[dropcap]M[/dropcap]aybe you thought New York City was the world’s most expensive city?

No, it’s not. At least not when it comes to real estate prices, as this CNBC report shows:

Looking to spend $200,000 for a villa in Monaco?

Good luck. For that amount, you’d be lucky to get a one-bath – as in a single four-foot by eight-foot bathroom.

Monaco is the most expensive city in the world when it comes to real estate, according to the Knight Frank’s latest Wealth Report. Knight Frank, the London-based real-estate firm, said that the average price of real-estate in Monaco was between $5,350 and $5,920 per square foot in the fourth quarter of 2012.

The city with the second highest real estate prices is Hong Kong — here is the whole Top Ten-list for those who plan to buy a home:
