The combined market cap of the Swedish listed real estate sector increased in 2018, for the eighth consecutive year. At the same time, the OMXSPI ended the year down 8 per cent, following a dismal fourth quarter.

During 2018, the Nasdaq Stockholm real estate index rose by nearly 10 per cent. The big difference between the property sector and other sectors can partly be explained by the property companies not losing as much ground since the global market slump started in early October.

From October 3rd, the OMXSPI fell by 15 per cent while the property industry only lost 6 per cent of its value. It was the fifth year in a row that the property sector outperformed the market and in three of the five years, the property sector has outperformed the market as a whole by 17 per cent or more.

FSBX (Fastighetsnytt´s urban development sector index) rose by 5 per cent in 2018, five percentage points less than the real estate index. The main reason is construction giants Skanska and NCC shedding over 10 per cent of their value after struggling with profitability.

When dividends are included, the Nasdaq real estate total return rose by 11 per cent in 2018. FSBX rose by 9 per cent and the market as a whole fell 4 per cent.
