Living the Israeli Dream without busting the budget

Where would most people in Israel live if they had their druthers? Our dream home remains, as it has long been, a private house with a garden in a small community or country environment.



About 75% of 305 respondents in a Panels survey of a representative national sample on behalf of TheMarker said they would live in a single-family home if budget wasn't a factor - and 56% of those said they preferred a rural village or small town. The dream, apparently, isn't far out of reach: Over 90,000 detached homes have been built in recent years. The problem is they're not always geographically within reach.

Penthouses - a luxurious accommodation usually dominated by the upper crust - were preferred by just 12.5% of respondents. Third place went to average, ordinary apartments, apparently chosen by those whose dreams aren't characterized by the type of housing they occupy. Coming in fourth with just 4.3% were luxury apartments in exclusive high-rises, despite all the eye-popping ad campaigns.
