Obviously football is coming home this year. With Vardy and Kane set to bang in the goals as though their lives depend on it, it’s a given.
But while glorious England will sit at the top of the table come 10 July, how does this Sceptred Isle’s capital city compare with its European neighbours’ capital cities when it comes to property prices?
Online estate agent, HouseSimple.com, has done some research and come up with the following table:
|Country||Capital city||Average price of a square metre of property (£)|
|Republic of Ireland||Dublin||2867|
It should come as no surprise to see London is the most expensive, over 10 times the cost per square metre in Turkey’s Ankara.
Alex Gosling, chief executive of HouseSimple, says: “The Euro 2016 of property prices, shows just how unaffordable property is in London compared to other European cities.
“In fact, you’d need a footballer’s salary to afford a house in many parts of the Capital, with the average price of a square metre of property seven times higher than it is in Budapest and more than twice as much as Madrid and Berlin.”
However, with certain people predicting a slowdown in house prices, perhaps things are changing and soon London will slip to where the England football team lie in the current FIFA rankings – 11th.
