Investment decisions in real estate development : A study about which factors that control investment decisions for construction and real estate companies. (English)
Abstract [en]

Problem description: The Swedish housing situation is a complex matter. For the last couple

of years the construction rate has been high, but the housing shortage continues to be a

problem. A lot of people can’t afford the homes that are built. The market has been in favor

for real estate developers for a few years now. They’ve been able to develop expensive

projects which they’ve easily been able to sell. As the economy changes more and more

people will face difficulties in financing the expensive homes on the housing market.

Research question: Which factors control investment decisions for construction and real

estate companies regarding their real estate development?

Purpose: The primary purpose of the study is to identify and describe how privately-owned

real estate and construction companies manage investment decision, and the factors, choices

and priorities in which the investment decision is based on.

The study aims to analyse empirical data with existing theories to widen the understanding of

how construction and real estate companies make their investment decisions and their choice

of path in their real estate development.

Limitation: The study does not incorporate businesses outside of Sweden, nor does it

incorporate any other fields within real estate, such as management or agencies, than real

estate development.

Methodology: The study is qualitative to gain deeper knowledge and information in the area,

and interviews were conducted with six of the largest construction and real estate companies

in Sweden.

Conclusion: There are several factors behind the investment decision made by real estate

developers, and the impact they have on the housing market. Economic cycles have made it

profitable for real estate developers to invest in new developments, which has led to increased

housing prices. The local councils have had an increased impact in the development process,

resulting in difficulties keeping the costs down. There has also been an overbalance in

developing new projects instead of existing real estates, because the market for new projects

is more lucrative. Private real estate companies are primarily interested in generating as much

profit as possible, leading to them investing mostly in condominium apartments.
