Which are the cheapest cities in which to buy a home?

The increase in prices is due to the reduction in supply and the increase in demand, but above all to the current inflation. However, among the most sought-after and in-demand cities that offer a high quality of life are those that offer cheaper prices compared to the big capitals. In 2023, an average purchase price of €176,240 was recorded for an 80 m² property, with an average price of €2,203 per square metre.
