A lot to do

The broker cites two main reasons why the property attracted so much interest. One is the size of the plot and the other is the location.

– The proximity to Rortunet, schools, nature and Oslo means a lot to many. This, combined with the price, makes such a property alluring, despite the fact that it is a renovation object, he states, and emphasizes that there is a bit more that needs to be done than just painting the walls and changing the floor.

– This is a thoroughly old home, where the bathroom, kitchen and electrical system must be upgraded by professionals, Hagen clarifies.

He believes that the timing of selling the home before Easter was also favorable, as there are not many similar properties for sale.

Advantages of renovation object

According to the broker, renovation objects are often popular if they have a good location and good potential.

– People like to buy renovation objects that they can refurbish themselves. And if you are also skilled and can do part of the renovation and upgrading work yourself, there can be a lot to gain from buying such a property, he says.
