Since the start in 1998, Hemnet has developed into Sweden's most popular property platform and an obvious meeting place for brokers, home sellers and buyers to meet. Our vision is to increase the efficiency, mobility, and transparency in the property market, and we do it by building the best search tools for buyers to find their dream homes, helping the real estate agents to grow their business, and the property sellers to find the right buyer for their home. Simply make the housing market easier - whether you are selling or buying a home.
During 2021 every Swede spent 37 minutes per month on Hemnet buying, selling, or dreaming about a house. The love for our product is what keeps us going, and while we know that we are a helping hand for many Swedes in their home-hunt already, we believe that we can do more, and we can do better.
