RENT an apartment or a house in the city

Find housing from Home

When you have found a job in Denmark it is a good idea to find a place to live before you move to here. Below you will find a couple of suggestions as to what to do.

Ask your employer about the housing options. Perhaps the company knows of vacant housing close to the workplace, or perhaps it can put you in contact with others who do.

Search on the free housing portal Akutbolig.dk or Boligportal. Search for rented accommodation in our biggest towns: 6880 Tarm, 6900 Skjern, 6920 Videbæk, 6950 Ringkøbing or 6960 Hvide Sande. The postal codes also cover villages nearby. Contact housing associations or private landlords regarding the opportunities of renting a flat or a house in the area in which you want to settle. See contact information arranged  according to the biggest towns under HOUSING FOR RENT or contact the NEWCOMERS’ GUIDE of the area of the municipality in which you want to settle.

Use THE GROUP on Facebook with "Hus/bolig til leje/salg i Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune". Here you can for example search for a house or a place for rent.

Contact the local CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS-/PARISH ASSOCIATIONS, who know of local landlords. Or via the MAP you may be able to find information about vacant houses on the website of the village to which you would like to move.

You are also welcome to search for a home by making a Facebook-post on flytmodvest.dk

Charlotte and Ian

 
Danish/English couple:

Wish of living the good life

”Above all, we just wanted to be together and live the good life. We love being together” says the Danish/English couple Charlotte and Ian Coles who have settled down in an idyllic old farm house at Kloster, halfway between the Ringkøbing Fjord and the Stadil Fjord and close to the town of Ringkøbing.

It is not surprising that the couple had a wish of the good life in peaceful surroundings with lots of nature. Ian was a Major in the British Army, which meant the couple had moved around military bases in England and Germany for years. Ian had also been deployed close to the world’s war zones, leaving Charlotte alone and suffering months of deprivation during their first year in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

They bought the old farmhouse overlooking the Stadil Fjord in 2013, and Charlotte moved in full-time, while Ian could only come home as work allowed. But now the good life has really started as Ian retired this summer.

Ian is 48 years old and he has just landed a job with Vestas - the wind turbine manufacturer – as a Project Training Leader.

Johanna and Malte

 
German family:

Good working conditions leaving room for a family life close to the North Sea

The North Sea. Proper wages – on time – and working conditions leaving room for a good family life with children. Those are the really big advantages pointed out by the German couple Malte and Johanna Mayrberger when moving from the city of Berlin to the seaport of Hvide Sande. Well yes – into the bargain is also the possibility of buying your own house and the fact that people are friendly and polite.

”We would never have been able to buy a house in Germany. You need to provide a down payment of half the price to obtain a loan for the remaining, and yet it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to qualify for a mortgage,” Malte explains, and Johanna adds:

”At any rate we would not have been able to afford having a child, a car, going on holidays, which we do every year, and have time for leisure activities.”

Malte and Johanna moved to Hvide Sande on the 1st November nine years ago and have settled in fine.
