Shows the median buying price and rent per month (US$/€), for a 1-bedroom apartment in the most expensive region in the capital city.

The square meter price represents the average per square metre (sq. m.) prices in US$/€ of existing residential dwellings located in the capital or most important city of each country. Price to rent ratio is calculated by dividing the average house price by the average yearly rent in the country. Essentially, it provides information about the number of years it would take to recoup our investment in the current market situation.
