The prices are very very steep....flaming expensive .. radioactive expensive .... most of my relatives are bank poor, but real estate rich if they manage to find a crazy enough buyer who wants to actually buy their property.... Rent is also totally unjustified ...I pay 1 million per month for a 2 bedroom apartment in Rokn Aldeen in a 48 year old "Tower" !! Anyway...It is what it is .... we are going to deal with it like all of our past and future struggles ...just part of being syrian.

Don’t want a property that I he owner is gone and the new owner is occupying the land illegally or have no legal documentation for it. Want to retire there and do light small farming. Thanks

No, it is not cheapest, but most expensive countries in terms of housing price to income ratio.

It is much more expensive than many cities or town in terms of price.

When we compare in terms of price income ratio, which is exceed 60 years of local citizen income, the city housing price is even more expensive than the New York, London, Tokyo, and even more expensive than Singapore and Hong Kong.
