That's for stopping little kids from falling off the building. Pretty standard here. The previous owner probably had little kids living with him. As you can see in the other, more expensive apartment, there is nothing like that, probably because the owner didn't have little kids living with him.

I think this Brisbane property is more comparable to the other listings. Not sure about the pricing though. A half size unit(187sqm/2,012sqft) 5 stories below(82.05) seems to be asking AUD 2.3m($1.7m, $845/sqft), and a quarter size unit(101sqm/1,087sqft) 2 stories below(85.03) is asking AUD 1.35m($1.0m, $915/sqft). Maybe around AUD 4.0-4.5m assuming zero premium for the sub-penthouse unit, or up to AUD 7-8m assuming 70-100% premium for the sub-penthouse unit

I wonder about other types of assets besides RE.

How many pork bellies, bushels of corn or silver can I buy?

In other words, $3 million is nothing in the world's most expensive cities.

You are the low man or woman on the totem pole.

These properties are still above average in any of those cities. They are small because they're mostly upscale properties, located close to the heart of these cities. Monaco is probably the only city where $3m puts you real close to the rock bottom.
