Who owns the city, and why is it important to know? The city constantly makes decisions that affect municipal residents regarding municipal services, land use, and financing. The cost is often linked directly to the municipal residents, but the benefits of some decisions directly affect the property owners and only indirectly affect the municipal residents. On the other hand, the property owners can be residents in the city or the country, but they can also be foreign property owners. Therefore, the distribution of costs will differ from the distribution of benefits. The study aims to investigate and analyse real estate owners in some focus areas in Stockholm municipality in terms of nationality, patterns of real estate usage, area of properties, and the nature of ownership. We determined the concentration of real estate owners by nationality in the different focus areas by Using Getis-Ord statistics Gi* measuring the concentration of Swedish and non-Swedish real estate owners.
