Living well does cost you. If you want a 2,000 square foot home in Monte Carlo in the right part of town, expect it to cost you nearly 9 million dollars. That is what it takes to live in the most expensive city on the Earth.
But the world is racing past the United States after the housing slowdown when it comes to luxury living.
New York slipped from the 2nd position to 6th in the World’s Most Expensive Cities to live for 2009. It was the only United States city to make the list.
The prices were determined by looking at the average prices in high end neighborhoods in these cities so do not think that the costs are indicative of the whole metropolises. I am sure that most of Moscow is not going to cost nearly $2,000 per square foot to buy a home. However, if you want to buy in the fancy parts of the city, expect to pay these prices.
So I present you the;
