Miami real estate demand a ‘local phenomenon’: Jason Haber

Compass Real Estate agent Jason Haber explains why the red-hot Miami market is not representative of housing across the nation on ‘The Claman Countdown.’

New York City and Singapore were ranked the most expensive cities to live in the world, according to a new report. 

The Worldwide Cost of Living survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) compares more than 400 prices across 200 products and services and over 172 cities.

This is the first time New York has made the list, with both cities knocking Tel Aviv out of the top spot due to rising inflation and stronger currencies.

On the West Coast, Los Angeles rose from the ninth slot to the fourth and San Francisco is ranked the eighth most expensive.

U.S. cities placed higher this year due to the strong dollar, including San Diego and Boston.

Comparatively, Damascus and Tripoli remain the cheapest of the cities.
