Abstract [en]

70 percent of Sweden´s municipalities say they do not have vacant rental flats and a shortage is emerging, during the same time are 1.1 million young people ready to enter the housing market. In order to curb the housing shortage, have the Swedish politicians since the postwar period chosen to stimulate the market with subsidies to increase new production and to control that what is built is in the right direction. The construction industry is perceived as conservative, and many argue that the state keeps it under their wings, which has led to that the development not has progressed in the same way as other, non-subsidy regulated industries.

The purpose of ours bachelor thesis is to provide an overall picture and describe the underlying problems of the housing shortage at the rental market. In addition, we want to present theories about where possible actions could take place in the market, by illuminate the problem from the differente actors perspective.

To fulfill our purpose and provide a deeper understanding of the problem we have chosen a qualitative approach. We interviewed nine different actors on the Swedish housing market, two managers, two to representatives of Halmstad Municipality, a representative for the construction operators and four different interest groups. Respondents represent BI, Building Owners, HFAB, Jagvillhabostad.nu, Property and Real Estate Board, Halmstad municipality Riksbyggen, SABO and Tenants' Association. We have not found any previous study that has captured the whole picture of the market as we have done by allowing all market participants to express themselves and thereby give their views on the problem. With our theoretical framework as a basis, we designed the questions that were asked during the interviews.

We have accordingly concluded that actors already have made up with subsidies. The industry need not be dependent on subsidy, however, the needed housing policy that provides long-term thinking by cross-collaborations. The stimulus is not necessary for creating variation between the different tenure because municipalities through planning determines what and how it should be built. Thus, there will be housing for the entire market.
