If you are planning to move to Luleå, it is important to start looking for accommodation as early as possible.
Housing in Luleå usually falls into one of three contract categories: rental, owner-occupier and private ownership. Rented flats are popular in Luleå, and consequently often difficult to find. Many large property owners, including the Municipality's housing company, use a queue system with waiting periods of varying length to allocate available housing.
Many flats in Luleå belong to cooperative housing societies that operate under a system of tenant-ownership. While this requires a larger initial investment, it also means no queuing and no waiting period.
If you're planning on a long stay in Luleå, buying a house or flat may be an option. Luleå has a number of estate agents who will be happy to help you find permanent accommodation.
