I adore the interior, very nice blend of modern and traditional looking themes.

why? why on earth is such housing (which looks like social security apartments from europe) would sell for so much? I mean its located in the middle of nowhere, so it can't be the land price? there are no building standards nor labour standards in iraq to push the prices up, nor is there anything exotic in these buildings (like solar thermal air conditioning for example) to justify this price?

just as a comparison. go to www.ingatlan.hu and see far superior apartments, in central budapest, on a hill overlooking the danube with shopping malls, metro and trams nearby selling for 1/3rd of the price of those apartments in the middle of nowhere! (btw, hungary has a GDP PPP 5x that of Iraq's! so its not like they're poverty stricken). hell go search for apartments in beautiful parts of germany, italy, france, spain all better quality, in far superior locations selling for a fraction of the price!

what gives?

Shaytan calm down a bit! I've been to Europe and trust me its far from being like social security appartments..the interior is well designed and well planned. Compared to the rest of Iraq, it has 24/7 security,water and electricity, thats why prices are high. Iraq real estate market is 5 times more expensive than Canada! My house in Montreal, Canada is way cheaper than my dads house in Karrada..Lands can go up to 600$/ meter square in baghdad only, while in Montreal its 200$/Square meter..

dude, I am calm, just a bit disconcerted about some of the ridiculous things happening in Iraq. had these buildings been in central erbil or baghdad or basra, I could see the, at least partial, justification for their prices. but in the countryside near the turkish border?

btw. except for the furniture in the "show apartment" these apartments are exactly like european social security housing (down to the cramped bedrooms, low ceilings and high density of construction in the middle of nowhere).

apartments like these sell in turkey and morocco for about 40-60k USD. which is the price they should be charging in iraq.

lack of housing bumps the prices up...im sure when the housing crisis lessens (and more units are built), prices should come down and stabilise.
