“We chose to advertise in Denmark, which resulted in us getting a number of interested parties, including one who ended up being our buyer,” says Halvard Breivik Klingen at Privatmegleren Nyeboliger Oslo.

The cabin in Kvitfjell, which was purchased for NOK 27 million in 2020, was sold for NOK 33.5 million. The asking price was 35 million Norwegian kroner.

– We announced it in Norway as well, but we wanted to try to reach a new type of customer and it worked, says Klingen.

The cabin, described as a “fantastic cabin of a rare type”, was put up for sale in November last year.
