It’s Official – Hong Kong Is The Most Expensive City In The World To Live In

The most expensive cities to live in around the world in 2019 have been revealed in the 15th Annual Demographia International Housing Affordability Survey.


The study analysed 309 housing markets (and 91 major markets with populations over a million) in eight countries — Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, the UK, and the US.

To produce the ranking, it looked at data from the third quarter of 2018 using the “mean multiple” approach — the median house price divided by the median household income.

The survey shows that the most “severely unaffordable major housing markets” are currently in Australia, New Zealand, and China.
