This Monopoly Board With Real London Rent Prices For 2018 Will Make You Sob

share on:

If only London’s property prices were like the ones on the Monopoly board, eh?

A place in Mayfair for £400? Yes please.

Unluckily for us, that wouldn’t even cover a month’s rent in even the cheapest areas of London, or a week in most. Flatsharing platform, Ideal Flatmate, have created an infographic of real life house prices in London in 2018, and compared them to those on the popular board game. They’ve worked out the average value of properties in the Monopoly locations today and, er… um… is somebody chopping onions?! Take a look at the full infographic here.

There’s the “cheap” ones…
