Sweden Warned on Housing Market

Sweden’s housing market could lose a tenth of its value after reaching a tipping point this summer, according to S&P Global Ratings, Bloomberg reported. The property market in the largest Scandinavian economy is “undergoing a transformation amid increased supply and the impact of new amortization requirements,” S&P credit analyst Sean Cotten said in a note on Friday. “We project prices could fall by 7-10% from their August peak before stabilizing in 2018.” Fears that Sweden’s property market is headed for a correction have already triggered currency losses, with the krona losing 2% against the euro last week. Central bankers have tried to talk down the concerns, but the bank has also highlighted the risks associated with soaring mortgage debt burdens. “Sweden’s economy remains strong, with unemployment falling and activity high,” the rating company said. “In addition, the majority of Sweden’s trading partners are showing positive economic momentum, and Sweden’s household savings and corporate balance sheets are robust. Consequently, we believe the banks we rate can maintain their current capital and earnings positions.”
