What is the average cost of housing in Denmark?

If you are thinking about moving to Denmark, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing:

"Our housing costs were double what we had thought we could live with in Denmark. We had minimal time to agree to move there and with minimal research we thought we could manage living outside of Copenhagen on a lower rental amount. That was our first mistake. The time it takes to get into Copenhagen either by car or train takes its toll and increases costs. We paid about $8000 a month in rent for a three bedroom townhouse," said another expat in Copenhagen.

"Much higher. The low end of rented apartments is around 1000 USD per month and you do not get much for your money. Most rented apartments, if you can find them, go for between 1500-2000 USD per month," added another person living in Copenhagen.
