Housing market

The housing market in the Kristiansand region is characterized by predictability and moderate price growth. There is a good balance between supply and demand in the market. One important reason is that the construction of new homes has kept pace with population growth in the region for several years. These factors all contribute to a stable housing market.

Only in Kristiansand do you have a lot of choice when it comes to buying a home. You get homes adjacent to the forest or the sea with short distances to the city center at affordable prices. The Kristiansand region is also seeing increasing centralization, as elsewhere in the country and Europe. However, detached houses are still popular, and in Agder about 75% of the inhabitants live in detached houses. The price level in general in the Kristiansand region is somewhat lower than in urban regions such as Stavanger, Bergen and Trondheim.

The city's realtors believe that price growth will remain moderate and stability will be good in the coming period.
