A crappy 2 BR condo for 850K USD, no thank you.
#Eran on Feb 01, 2017 :
Try buying coffee in LA at Starbucks - you need to take out a second mortgage. In Melbourne Australia it can cost $US30 or more to park in the city for a day. Sydney is twice as expensive! Tel Aviv is great if you like the nightlife - otherwise, for a cheaper option, maybe Gaza?
#Hagit on Dec 08, 2016 :
A meel In MacDonald it's more than 15 dollar...
#Anon on Dec 08, 2016 :
Price per square meter to buy apartment is way too much.

A 280 square meter house can be constructed for around NIS 1,400,000. (without the land).

This is around NIS 5,200 per square meter.

Mafia country, if you are not in the mafia you are starving...
#poor guy on Oct 15, 2016 :
this place is expensive as $%#@, foreign investors keep pumping the prices up, this is definitely one of the worst real estate bubbles in the world.
#The man on Oct 11, 2016 :
I had a fun see the prices in supermarket... I feeld very poor, you can't buy food there if you are evrich person.
#Losia on Sep 29, 2016 :
Food very expensive, meel in me MacDonald cost 15 dollar!!!!
#Sharon on Sep 29, 2016 :
Unfortunately the economic situation in Tel Aviv is katstrof, the government is kind of mafia and still the people every day, most of the people outside the city is very poor can't eat well, the price for food is unnirmal, if you are not part of the mafia you can't buy a small flat coz cost more then locsery apartment in manheten..
#Jan on Sep 29, 2016 :
This is the last plece you want visit, as tourist the local people still you everywhere, in hotels, restorants, bars, shops, taxis, you never get what you order, they are want take your many and give nothing.
#The Dude on Sep 19, 2016 :
As some one who is familiar with the city this is one of the most expensive cities in the world. The real estate prices are absolutely out of proportion to local purchasing power. If you thought that Melbourne or Vancouver are expensive - try Tel Aviv, where a shitty 2 BR apartment in an average neighbourhood will cost around 0.9 million USD, no parking included of course, (and prices keep sky rocketing every year - mostly because of foreign Jewish investors). Transportation is a disaster, no metro (being built now), so only buses or taxi's. If you commute from the suburbs you're absolutely screwed. The city is not clean,lots of places smell of urine, 70% of the buildings look like they're about to collapse at any given moment. There is however a good night-life, very good food scene (very expensive), lots of vegan & gay friendly places, lot's of job opportunities in tech.
#Yaniv on Sep 05, 2016 :
This Rent prices do not include the municipal taxes that are paid in addition by the renter
#Maya on Jul 08, 2016 :
A cup of coffee is 5 ILS, about $1.5
Not as stated here...
A bottle of coke is ranging from 5-10 ILS depends where you buy it.
#Yevgeny on Apr 09, 2016 :
Tel Aviv is crezy city in the cost of livingin, you see the price in restaurants and couldn't believe, in bars it's more worst glass of vodka cost more than 20 uro, beer cost about 10 uro, unnormal.
#Niki on Apr 02, 2016 :
Tel Aviv is the most expensive city in the world more than London and Paris.. And if it's not enough the municipaliry give you a fee every day coz it impossible to find a parking.. The people there is survive and try to still you everywhere, for everything you pay more than double price..
All this before the wars and the terrorism In the streets..
As you can see every plece it's better then this place.
#Pavel gershevich on May 17, 2014 :
Cup of coffe about 3-5 $
#moshe on Mar 04, 2014 :
What about city taxes that are high, is that calculated as a parameter?
where do you put and calculate other taxes?
What about cost of water, not bottled water, but regular tap water, for drink, dish washing, and baths? was that calculated as a parameter for the cost of living?
#amos on Oct 09, 2013 :
one of the mistakes is the rent which is much higher
approx. 5200 for 1 bedroom in city center and 7500 for 3 bedroom in city center.
In Israel 1 bedroom is called 2 room apartment, which gives a big difference. Commentator meant in 1 bedroom=studio
Prices also climbed in the last years. In the past (2006) you could get a 1 bedroom in the city center in 500-600 USD. Today the average price will be 1,500 USD. (Could get to 2,000 USD for new apartments in good location)
3 bedroom (4 rooms) was 750-900 USD in the past, today, 2,000 USD-3,000 USD
#Inbar on Apr 15, 2013 :
Regular coffee. i.e. a large cup of latte to go, would be around 14 nis.
