We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Denmark is like. They answered...

"My boyfriend who i stay with lives in a share-housing building. Seems it is very rare these days in Denmark/Copenhagen. I guess in the states it would be cooperative living as best translated. People in the building own the building and put in for the up keep of the building. They have a committee that meets about building issues and also meetings where all people of the building come. Here they pay for their shard in the building and from that have a right to live in the building. But they have the flexiblity to change their own living space as if they owned their apartment solely but at a lesser cost as if renting. I dont know why its rare but i would guess it has something to do with the ability to cooperate with others. I think for a lot of people it would just be easier to own it alone and deal with all the issues solely or rent and let someone else deal with the issues," remarked another expat who made the move to Copenhagen, Denmark.

"Expat homes and apartments in Denmark tend to be modern and well-equipped, with plenty of natural light and a comfortable, cozy atmosphere. Many expat homes feature open-plan living areas, with large windows and balconies that offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Expat apartments often come with modern amenities such as high-speed internet, cable TV, and air conditioning. Many expat homes and apartments also come with access to shared facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, and saunas," explained one expat living in Denmark.
