How do I find a place to live in Oslo?

Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"When looking for a place to live in Oslo, it is important to consider your budget, what type of accommodation best suits your needs, and the neighbourhoods or areas of Oslo where you would like to stay. It is recommended to research the different neighbourhoods and what they offer to get an idea of where you would like to live before starting the search. Once you have narrowed down your preferred area and know whether you prefer to rent or purchase, you can start looking at different properties that are available on listing sites such as Finn.no, Toroms and Hybel.no. You can also look into estate agents and real estate companies in Oslo. Additionally, joining Facebook groups such as BoligOSLO – Leiligheter og Hus (Rent, Buy and Sell houses in Oslo) can be a great source of information and can provide access to listings. Keep in mind that finding a place to live in Oslo may require a lot of patience, as the demand is high and locations can be competitive," remarked another expat who made the move to Oslo, Norway.

"We live in the center of Oslo because it is close to the train and bus stations for us to get to work- it also has a great balcony. We also wanted two large bedrooms, and a w/d in the flat which can be tricky to find in older flats," explained one expat living in Oslo, Norway.
