Sweden is a country of contrasts. The country of human rights but also of the exaltation of individuality, uncontaminated nature and innovation, of six months of light and six months of darkness. But this means only one thing: whatever your needs are, you can find your size in Sweden. If you are interested in moving and of course finding a property in Sweden, you just have to follow small steps ordered but essential for your winning investment. So... let's get started!
Let's start with the documents you need to be able to access this country. Sweden is part of the Schengen area, which means that European citizens need a valid passport, a residence permit not being renewed. For some specific countries it may be necessary to have a visa, which is why it will be mandatory to submit an application with attachments identifying the person to the Swedish embassy. After about two weeks the decision of acceptance or not will be communicated by the national agency.
After you have taken the first step on the basic documentation, you must necessarily shed light on a very important detail. Living in Sweden means abandoning stress altogether. Swedes love their free time and usually devote it to sport or family, surrounded by nature. To prove this, just think that security is the cornerstone and most representative of this nation, which stands as one of the main lands with the lowest level of crime. So, bye bye frenzy , welcome relax !
But if it is the serenity that you want to seek, work must be a prerogative of the first order.
Well, Sweden is the anti-unemployment country. There are so many rights and benefits that you can enjoy in this state. From maternity rights to parental leave, etc., there are many rights and benefits that you can enjoy in this country. There are six hours of work provided for by law (and not eight as in many other states). The reason for this choice is the Government considers this decision capable of improving productivity, avoiding dismissals and making more flexible the weekly hours, without depriving the individual worker of his autonomy and especially of his free time. And a further protection towards the individual is given by the multi-ethnic reality that allows anyone a free religious profession without prejudice. The same applies to sexual preferences. But Sweden is much more than that. The capital is the cradle of artists so much so that it is defined as the longest art gallery in the world.

And now, finally, the focus of our guide: where to buy a property
Among the main cities where to look for a property we remember without a doubt the capital, Stockholm, the city where you can easily find a job, Gothenburg, the most multi-ethnic area and the pleasant Malmo. Obviously, the main focus of the Swedish economy resides in its capital, which is why prices will be higher in Stockholm (from 200,000 euros) until you get to much more affordable figures (20,000 euros).
