Mortgage Comparison: Somalia: Mogadishu vs Kazakhstan: Astana!

Here we go again with today's daily mortgage comparison! Giving you an idea of mortgage comparisons from all around the world ;D

Now here we have Somalia, the city of Mogadishu!,
Mogadishu is the largest city in Somalia and the nation's capital. Located in the coastal Benadir region on the Indian Ocean, the city has served as an important port for centuries. Ruled in its medieval golden age by the Somali-Arab Muzaffar dynasty, and subsequently an assortment of other local Sultanates and polities, Mogadishu became the capital of Italian Somaliland during the colonial period.

Average House Price: $15,000
Average Mortgage:  $19,270



VS 


And here we have Kazakhstan, the city of Astana!
Astana is the capital and second largest city (after Almaty) of Kazakhstan, with an officially estimated population of 708,794 as of 1 August 2010. It is located in the north-central portion of Kazakhstan, within Akmola Province, though administrated separately from the province as a federal city area.

Average House Price: $34,700
Average Mortgage:  $38,770


So theres the facts guys, Somalia is alot cheaper but the standard of living is poor, where would you rather live? ;D
