    Processkartläggning avförmedlingsuppdraget: med fokus på förbättringsområden2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes the sales process of type code 220 single-family homes, including necessary procedural steps. The focus of the report is to identify key areas needing improvement in order to ascertain potential solutions. The report is intended to act as both a support mechanism and a guide for real estate agents and private individuals in their roles as buyers and sellers. A process-map was developed based on research and guidance, and is described within the report. Problem areas were identified using the process-map during comprehensive interviews, and every step in the process is explained in detail in order to illustrate the process-map’s purpose. Further discussion and analysis has led to suggestions for improvement of the sales process. The results shows that the majority of interviewed real estate agents believe the sales process to some extent can be improved. The majority of the interviewed real estate agents points out the importance of creating and maintain good relations with partners and colleagues in the same economic area. This is considered to be essential for businesses that rely on a third person should proceed with as few obstacles as possible. It is also clear that many of the problems that emerged due to external factors that the real estate agents themselves can´t influence. Factors affecting the world economy, interest rates, situation of the property market, speculations among media, laws and regulations are factors beyond the real estate agent´s control. However, after further discussion it became evident that active real estate agents already considered the process inadequate or excessively time consuming. It is also evident that many of the problem areas were due to external factors not influenced by real estate agents. Furthermore, the new real estate law which was implemented July 1, 2011 contributed to several problem areas already identified being addressed and resolved. This report has led to the identification of a process which would make the work easier.

    Säkrare budgivning med ny fastighetsmäklarlag?2009Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The real estate industry have been well publicized in the media the recent years and last year a new draft law of the new real estate agent law were presented. Today there is now law governing the broker’s obligation to present the bidding list upon completion of bidding. However, the new draft law says: ”The broker should be obligated to document the bidding process and when the agreement is met, give the information to the seller and buyer, it should also aim to prevent the broker to present fake bids and thereby push up the price.” The purpose with this essay is to find out if the new law will result in safer auctions. We also want to find out how the real estate agents’ attitude to the bidding procedure in the new and if their trust will rise in potential buyers. Finally, we also want to find out whether the new law will change the buyers’ view on the bidding process. We have been working with articles, studied the text, inquiries, responses, email contacts, and conducted interviews with real estate agents, buyers and a lawyer. The reception of the new law is positive from almost all quarters. Due to the legislative change the, belief is that the trust will rise. The buyers’ view of the bidding process in the future will change when they feel greater safety in future legislation.

    The importance of staff to the efficiency of the tax agency2016In: Nordic Tax Journal, ISSN 0904-6380, E-ISSN 2246-1809, no 2, p. 113-127Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Tax Agency is responsible for controlling as well as informing and assisting the taxpayers. Even if these tasks are not necessarily contradictory, they can be difficult to perform all at once. In their performance of duties, tax agency employees have to meet the expectations of the management as well as of the taxpayers. The goal fulfilment of the Tax Agency is contingent on the organisation’s ability to provide a stress-free working environment. Stress may cause physical and psychological problems.

    Adolescents’ cognitive capacity reaches adult levels prior to their psychosocial maturity: Evidence for a "maturity gap" in a multinational, cross-sectional sample2019In: Law and human behavior, ISSN 0147-7307, E-ISSN 1573-661X, Vol. 43, no 1, p. 69-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    All countries distinguish between minors and adults for various legal purposes. Recent U.S. Supreme Court cases concerning the legal status of juveniles have consulted psychological science to decide where to draw these boundaries. However, little is known about the robustness of the relevant research, because it has been conducted largely in the U.S. and other Western countries. To the extent that lawmakers look to research to guide their decisions, it is important to know how generalizable the scientific conclusions are. The present study examines 2 psychological phenomena relevant to legal questions about adolescent maturity: cognitive capacity, which undergirds logical thinking, and psychosocial maturity, which comprises individuals' ability to restrain themselves in the face of emotional, exciting, or risky stimuli. Age patterns of these constructs were assessed in 5,227 individuals (50.7% female), ages 10-30 (M = 17.05, SD = 5.91) from 11 countries. Importantly, whereas cognitive capacity reached adult levels around age 16, psychosocial maturity reached adult levels beyond age 18, creating a "maturity gap" between cognitive and psychosocial development. Juveniles may be capable of deliberative decision making by age 16, but even young adults may demonstrate "immature" decision making in arousing situations. We argue it is therefore reasonable to have different age boundaries for different legal purposes: 1 for matters in which cognitive capacity predominates, and a later 1 for matters in which psychosocial maturity plays a substantial role. © 2019 American Psychological Association.

    The role of the European court of human rights in changing gender norms in Turkey: the case of women’s maiden names2019In: Turkish Studies, ISSN 1468-3849, E-ISSN 1743-9663Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The diffusion of international human rights norms through the enforcement of international human rights law by courts has been explored by both scholars of international relations and international law. Turkey, which has been a state party to most international human rights treaties despite being a major violator of human rights, is the case in this paper. It examines norm diffusion in the area of women’s rights through court action in a patriarchal culture protected and represented by a deeply patriarchal state and judiciary. By looking at the legal processes, domestic and international, through which the issue of the right of Turkish women to keep their maiden names after marriage has gone, this paper argues that norm diffusion through court action can be triggered even in difficult cases such as changing gendered norms and describes the conditions and mechanisms that make these changes more likely.

    Studie av olika fastighetsmäklarprogram: och hur väl dessa förbereder studenterna inför fastighetsmäklaryrket2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This is a study about Real Estate University Programmes in Sweden and how the choice of educational institution affects job opportunities. Do potential employees consider where the students have been studying and how long the education has been?

    In Sweden there is a government agency called Fastighetsmäklarnämnden (FMN) (translated: the Estate Agents Board) who has a roll of controlling, educating, informing and register the Estate agents. FMN has some educational-, formal- and practical requirements before someone can be registered as a Real Estate Agent. One of the educational requirements is to obtain at least 120 higher education credits, corresponding to two years at university, at a real estate program which has been approved by FMN.

    In the study, programs with 120- and 180 higher education credits are included. There are a number of educational institutions which offer real estate programs. Delimitation has been done in consideration of the real estate university programmes focusing on real estate and property science. Therefore, the following educational institutions have been chosen to be included; Luleå University of Technology, Malmo University, University of Borås, University of Gävle and University West.

    Furthermore, the study investigated real estate agencies opinions about former students who had applied for jobs and if the companies accepted trainees. Real estate agencies included in the study are; Bjurfors, Fastighetsbyrån, HusmanHagberg, SkandiaMäklarna and SvenskFastighetsförmedling. The selected companies are based in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo.                   

             The result is based on a quantitative survey in two parts, one to former students and one to franchisees/office managers at each real estate agency. A literature study based on web-pages, course catalogues from each University, and articles from trade magazines were performed. The results demonstrate that former students choose course because of information from the University and depending on where the students lived at the time of applying. The companies do not evaluate former students differently based on 120- and 180 higher education credits degrees. However, some companies do experience differences in knowledge from students, which studied 120- compared to 180 higher education credits degrees.

    Exploateringsavtal, LOU och upphandlingstvång: Vad säger lagen och hur resonerar branschen2017Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There is an ongoing discussion within the industry whether public procurement should be applied or not regarding municipality facilities that are regulated in development agreements. The law render for the municipality to either enjoin the developer “to institute” or “to finance”, however it is without clarification regarding the compatibility with the public procurement legislation. The study reaches the conclusion that public facilities that are regulated in the development agreements are subject to public procurement. The four criteria’s that constitutes a contract within the Swedish Act on Public Contracts (LOU) are all fulfilled. The municipals does not see consultant disqualification or regulation of the financial questions, that already is in the development agreement that proceed the procurement, causes any practical problems. It’s established that it could still be a theoretical issue. Applying the law of public procurement may come with complex problems. The municipality or the developer that has intention to build on the development area, have in an agreement through the development agreement that can regulate financial obligations for the developer. This will in theory give the developer incentive to come with an offer in the procurement that is not dependent on the actual costs; the developer should either way pay through the development agreement. The developer whom also is operative within the development agreements area who per say already is the land owner. Investigations, such as for example geotechnical investigations can continuously be done as a preparation for the development to come on the land. The law of public procurement regulates prior involvement of candidates or tenderers, so called consultant disqualification, which might be actualized. The study shows that the municipals that have partaken in the study do not have a unified way of working. Since 2015-01-01 at least 28 % of the 120 responding municipals let the developer execute the development of the municipal facilities in at least one development agreement. Another result that emerged is that in one of the three interviewed municipals there is a “voluntary” enforcement of the Swedish Act on Public Contracts (LOU), in spite of the opinion that the law of procurement should not be used. The use of LOU instead fulfills the purpose of securing the quality of roads and pavements. The developers that has partaken in the study state that there are several advantages with being the developer of the public areas coordinated with expansion of the land. The study’s survey and interviews with municipals show the opposite, that the developer whom has been enjoined to finance public facilities in the development agreement rarely participates as a tender in the procurement.The municipals does not see consultant disqualification or regulation of the financial questions, that already is in the development agreement that proceed the procurement, causes any practical problems. It’s established that it could still be a theoretical issue.It has also come to light that there is a different approach depending on work categories. Legal experts are described as the theorists and think that LOU should be used. The development engineers are on the other hand seen as the practitioners and they want the developer to have the opportunity to build the municipals facilities and then after they are finished is handed over to the municipal.

    Svagt intresse för köpmäklare: en fråga om bristande kännedom eller saknas behovet?2012Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose: The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to determine if a lack of buyers real estate agents in Sweden is due to a lack of knowledge of the existence or the absence of need for the service. A short investigation of how the law corresponds to the work of a buyers real estate agent has been done.

     

    Research question: Is the lack of buyer’s real estate agents in Sweden due to a lack of knowledge of their existence or the absence of need for the service.

     

    Methodology: In this paper, the information is gathered from two different types of survey methods, quantitative surveys and qualitative interviews. The information from these has been compiled and is the result of this paper. The analysis of the work is based on the results which have been processed with the theoretical part as a basis. It is based on the theoretical model which is called the "slutlig analysmodell".

     

    Essay contributions: In Sweden, there are a few agents who act as buyer’s real estate agents which works on behalf of a buyer. After a shorter research it was found that there is not much information about the service or how well the Swedish people are aware of such a service or if they have any need of it. This essay therefore wants to point out the problem with the lack of demand for the service and what it may be due to. After completion of this essay this paper will provide a basis for further research into the service and its demand.

    Results and Conclusion: Swedish housing speculators have poor to no knowledge of the existens of the buyer’s real estate agent service due to minimal marketing. Also the demand of such a service is low due to that the buyers are well protected by the seller’s real estate agent, who by law also must work for the best of the buyers interests.

     

    Suggestions for further research:

    1) Investigate whether there is room or opportunity for the implementation of legislative changes which would support a buyers real estate agent service.

    2) How to increase the Swedish people's awareness of the existence of a buyer’s real estate agent service.

    3) Implement a more nationwide survey on Swedish people's awareness and needs of a buyer’s real estate agent service to see if the results show otherwise.
