Renting a home in Sweden:
Based on my experience of having worked
in this market for over six years (first with real estate corporate finance then
as a management consultant with Pricewaterhouse Coopers, then as an IT
entrepreneur in real estate; especially rentals), I have concluded that the
politicians are to blame. I'm so frustrated with them that I've written
story in Swedish about it. Read it here -->

What's an "LP code"?
Answer: The LP code is given confidentially to companies who are members
of Location Partners - Simplifying Relocation for a screened community of
companies. Your company can apply for a free membership here.
If you don't have an LP code ignore it and register as a normal Lazybee member (which
is the default choice). Ask your Human Resource responsible to apply for
membership, to get a bundle of powerful services. TOP
I have already registered as a member of Lazybee before, but forgotten my
password. What should I do?
Answer: Get a new password automatically here.
Question3: I am already a member of Lazybee, have requested a new password
but I don't get one (or it doesn't work) AND THE SITE WON'T LET ME REGISTER
AGAIN CLAIMING I ALREADY EXIST AND I'M REALLY FRUSTRATED ABOUT THIS?!?!?!?
Answer: Register again, this time with a different email. Get a new
mailadress and set it to forward ("vidaresänd") mails to your
"real" mailadress (since Lazybee informs you of responses to your ads
etc you want to make sure this new mail works!). GET A FREE NEW EMAIL THAT
FORWARDS FOR FREE AT yahoo.com (or somewhere else).
Question4: The site is really slow / it lets me log in but kicks me out / I
get strange error messages etc!
Answer: Use http://188.8.131.52/lazybee/
to surf (not www.lazybee.biz etc). Still
doesn't work? - Try again after a while. The site is normally a lot faster (and
free of these high traffic related errors) before the afternoon Swedish time
(GMT +1), since USA sleeps in the Swedish morning, resuling in way less traffic
on the Internet. I.e. try again in 30 minutes or wait until 8.00 am-14.00 (2 pm)
Second time (and
all following times):
Log in: surf to http://www.lazybee.biz
and click on "log in" (top left) OR surf directly to http://www.lazybee.biz/login.asp
. Enter the user id (the email) and password you entered when you registered.
If you've forgotten your password, get a new password automatically here.
own ad(s), just like in a newspaper:
- log in (see above)
- decide what type of ad you want to post:
Buy a home (make an ad that announces that you wish to buy a home like
this), Sell a home (make an ad that announces that you wish to sell a home,
and describe the home you wish to sell to someone), Swap/exchange a home
(make an ad that announces that you wish to swap a home (permanent or during
a period), describes both the home you have and the home you want instead,
to swap with), Rent a home (make an ad that announces that you wish to rent
a home like this) or Rent out/ Let a home (make an ad that announces that
you wish to rent out a home, and describes the home you have for someone to
rent from you).
- click on the type of ad
you want to publish - do this from http://www.lazybee.biz
- visibility - decide who will be
able to see your ad - if you want to be sure that
only a screened group of users (other LP members) can see your ad, select
"Show this ad to LP members only". If you want as many people as
possible (including non-screened private persons (=less quality but more
replies)), select "Show this ad to all members" (recommended).
- be anonymous - don't enter any
phone numbers, e-mail etc, all responses to your ads are gathered in your
Beehive, so that you can choose whom to approach. Also, once per day, we
send you an email informing you of the response to your ad(s). The e-mail
you enter isn't showed to anyone, but we use it to send you emails of
matching ads and announcements of interest. For quality assurance purposes,
the e-mail has to be the one to your work. If it isn't please fly to your
Beehive and edit your profile.
- photos - you may include 1-3 color
photos with your ad. You can do this now, or come
back and do it later by flying to your Beehive, clicking up the ad, editing
it and clicking on Add photos. Photos always increases the interest for your
ad, and gives you more accurate announcements of interest.
- send the ad - click on Send.
You will now see the ad as it appears for others. If you are satisfied,
click on "Bee me up, Scotty!". You can also edit it or even delete
Since you will be working in New York for a year, you have made an ad that
announces that you wish to rent out your home in Stockholm. You chose to
make it visible to all Lazybee members (as we recommend). Mr. Jones (not an
LP member) and Mr. Jordan (an LP member) wants a place to stay in Stockholm.
When they search (look at available ads published by other people, just like
in a newspaper), both Mr. Jones and Mr. Jordan can see your ad and announce
their interest. These annoncements are instantly available in your Beehive,
plus you will, on the same day, get an email informing you of how many
announcements you've received for your ad(s).
- refresh your ad - to get as
many people as possible to view your ad, you can make it appear among the
first in the lists by refreshing it. (We display newly refreshed ads first).
Fly to your Beehive, click on the number of the ad, click on the Edit button,
then on "Bee me up, Scotty!" to send it and thus refreshing it.
- check announcements of interest
often - click on Fly to my Beehive
- check matching ads often - see

- PLEASE DELETE THE AD WHEN IT'S NO LONGER VALID - fly to
your Beehive, open up the ad, click on Delete (remove).
