The Top 10 Most Expensive Cities In America

Image New Yorkers may complain about paying $1,500 a month for a shoebox-sized apartment, but as it turns out, they don't have it so bad. New York is nowhere near the top of the list of least-affordable cities for moderate-income households, defined as those making 50 to 100 percent of that area's median income, according to a new study by the Center for Housing Policy and the Center for Neighborhood Technology. The groups compiled the list by calculating the share of income a middle-class household spends on transportation and housing. The study shows that top three most expensive cities for the middle class are Miami, FL; Riverside, CA and Tampa, FL, where the average middle-class household is spending more than 65 percent of their income on housing and transportation.



Image Son 10 yılda Türkiye’de büyük patlama yaşayan konut sektörü, online dünyada da yeni girişimlerle atılımını sürdürüyor. Amerika’da yaşayan bir Türk girişimci tarafından dizayn edilen www.eviniz.com sitesi, Türkiye’de emlak almak isteyenlerin evleri harita üzerinde kolayca bulmalarını sağlıyor. Sitenin en önemli özelliği harita üzerinde arama imkanı vermesi; yani haritayi sağa sola mouse ile kaydırarak arama yapılabiliyor. Şimdiye kadar süregelen sistem; il seç, ilçe seç türünde combo boxlardı. Mesela Antalya'da denize yakın bir villa arıyorsanız mouse ile Antalya etrafında dolaşabilir, evleri görebilirsiniz. İlla bir ilçe seçmeye gerek yok. Evin içini, mutfağını, dolaplarını görmeden denize ne kadar yakın, yola ne kadar yakın vs. görülebiliyor.
