SSM has studied what young Stockholmers think about their housing. Half of those surveyed would consider living in smaller spaces with lower costs if it meant they could afford to do more in their free time. With the money saved, six out of ten would travel, while only one percent would pay the Swedish public television fee.
A new survey carried out for SSM by Novus Opinion shows that proximity to public transportation is the most important factor for Stockholmers when it comes to choosing housing. A close second is having money left to spend after paying the rent. Surprisingly, a trendy neighborhood with lots of people, entertainment and shopping scored lowest on the list.
