Sharp rise in new flat blocks
The booming economy means more apartments are being built, but a smaller proportion of them are for rental properties.
Figures from Statstics Sweden (SCB) show that last year 24,900 apartments were built across the country. In 2009, during the financial crisis, the figure was just 16,805 - the lowest in ten years
This means a 48 per cent rise in total. But in 2009 almost two thirds of the apartments were for rent, while in 2010 this was down to less than half.
