Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Since the beginning of the century the share of incorporated brokerage firms have increasedfrom 17 to 70 percent and 10 of the 12 largest companies are franchised. Fastighetsbyrån,Svensk Fastighetsförmedling and Länsförsäkringar made up over 50 percent of the market in2014. The purpose of this study is to examine whether an increase in the share of franchiseoffices on the brokerage market affects competition. An econometric model of the Herfindahl-Hirschman index is specified, and attempts to answer what affects market concentration. Theregression results show that the share of franchised offices does not have a significant effecton competition. They show instead that it is the number of brokers that affects thecompetition. The conclusion is that it is the individual brokers who compete, even within thesame firm and office. Competition is carried out at the broker level, between competitors aswell as colleagues.
