<P style="POSITION: static">New dwellings in big cities -&nbsp;Who buy and what kind of housing standards are supplied?</P>

The report focuses on who moves into new homes and whether purchasing a new home in the major cities today is a privilege reserved for the affluent. NIBR Report: 2012:31

The introduction of new building regulations, especially in regard to energy and accessibility in housing, has raised questions concerning their impact on construction costs and whether the new requirements cause construction costs to rise while reducing the supply of new homes. These matters are particularly problematic in the major cities in Norway where we find the highest rates of population growth and of house price inflation.
