In Norway, three out of four households own their housing. As a foreign citizen, both housing (detached house, townhouse, owner section apartment/condominium, housing cooperative) and rules related to buying a home and owning their own home can be difficult to understand. The rules and requirements are also different from detached houses and townhouses to owner section apartment/condominiums and housing cooperatives.
🏡 Market (renting or buying?)
* What to investigate when purchasing a house?
🏡 Budget and loans: How to apply for a mortgage/loan?
🏡 Regulations and procedures in the rental marked vs buyers marked
🏡 Viewing, bidding, buying and contracts
* Price/value increase and earn-out period with "Deleie" powered by Coo/Co-ownership contract
Bate is one of Norway's largest house builders and housing managers. Today, Bate manages 30.000 homes and assists both boards and residents with daily tasks and challenges. Over 100 employees in Bate help daily with caretaker-gardening services, accounting, consulting, legal assistance, maintenance and project management, damage prevention and residential construction.
Coo is a new concept, started two years ago. Coo buy houses and are co-owners, until you have equity enough on your own. They have already bought homes together with just under 100 families and are now buying more homes every week, as well as having even more on viewings every day scattered throughout the country.
Our speakers will explain both rules related to home purchases, and the things you as a home buyer must be wary of in relation to maintenance and extraordinary expenses related to housing. We will also explain the difference between housing cooperatives and co-ownership.
