What is life like in Asker?
Asker is perceived by many as quite idyllic, due to the fact that there is ease of access to Oslo international and Oslo city via rail. In addition to this Asker is very close to routes of escape to nature, which appeals to the masses. That being said, one should be aware of the cost of living in this area in comparison to other areas of Norway, with a special emphasis on property costs. For example an 80m2 apartment in this area costs approximately 500000euros, depending on location and condition. One can rent or buy slightly outside Asker and the prices can reduce by as much as 30%.
