Broker and lawyer Morten S. Helgerud in Krogsveen praises Drammen municipality towards Bonytt. no.
They’ve really taken hold of. Drammen is no longer perceived as a crossroads, but a beautiful city by the river. And it’s just eleven you’ve managed to build a brand around. In addition, beautiful modern apartment projects have been built that have been successful. Bragernes Strand, Union Brygge and Engene Park are all examples of new living environments that have raised the city up and down, Helgerud explains..
At the same time, he notices that there is an increasing number of visitors who have an address in Oslo. This was not the case before.
– Girls from Drammen who hit boys in Oslo earlier moved rarely back. We see more of this now.
And although the rise in prices has been strong, it is still far from Oslo prices.
– We notice that the apartment market in Oslo is under pressure. This helps Drammen get into the picture. People are experiencing a lot more value, Helgerud continues.
– At the moment he has Drammen’s most expensive apartment for sale, located in Engene Park. A top floor of 122 square meters with a price proposition 5. 490. 000 kroner.
