Norwegian (Bokmal) term or phrase: lån over pipa
- Har du egenkapital og skal bo i Norge i flere år kan det lønne seg å kjøpe, men du skal ha økonomi til det. Ikke lån over pipa. For nyinnflyttere kan det være lurt å leie i første omgang, for så å se hvilket området du har lyst til å bo i.

Don't borrow too much?
