by Forsberg, Linda; Götesdotter, Maria

Abstract (Summary)
Aim: The background for our investigation is the increasing growth rate for transformations and our aim with the essay is to reach an understanding for the development behind the transformations that takes place from municipal housing corporations. We want to investigate what motives that lies behind transformation decisions, valuation in transformation and the municipal housing corporation’s future.Method: We have used a qualitative research method with interviews as our primary data and literature studies as our secondary data. Our gathered information were compiled and later analyzed.Result & Conclusions: Transformations in municipal housing corporations often come through directives from the municipality. The motives are ideological, financial or from housing policy. Transformation is a good way to improve housing areas and free capital if there is a good strategy and plan. Transformation can improve the housing market in many areas in Sweden but we can see a tendency of unbalance in Stockholm.Suggestions for future research: A follow up on Municipal housing corporation’s future, an introduction of market rent, more supervision in the transformation process, municipally perspective, valuation methods, comparison with private companies and against other countries are possible areas for further investigation.Contribution of the thesis: We want to give municipality suggestions to work in a better way with clear plans and strategy for miscellaneous housing markets before they come to a decision on big sales. We think that municipal housing corporations can build both right of tenancy and tenant-ownership for a long term new profitable production and a mixed form of ownership.
