Apartment near the center

Very interesting calculations from a recent study by UBS: how many years a highly skilled worker needs to work to earn an apartment of 60 square meters near the city center

Hong Kong topped the ranking this year: it will take 20 years for a skilled worker living in this city to save all their income to buy 60 «squares» near the city center. A year ago, it took only 15 years. In second place is Paris (17 years old) and London (14 years old) closes the top three. And both of these cities have also seen tangible growth over the past year.

Moscow shared the 6-7th place in this rating with Tel Aviv: an employee with high qualifications will have to put off 10 years in order to save up for an apartment of 60 «squares» near the center of Moscow (or Tel Aviv)

And to compare the level of «people live»: in Miami it will take 4 years, in Los Angeles 5 years
