If you have not spent a lot of time in Sweden, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...

"Buying a home in Sweden can be a great investment, as the country has a strong economy and a stable housing market. However, it is important to consider the costs associated with buying a home, such as the cost of the property, taxes, and fees. Additionally, it is important to consider the length of time you plan to stay in Sweden, as buying a home may not be the best option if you plan to move in the near future. Renting a home in Sweden can be a great option for those who are not ready to commit to buying a home, as it allows for more flexibility and can be more cost-effective in the short-term," remarked another expat who made the move to Sweden.
