A Russian construction company is offering apartments in this modern high-rise in a far-off Moscow suburb.

One bedroom apartment will cost you half a million euro.

Meanwhile in West London, the tiny black "house in the middle" - said to be the thinnest in Britain sells for 552,000 euros.

That is totally crazy IMO.

When is that insane property bubble gonna finally burst?

If you could choose - London or Moscow?

You can buy this house in Detroit for only $1,800 but it's probably in a crime infested neighborhood.

The world has gone totally crazy.

Cheap but not many want to live in Detroit - unemployment + crime.

rent cheap, don't buy all the extra crap people feel their homes with, and save all the money for touring the world.

No one in their right mind would live in Russia.

And, Meatpie. It's not clever being selective when choosing a London hovel to compare. There are, literally 1000s of very nice properties in London for far less than 500,000 and, at least, people can be happy and safe knowing that London and the UK is NOT run by gangsters and despots. Unlike Russia.

try this property, for example:

http://www.foxtons.co.uk/search?bedrooms_from=1&bedrooms_to=2&price_from=300000&price_to=450000&prop_type=flats&property_id=760440&search_form=keyword&search_type=SS&submit_type=search

Or this one for 309,000

http://www.foxtons.co.uk/search?bedrooms_from=1&bedrooms_to=2&price_from=300000&price_to=450000&prop_type=flats&property_id=773044&search_form=keyword&search_type=SS&submit_type=search

How about this one?

What you should be considering is quality of life and not just cost of property.

I can't believe the prices you brits have to pay for housing. Its only one freaking bedroom! :shock: That better be an upscale neighborhood for that price with a good view! :damn wtf:
