Should I buy or rent a home in Oslo?
If you have not spent a lot of time in Oslo, you should rent before even thinking about buying. We asked expats there about the buy vs. rent decision...
"Buying a home in Oslo can be a great investment, as the city is known for its strong economy and high quality of life. However, it is important to consider the cost of living in Oslo, which is one of the highest in Europe. Renting a home in Oslo can be a more affordable option, and it can also provide more flexibility if you are not sure how long you will be living in the city. Ultimately, the decision to buy or rent a home in Oslo should be based on your individual needs and financial situation," said another expat in Oslo, Norway.
