The Best and Worst European Capitals to be a First-Time Buyer

The Best and Worst European Capitals to be a First-Time Buyer

In a study by Together Money, the best European capital city to be a first time buyer is Brussels.

Madrid comes in at number 13, out of a list of the 34 European capitals.

According to the study, the price per square metre of a a apartment in Madrid city centre is €4,617.51. The average monthly net salary is €1,491.96 so that means that people in Madrid are spending a whopping 68.63% of their salary on mortgage repayments. In Brussels, that percentage drops to 43.99%.

Which capital comes out the worst? Moscow!

In Moscow, the price per square metre is €4,291.94 while the average monthly salary after tax is just €822.58, which means that I don´t understand how people can afford to buy an apartment in Moscow.

Which capital has the biggest monthly net salary? Surprise, surprise, it´s Bern in Switzerland with €4,005.36. Number 2 is Luxembourg City with €3432.34 and Oslo is in 3rd position, €3,159.90.

Bern might have a huge average monthly net salary but the price per square metre for a city centre apartment comes in at €10,479.53 so people in Bern spend 62.57% of their monthly salary on a mortgage. In other words, they can afford the high prices.
