Monaco Tops London as World’s Most Expensive Real Estate Market

London has been pushed off its top spot by Monaco as the most expensive place to buy residential property, with the UK capital and surrounding counties suffering some of the biggest price falls in the world.

Monaco, where prime property is being sold for €50,000 ($68,000) per sq m (your average 1,500 square foot apartment would theoretically run you $10 million), is now followed by London, at €28,000 per sq m, then Manhattan, at €16,500 per sq m.

The Wealth Report, compiled by Citi Private Bank and Knight Frank shows that property values fell 17 percent in London and 25 percent in Hong Kong.
