After a difficult period during the economic crisis of 2008, the housing market all over the world has been recovering nicely. However, not all areas are improving at the same rate, and if you want to invest internationally, it is worth comparing a few different regions of the world.

Best performing countries in the property market

Hong Kong property prices are estimated to have risen faster than any other country in the world. In the year between March 2014 and March 2015, the prices have risen by more than 19%. One of the reasons for the rise here is that there is a shortage of property. The second biggest climber in the global property market is Turkey, where prices have risen by 18.6%. The figures were published in the Knight Frank Global House Prices Index, and the countries that complete the top five are Ireland, Luxembourg and Estonia.

Measures taken in Hong Kong include asking prospective buyers to have larger deposits when they purchase, similar to the stance taken by UK banks when considering mortgage applications. In Hong Kong, buyers are expected to have 40% of the purchase price to put down. Also, it is not the luxury properties that are seeing this massive rise in cost in Hong Kong, but the smaller apartments.

Worst performing countries in the property market

Countries such as China, Japan and France all fared badly in the property market, recording losses for the year from March 2014 to March 2015. Countries such as Greece and the Ukraine all marked substantial drops in property prices, with the Ukraine at the bottom of the list with a drop of 15.5%. In comparison, the UK was ranked at 19thon the list with a small growth of 5.9%. Some areas of the UK have seen huge growth, while others have seen prices fall dramatically.

What about the Middle East?

Some of the best emerging markets for those who want to invest in property are in the Middle East.  In Dubai, for example, the cost of the average apartment rose by more than 14%, while villa costs rose by nearly 9%. One of the reasons why the Middle East is becoming more popular for property investment is the rapid move towards an economy that is not solely reliant on oil and gas. With more tourists arriving each week, people are beginning to see the region as a good place to live as well.

When it comes to investing in property, the data shows that you should be looking at the world as a whole, because there are opportunities in all regions. The rapid development of the Middle East means that investing in property there is something that you can now consider as a long-term option, as there are fewer restrictions on foreign buyers.

How to set up a holiday let abroad

Owning a property abroad provides a number of opportunities which can have great financial benefits. You may simply be using your second abode as a holiday home for you and your family to visit when the British weather turns from bad to worse, but whilst the property sits empty, it is technically losing money, and you are missing out on a great way to get some extra income. If you are yet to own a property aboard, but are confused about which area you should invest in, there are some thriving areas throughout the world, which could be the perfect investment location.

International Property Investors selling up after Brexit

  With investors from overseas contemplating the full effects of the decision recently taken to leave the EU, we are seeing massive outflows of investment from overseas speculators holding property based assets in the UK. With the pound sitting not so pretty around 1.17 to the euro, the impact of Brexit has been immediate. The UK has always been an attraction for property investors all over the world from China to Abu Dhabi. Property investors have always had a romance with own prime property in areas such as London, Manchester and Birmingham. With the UK decidedly leaving the European Union, those investors are concerned and rightly so. Though dropping prime assets so soon may be seen to be premature as the UK has yet to negotiate trade deals and the final makeup of Brexit for better or worse is yet to be seen. Most commonplace is that when a currency...

European Housing Markets - which countries are performing the best?

Many countries in Europe have been ranked in order of the way in which their housing market performs. Property group CBRE have looked at the way in which they have performed over the last five years. England has performed well but the likes of Turkey, Iceland and Austria have also performed extremely well along with Sweden. 80% of these counties do not form part of the Eurozone which has experienced a crisis and have therefore gone through their own recovery. Turkey is at the top of the list with house prices growing at the fastest rate with prices increasing by 91.3% over the last five years. The economy in Turkey is growing and this is down to the way in which Istanbul is being developed. The population there is young and with new housing developments, people are keen to purchase. The banks in Turkey now have more power and are...

Are More UK Investors Going to Buy Property Abroad?

  There are currently a number of reasons to suspect that the UK's property investors may be about to increase their interest in overseas markets. Not least of these is the continuous roll-out, over the next few years, of tax changes designed to target investors in the UK market. The Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML) expects that by 2017, the number of UK homes purchased as buy-to-let investments will be down by more than 20% compared to 2015. However, most of the investors who are no longer buying UK properties will likely be looking for alternatives rather than giving up on new investments altogether. Continuing to invest in buy-to-let but doing so in overseas markets that are sheltered from the UK's current anti-lettings climate could prove an attractive solution. In particular, many markets in Europe are just at the start of recovery from recession. For investors, this means the chance to...
