What advice to expats in Tromso have about housing?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Tromso about the social scene there, they described it saying...

"Expats in Tromso, advise newcomers to start their housing search early, as the rental market can be competitive. They recommend using online platforms like Finn.no and Hybel.no to find available properties and to join local Facebook groups dedicated to housing in Tromso. It is essential to have a clear budget in mind, as the cost of living in Norway can be high, and housing prices may be more expensive than in your home country. When looking for housing, consider factors such as proximity to public transportation, grocery stores, and your workplace or university. Many expats suggest living in areas like Stakkevollan, Langnes, and Prestvannet, which offer a mix of residential and commercial spaces and are well-connected to the city center. It is essential to familiarize yourself with the rental process in Norway, which may include signing a lease, paying a security deposit, and obtaining home insurance. Be prepared to provide references from previous landlords and proof of income or employment. Keep in mind that some landlords may prefer to rent to locals, so having a Norwegian friend or colleague vouch for you can be helpful. Lastly, expats recommend being patient and persistent in your housing search. It may take some time to find the perfect place, but with thorough research and networking, you can find a comfortable home in Tromso," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Tromso, Norway.
