I've heard about Sweden having a very bad availability of rental places (waiting lists that can span years). I was wondering how to find an apartment or property for rent in Sweden as a foreigner hoping to move.
I realize it will be difficult (if not impossible) to find a rental BEFORE coming but afterward, what's the process and how do you do it?
As far as specific locations, I'm wondering about Stockholm, Malmö, or other large cities. If it's preferable to live out in the suburbs, please provide information on how to find an apartment there.
