     Real estate in Monaco: "safe haven" for investors
     The cost of housing in Monaco has recently risen to the global maximum.
     Property prices in the center of the world's wealth - Monaco - reach record levels. The average cost of 1 sq.m. here is 91 thousand euro. The thing is that the offer of real estate in the Principality is very limited, and demand is growing.
     Primarily due to the fact that the territory of Monaco is not very large, and is only 6% of the area of Manhattan, and 3% of the area of Hong Kong. At the same time, the principality is in sixth place in the world in the number of real estate owned by the most wealthy citizens.
     Monaco is one of the largest urban agglomerations. This state can also be called a major center of recreation and entertainment. This fact reduces the possibility of risks to a minimum and creates the preconditions for growth in the real estate market. While many real estate markets in the cities of the world value reached "saturation price" and show a fairly slow growth, Monaco has a good chance to continue "growing season".
     Prices of ultra-premium properties in the world:
     Monaco, 90 900 € / sq.m.
     Hong Kong, 85 500 € / sq.m.
     Tokyo, 51 300 € / sq.m.
     London, 51 000 € / sq.m.
     Paris, 41 600 € / sq.m.
     Moscow, 36 200 € / sq.m.
     New York, 36 000 € / sq.m.
     Shanghai, 18,400 € / sq.m.
     Singapore, 14 600 € / sq.m.
     Dubai, 11 600 € / sq.m.
     Experts attribute this to the fact that the resort real estate markets around the world are actively restored after six years of decline and stagnation. Resort property again began to rise in price. Monaco is already catching up with the main leaders of the cities of world importance.
     The cost of housing in Monaco has recently risen to the global maximum. The average cost of premium real estate in the Principality of 91 thousand. Euro per 1 sq m, which exceeds even Hong Kong.
     The yield of the real estate Monaco is quite low - from 1% to 2%. However, most buyers purchase a property here is not to generate income. Most of the shopping is done in order to move to the principality for permanent residence or "base" for doing business.
