Move in with freedom to move – welcome to Brf Valsjöskogen!

Do you dream of a nice, new home close to nature? Where the kids can swap the screen time for playing outdoors or swimming in the ocean? Then, you’re in luck! Here in lovely Åkersberga, we’re planning to build new semi-detached houses and terraced houses – all within the same housing cooperative. Easy living in the form of tenant-ownership, a secure form of tenure, with just the right combination of freedom and responsibility.

Living next door to nature

Brf Valsjöskogen invites you to a life in peace and harmony with nature next door and everyday service, like preschool and grocery store, at hand. Here, you can open the door and breathe in the fresh air, have a barbecue in the garden, hang out with the neighbours or why not take a nice walk in the woods? This is a place where you’re always free to find fun activities in the open air – all seasons of the year.

Tenant-ownership: a trusted Swedish tradition

When you buy your home in Brf Valsjöskogen, you buy your home as a tenant-owner – joining a long line of people who have also chosen this typically Swedish tradition. Sweden is one of only few countries around the world to offer this solution, and has done so since the 19th century. You may also hear it referred to as cooperative ownership, and the key point of this solution is that it’s a secure form of tenure with just the right combination of freedom and responsibility.

Is life as a tenant-owner right for you?

Living as a tenant-owner is ideal if you’re looking for more freedom than a regular rental contract, but with less responsibility than owning the whole home yourself. Here, the private housing cooperative owns the building, and the land it is built on. As a tenant-owner you own a share in the housing cooperative, and have the right to use a particular apartment. This also means that you look after your home on the inside. The housing cooperative is responsible for taking care of the building and any related grounds. As a tenant-owner and member of the private housing cooperative, you can be involved in making decisions about care and maintenance – and this way, you can also influence your housing costs.

5 reasons for choosing a new tenant-owner home
  • More freedom than a regular rental contract.
  • Less responsibility than owning your own home.
  • All heavy maintenance is managed by the housing cooperative.
  • Easier to budget: less unforeseen expenses.
  • Lower cash contribution required = easier to get your bank loan approved.
