Jyväskylä housing market survey

During 2023, Jyväskylä will draw up its Housing Vision 2035. To support its preparation and as background material, there was need for a housing market survey which maps the current situation in respect of the housing market in Jyväskylä. Questions to be clarified here included what kind of housing is currently in demand, are there bottlenecks in the housing market, what are the ‘easy’ and what are the ‘difficult’ properties, what are the current identifiable trends in the housing market, what are the latest housing concepts and in what direction are they developing? And finally, what are the prospects for the next 10 years? The ultimate purpose of the survey was to investigate the land supply situation in order to understand where the city should invest and if, for example, there is a need for stronger profiling. The report also included views from reference cities and from the national level. Views were collected from local actors such as real estate agents, construction companies and external commentators.
