Investors in Irish residential property may have gained more than elsewhere through 2014 across Europe, but figures from Statistics Sweden point to two of the country’s main urban areas offering near similar returns over the period.

The data suggests that residential property prices gained 13% in the greater Gothenburg area in 2014, while in the country’s capital Stockholm they were up by a similar measure.

Sweden’s third biggest urban area, greater Malmo, saw prices rise by some 7% over the past year.
