Overall activities are on level with the second quarter of 2018 and the third quarter one year ago.

“Sales in Norway and Sweden remain on level with the preceding quarters. The Oslo area still has the highest level of activity, while there is considerable variation in our other markets. We are experiencing high interest in our projects, but residential buyers are now spending more time selecting their homes than before because of the high number of new and used residential units on the market,” said Jørgen Wiese Porsmyr, EVP Project Development.
