What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Sweden?

Answer this Question

We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Sweden is like. They answered...

"Expat homes and apartments in Sweden tend to be modern and well-equipped, with plenty of natural light and a neutral colour palette. Many apartments come with a balcony or terrace, and some even have access to a garden. Expats can expect to find a fully-equipped kitchen, a comfortable living area, and plenty of storage space. Most apartments also come with access to a laundry room and a shared outdoor area. Expats can also expect to find a variety of amenities in their neighbourhood, such as supermarkets, restaurants, and parks," remarked another expat who made the move to Sweden.

"We live in a second hand rental apartment which came unfurnished, with a fridge, oven and an electric stove. The rental includes heating and a car park bay. The apartment is about 3mins to the train stop, 2 mins to the Lake Malaren, 8-10mins on train to Stockholm city and close the the forest. Most expats live in apartments. If they are career expats, they might be in paid for villas with 3-5 rooms, fully furnished," explained one expat living in Stockholm, Sweden.
