Housing debates, the kind that as you grow older start to fill your conversation with friends over drinks. Should I rent or buy? Should I get a roommate to share the cost? Should I invest in a rental property? or even Should I move in with my parents?
This is the new reality for today’s housing market. If you live in a major metropolitan centre you may have even been priced out of your market. Did you know that if you make an average income in San Francisco that you would need four roommates to get by? How about eight in Hong Kong?
This infographic from the real estate agents at Liberty Village Toronto, calculates the number of roommates needed for major cities across the globe. It also provides some really neat stats around home ownership that you may have not considered.
Spoiler: Hong Kong is probably not the place for you.
