy eu migrant workers, with a job, should be the lowest priority. If someone like in his example above joins the list, they take a place above the healthy full faculties eu migrant worker. We presuming you are one too, aren't a special case at all.

You can rent privately in Sweden, not just from the state. Is it over regulated as you say. Or is it not regulated which allows 2nd hand contracts, private tenant association to approve future tenants etc ? Can't be both?

if everyone was allowed to rent their apartment to whoever they choose to without needing approval from the housing association, watch how Stockholm scarce apartments to rent will disappear overnight, someone told me there are over 100K empty apartments in Stockholm, there are individuals with more than 1 property, this is artificial scarcity due to strict laws in Sweden unfortunately

Housing shortage in the country increasingly worse - "young people cannot afford to buy"


QUOTE
The difficult housing shortage in Sweden is about to worsen further, according to the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning. Nevertheless, the housing issue has a desire with its absence in the election movement. But today there are games and suggestions from both the government camp and the alliance side.
- Young people with ordinary income cannot afford to buy a regular one. So we just can't have it, says Mats Persson (L).



And here the most interesting part of how the system promotes buy only in a subtle way.

QUOTE
- There should be rental apartments in Sweden. But we want to send a clear signal that it is good if people own their own accommodation, says Mats Persson, financial-political spokesman for the Liberals.

Forgotten election question - thousands of young people in housing queue


QUOTE
We may have answered 50 ads, but we usually get the message that it is already rented out if we get any answer at all, says Emma for SVT Västernorrland.


QUOTE
Six of seven municipalities in Västernorrland have, according to the National Board of Housing, Building and Planning, "imbalance" in the housing market for young people. Only Ånge has a balance, but in other municipalities there is a shortage of the type of housing that is relevant for young people - rental apartments.



QUOTE
For those who have money, there are condominiums to buy, but there is no solution for Emma Nettelbladt. She does not have the money and does not believe that the banks are willing to lend. A newly produced second on the Northern quay in Sundsvall costs from 1.7 million upwards.

- No to buy a home is not a solution for us and I believe that this applies to many other housing seekers as well. We are looking for a rental right for 5-6,000 a month. We can afford that.

There's always going to be shortage housing in Sweden while capitalism exists.

Building new homes to suit needs would mean a downfall in house prices and in turn will see rents go down and that's not good for the small amount of people who deal in land and property. The moderate party are to blame for this by allowing property's to be sold to the highest bidder. Useful to know also is the moderate party want to allow landlords to raise rents freewill.
In the old socislist days houses where always being built to keep up with needs. This kept house prices and rents stable thus buying and rent was easy.

So until times change, getting a home is going to get even harder.

Of course there are other alternatives.
