Overseas Property Market Update Q4 2009

Skip to Headline Statistics or Useful Resources

Just as the UK market is performing differently on a regional basis, so is the global market. According to Global Property Guide:-

"During the last quarter of 2009, house prices rose in 22 countries, of the 34 countries for which quarterly house-price statistics are available, and fell in only 11 countries."

Meanwhile, Knight Frank throws up some interesting data for the world:-

  1. The recovery in global house prices continues with values increasing in 68% of the countries reporting price changes for Q3 09.
  2. House prices, however, are still lower than 12 months ago in 57% of the locations.
  3. Israel remains the top performer over a 12-month period with prices increasing 13.7% to the end of Q3 2009.
  4. On a quarterly basis, Singapore saw the biggest rise with prices up 15.2% during the third quarter of the year.
  5. Dubai recorded the largest annual drop (-47%), but posted moderate positive growth in Q3.

And, for those looking to buy a holiday home in sunny Spain, be warned, the market is very difficult - you might bag a bargain now, but there is so much oversupply and the economy so poor that it may continue to loose value in the future.

Be very careful when looking to buy abroad - and if you need any help, feel free to call us on 0845 838 1763 or email enquiries@designsonproperty.co.uk.
