Israel Housing Costs

Recommended Posts

Sitting on a discarded car seat under a makeshift awning close to the walls of Jerusalem's Old City, Nadav, 28, said rents had increased by around 50% in the past few years. "We are earning less and paying more, and we want a solution that allows us to live in a reasonable place at an affordable price," he said.

A student at Hebrew University with a part-time job, Nadav said one of the reasons for Jerusalem's high prices was 12,000 "ghost apartments" owned by wealthy Jews who visit for "a month or a month and half, tops, each year. Every apartment they buy pushes up prices for everyone."
