I was recently researching the global markets and came across an analysis of property prices and how they compare. I’d like to share that information with you.
I’m sure you won’t be surprised that the most expensive real estate is in Monaco at $5,400 per square foot. But how do the other major cities compare? Here’s what I found out:

price per square foot:
LONDON $4,500
HONG KONG $4,400
GENEVA $3,000
PARIS $2,500
MOSCOW $2,200
NEW YORK NY $2,200
SYDNEY $2,100
ROME $1,700

An average 2 bedroom condo has 1,000 square feet, so when you do the math, you can see the reality of how expensive real estate is in these principal cities.
How does Vancouver compare, you may ask? Coal Harbour, our most expensive real estate downtown, recently reached a whopping $1,700 price per square foot mark, which is highest condo price you can find in this city.
However, when you compare it to other principal cities in the world, it’s actually on the lower scale. Plus, you live in a beautiful city with fresh air and clean, drinkable water from the tap! Things that we sometimes take for granted...
