House in Greenland

I want us to buy a house in Greenland. Normally, you would think that they are quite cheap because except few tourists, no one else wants to actually live there (there are less than 58,000 inhabitants in the whole Greenland). I emailed the Danish tourist’s office and they gave me some URLs of house agents in Greenland. Apparently, a 2-bedroom house or apartment in Nuuk, the 15,000 inhabitant capital of Greenland, costs over $400,000 (~2,2 million danish krones). That’s a lot of money.

Then look for a piece of land, not a flat. Should be cheaper and a much better investment for that time.

That’s true. But thing is, to convince JBQ we need to also live there, at least for vacations. He likes skiing.

Even if it isn’t, Greenland will become greener. And that’s already a good investment.

Just come to Athens to see more insane prices..

The tourism activity is not the only factor.
You have to compare index prices, cost of living etc.

In comparison Turkey is highly touristic, but I can find (as I live in Istanbul too) a villa house for USD 300,000.00
