Dubai rents officially highest in the world

Eugh. This is something we probably could of guessed, but didn't want to officially know.

Dubai is the most expensive place in the world to rent somewhere to live according to the Knight Frank Global Rental Index.

Knight Frank, the real estate consultants, have said “Dubai holds the top spot this quarter, having recorded a 14.1% increase in prime rents in the year to June.

“The emirate leapfrogged Nairobi which had enjoyed four consecutive quarters at the top”.
