The top three also included South Africa and the United States.

Based on a new global housing affordability study conducted by the British building materials supplier Roofing Megastore, Saudi Arabia is the most affordable country in the world to buy a home in 2021. The average annual salary in the state is $20,354, and the cost of housing with an area of 100 square meters is only $90,774.

To compile the rating, the Roofing Megastore research group calculated the average cost per square meter of real estate in 109 countries around the world. To get a more accurate picture of accessibility, the average salary of local residents after taxes was taken into account.

According to the rating, Nepal is the most inaccessible country for buying real estate. The average annual salary is only $2,608, and the average property value is almost $2.8 million. That is, local residents will have to save more than a thousand years to buy a home.

Also, the most inaccessible countries were Ethiopia, Thailand, Ghana, Indonesia and Vietnam. In all these states, local residents with an average salary should save for their own housing for 100-200 years. Even in Hong Kong, one of the most "hot" housing markets in the world, the situation is better – you will have to save for your own house for only 73 years.
