Abstract [sv]

En flippers roll på marknaden avser individer som köper bostäder- och fastigheter, antingen

på den nya marknaden eller på eftermarknaden, i syfte att tjäna på bostäderna och därmed

aldrig flytta in i dem. Deras investeringar kallas för spekulantköp och har blivit vanligare de

fem senaste åren. En flippers effekt på bostads- och fastighetsmarknaden är att dem skapar

och påverkar marknadens prissättning. Denna studie har använt en induktiv forskningsmetod

som kombinerar litteraturstudier och en empirisk ansats i form av intervjuer. Det har gjorts

tre intervjuer med Boklok, Abacus och Järntorget bostad. Även intervjuer med FMF och

teoretiker Hans Lind. Flippers investerar som mest i centrala Stockholm enligt antydning från

FMF och är aktuella på båda marknaderna: den nya marknaden och eftermarknaden. Generellt

finns ingen negativ syn på flipping, men farhågor existerar kring hur affären görs och i vilken

utsträckning den kan påverka andrahands köpare och vad som skulle hända om marknaden

vänder – och då hur konsekvenserna av flipping lägger sig hos byggherrarna. Resultatet visar

att flipping kan medföra negativa konsekvenser i köpprocessen vid nyproduktion som medför

störst risk om marknaden svänger, samt hos andrahandsköpare som kan få problem efter

tillträde då flipping gjorts under felaktiga premisser.

Abstract [en]

A flippers role in the market refers to individuals who purchase real estate, either in the new

market or on the after market in order to serve the housing and thus never move into them.

Their investment is called speculator investments and has become more common the last five

years. A flippers effect on housing and real estate market is that they create and affect market

pricing. This study has used an inductive research method that combines literature and an

empirical approach representing interviews. There have been three interviews with real estate

companies: BoKlok, Abacus and Järntorget Bostad combined with interviews with FMF and

theorist Hans Lind. In Sweden, Flippers are investing most in central Stockholm, according to

hints from the FMF but are current in both markets. Generally there are no negative view of

flipping, but concerns about how business is done and to what extent it can affect other hand

the buyers and what would happen if the market turns - and the consequences of flipping folds

of the developers. The result shows that flipping can have negative consequences in the

buying process of new construction when it is it brings the greatest risk of market swings, and

of second-hand buyers who might have problems after admission if flipping was done under

false pretenses.
