Hey, boys it became very interesting for me. As I'm writing I live in Baku- capital of Azerbaijan. The country is in Caucasus and was inside former Soviet Union as other 14 republics, now it is independent. The territory is not very big, say enough, and the population is 8 mln. As u know we lived in socialist system, and after 1991 so to say capitalism began here, much like say as in USA 100 years ago. Azerbaijan is famous with oil. Of course, it doesn't mean u'll find it in the land u buy in Baku, only in the sea. Anyhow, what is the question. As u understand the economical level of the population here is very low, say per capita 100-200$ per month. It is much lower than in Europe and many other countries not talking about USA. Of course, we have some % having a lot of money. But it was strange for me to get the prices for territories or lands inside Baku which u can buy and say build yr own 2 or 3 floor house there. Say 1000 sq. meters ( appr. 33 meter x 33 meters) not in the center cost 600,000 $, the cheapest places far from the centre cost minimum 300,000$. These prices don't correspond to the level of the population here, and even to the level of it's more or less rich part. So contribute, please with yr knowledge in this question, how much say in the city u live 1000 sq. meters of the land cost ? I mean empty land without any houses and etc.. Also it is interesting for me how much say 2 bed appartments cost in high buildings in the centre of yr city, and in say 3-4 miles from center ? Yr partcipation is very appreciated.
