I know and I just shake my head, you aren't making any money at those rates by the time inflation is factored in


I'll stick to my 20+% mortgages thanks

Great world chart. Look for Victoria at the $1200 level, alongside Pittsburgh and Bristol.




More expensive than Berlin, cheaper than Stockholm.


But of course this depends on how they classify the boundaries of the city.

^ Thanks for that Rob. That ignited a 2 hour discussion with our mid 20's spawn  about supply and demand....mixed with location and weather..... served with a dash of dinero. 


In other words what makes the world go 'round.

^^that's a great chart, but as there are cities listed around the world I will assume its in US dollars?  I'm not sure you can find a place for $1200 CAD right now

It's USD which works out to just over $1500 which is the cost of a nice two bedroom (downtown would be more, basement suite, less).

Maybe I should learn some Polish to set up an affordable retirement somewhere along the Baltic Sea... figures massive emigration plus zero natural growth makes things cheap, haha
