High temperature in the housing market in Norway

Lately, I’ve received many new inquiries for help with home purchases. Among them many people from abroad or English speakers living in Norway.

The main reason is that the housing market has come back to life and prices are rising again. With that, more people will start the home buying process. At the same time, there’s more competition for homes and quicker turnovers. In such cases, it can be nice to have some professional help and support from someone on the buyer’s side.

Here are some key figures about the housing market from April and so far this year:

  • There have been a lot of homes listed, more than at the same time in previous years except for 2021.
  • Even more homes have been sold than those listed, and the inventory of unsold homes has decreased significantly.
  • Price growth so far this year has been at 7.2%. But since there was a fall in housing prices in the fall of 2023, the 12-month growth is at 2.5%.
  • Turnover time has also decreased.
  • It is expected that many more homes will be listed leading up to the summer. Many buyers are in the market, so we can conclude that we are now in a seller’s market, albeit fairly balanced.

I’m looking forward to an active spring and early summer where I’ll have the pleasure of helping my clients find their dream homes. There’s room for more, and I look forward to hearing from you if you need a little guidance on the path to a successful home purchase.

Let us start with a non-binding digital meeting to discuss your possibilities on the Norwegian Housing Market and how I can help you with the process !
