Spanish property interest hits three-year high

Spanish property interest hits three-year high

Portugal Spain
  • Spain takes top three most-searched locations
  • Malaga, Almeira and Tenerife most popular places in Spain
  • Portugal occupies eight out of top 50 property hotspots

Interest in Spanish property surged to a three-year high at the start of 2017, reveals TheMoveChannel.com’s latest Hotspots Index. The report, which charts the most searched-for locations on the international property portal, saw Malaga soar to first place in Q1 2017 – the first time Spain has ever ranked in the number one spot.

Malaga accounted for 4.01 per cent of all searches on the international portal in the first three months of 2017, climbing 18 positions from Q4 2016 to knock Italy’s Florence off its perch. This is the first time in 18 months that Italy has not topped TheMoveChannel.com’s Hotspots Index.

Almeria was the second most sought-after location on the site, with 3.56 per cent of searches, followed by Tenerife (3.40 per cent) and, down three places, Florence (2.63 per cent). Benidorm completed the top five with 2.53 per cent of searches. Indeed, Spain was home to eight out of the 10 most popular locations in Q1 2017, the highest percentage of the Top 10 ever held by a single country since Hotspots Index records began in Q4 2014. Spain was also responsible for 13 out of the Top 15.

Portugal was home to 8 of the Top 50, ahead of Italy (5) and France (3). Portugal’s most popular hotspots were Albufeira (14th), Cascais (18th) and Alvor (19th). Interest in Italy was fuelled by Florence (4th), Rome (8th) and Verona (27th). France’s most sought-after hotspot was Paris (15th), highlighting the capital’s importance as a magnet for romantic lifestyle buyers and a safe haven for wealthy investors.

Thailand’s Pattaya climbed two places in the chart, attracting the 16th biggest share of searches. Greece’s Athens was the 45th most popular hotspot, while the USA accounted for one hotspot: Detroit, ranked in 33rd.

Spain, though, dominated buyers’ wishlists at the start of the year. The country was home to 31 of TheMoveChannel.com’s Top 50 hotspots, more than double its share of the index in Q4 2016 and an all-time high for any country.

The figures follow Spain’s similar rise in TheMoveChannel.com’s latest Top of the Props report, which saw the country account for 14.02 per cent of all enquiries on the site in February 2016 – its largest share of activity since 2013. Indeed, new data from Spain’s Land Registry shows that sales of property increased 19 per cent in January year-on-year to reach the highest number of transactions since January four years ago.

“Spain is undoubtedly the flavour of the month,” says Dan Johnson, Director of TheMoveChannel.com. “Searches and enquiries are both at highs not seen for several years, showing that foreign buyers are actively seeking opportunities in Spain and are following through on those searches. Agents have reported a slowdown in enquiries from British buyers since the Brexit vote, but expat favourite Benidorm’s position in Q1’s Top 5 hotspots shows that there is still interest from the UK, despite the pound’s weakness against the euro.

“Foreign buyers are still drawn primarily to tourist hospots, such as the Costa Blanca and Malaga, where they are helping to drive property prices up. With Spain’s economy growing, though, business hubs such as Barcelona are also fuelling overseas demand. Spain’s housing market is still not recovering at the same rate across the whole country, but with property values starting to rebound, the promise of capital growth and the country’s timeless lifestyle appeal mean that Spanish real estate has rarely appeared so attractive.”

Top of the Props: Foreign buyers go back to Greece

Top of the Props: Foreign buyers go back to Greece

Greece Italy United States World
  • Greece now 4th most popular country
  • Interest in Greek property at six-month high
  • Italy climbs to third place and Spain holds on to second
  • Investors return to Canada after recent dip in popularity

Foreign property buyers are going back to Greece at the start of 2017, reveals TheMoveChannel.com’s Top of the Props index. The country was the fourth most popular country on the international property portal in January 2017, its first time in the Top 10 in six months.

Greece stormed the charts at the start of the new year, rising 18 places to overtake Portugal in the monthly report. Greek real estate received 2.1 per cent of all enquiries on the international portal during January. This is the country’s highest share of enquiries since August 2013, when it accounted for 3.26 per cent of all enquiries. Greece’s last time in the Top 10 was in July 2016, when it was ranked ninth, with 1.39 per cent of enquiries.

Italy also enjoyed rising overseas interest, climbing five places in the Top of the props chart to be the third most sought-after destination. Italian real estate accounted for 5.97 per cent of January’s enquiries, up from 1.59 per cent in December 2016 and its highest share since August 2012 (6.12 per cent).

Spain held on to second place, confirming the country’s continuing appeal to foreign investors. Portugal rose one place into fifth, increasing its share of enquiries from 1.92 per cent to 2.02 per cent. France slipped into ninth, but remained in the Top 10 for the 17th month in a row, just above Thailand and just below Germany.

After a dip in popularity, following the introduction of Vancouver’s foreign buyer tax last August, Canada saw investors return, with the country climbing into sixth place.

The USA remained the most popular destination on TheMoveChannel.com for the seventh consecutive month, accounting for one in every six enquiries (14.65 per cent).

“After a brief rekindling of interest last summer, the start of 2017 showed signs of overseas demand for Greek property flickering back to life,” comments TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson.

“Interest was not just contained to one area, but across several regions, with enquiries soaring for property in the North Aegean, Crete, the South Aegean and Attica.

“After a year of political uncertainty elsewhere, talk of national debt and a potential ‘Grexit’ is back in the headlines in 2017, but Greece’s lifestyle appeal has not gone away. In fact, it is more affordable than ever, after house prices have dropped for the last eight years in a row. In 2016, however, they fell 2.2 per cent, the smallest decrease recorded since 2009. With the rate of decline slowing, and owning a holiday home now an attractive alternative to renting, foreign interest in Greek real estate may be showing the first signs of a gradual rebound.”

“US property remains one of the most appealing in the world,” adds Mr. Johnson. “The country’s economy, regardless of its political situation, is stable, with the Federal Reserve still on course to raise interest rates again this year. The country’s economic conditions may be the opposite of Greece, but their popularity shares one key factor: the low price of Greek real estate maximises the potential yield available from rental income, while in the US, investors are racing to find the best possible returns, before property values climb too high.”

Hotspots Index: Spain’s international appeal stays strong

Hotspots Index: Spain’s international appeal stays strong

Italy Spain Thailand World
  • Spain enjoys rebound at the end of 2016
  • Rome and Florence occupy top spots for property interest
  • Toronto appears in top 50 for first time

Spain’s appeal to international property buyers shows no sign of waning, according to TheMoveChannel.com’s latest Hotspots Index.

The quarterly report, which analyses location searches on the property portal, reveals that Spain is enjoying a rebound in popularity at the end of 2016, led by Barcelona and Benidorm.

Italy’s Florence remained the most sought-after hotspot on the property portal in Q4 2016, accounting for 3.37 per cent of location searches, up from 2.86 per cent in Q3 2016. This is the second quarter in a row that Florence has been the top hotspot on TheMoveChannel.com, after overtaking Rome in Q2 2016.

Rome remained the second most popular market for house-hunters. While Italy dominated search activity in Q3 2016, though, making up seven out of the Top 10 hotspots, the country’s share in Q4 2016 fell to three out of 10, just ahead of Portugal’s two. Spain, on the other hand, saw a rebound in searches, accounting for four out of the Top 10 destinations. In Q3 2016, Spain accounted for none of the Top 10, highlighting the significant rise in interest quarter-on-quarter.

Spain’s renewed international appeal was fuelled by Barcelona (sixth place, 1.06 per cent of searches) and Benidorm (seventh place, 0.99 per cent). Torrevieja and Tenerife completed the Top 10 in ninth and 10th place respectively. Spain also dominated the overall Hotspots Index, accounting for 18 out of the Top 50 hotspots – up from 10 in Q3 and higher than any other country. Italy was the second most in-demand, accounting for 13 out of the Top 50. Portugal was third, with 10 out of the Top 50.

Thailand’s Pattaya held onto its 18th place ranking. Liverpool also remained the UK’s only entry in the Top 50, sliding from 34th to 36th in the chart. Canada saw its first entry in the Hotspots Index, with Toronto receiving the 32nd highest share of searches in Q4 2016.

“There has been talk in recent months of declining demand for Spanish property in the wake of the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, thanks to the pound’s weakness,” comments TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson. “Spain, though, still shows signs of being as popular as ever among lifestyle buyers, with the Costa Blanca, Costa Brava and British expat favourite Benidorm all among the most searched-for destinations on TheMoveChannel.com in Q4 2016. For US or other non-EU buyers, Spain is also an attractive investment, for either buy-to-let or capital growth opportunities. It is perhaps no surprise that Barcelona, which combines both tourist and investor markets, is the most popular hotspot in Spain.

“One impact of Brexit that can be seen in search behaviour is Liverpool’s continuing appeal in the UK. As the weaker pound draws buyers to the country, the city’s economy is growing, with new developments and strong rental yields all reinforcing the city as a major regional hotspot. It is interesting also that Canada’s first entry in the Hotspots Index was Toronto, rather than Vancouver, following the city’s introduction of a foreign buyer tax in Q3 2016. Will 2017 see that trend continue? And will buyers continue to flock to Spain?”

Foreign property buyers return to Cyprus

Foreign property buyers return to Cyprus

Cyprus World
  • Interest in Cyprus reaches 12-month high
  • Hungary enters the Top 10 and Italy rises to sixth place
  • USA remains the most sought-after real estate destination for investors

Overseas buyers are showing signs of returning to Cyprus, with the country entering TheMoveChannel.com’s Top 10 most popular destinations in November for the first time in a year.

The property portal’s latest Top of the Props report reveals a rebound in interest for Cypriot real estate, with enquiries for property on the island reaching a 12-month high in November 2016. Enquiries more than doubled in real terms month-on-month, taking the country storming 10 places up the Top of the Props chart to steal the eighth spot, knocking France down a place in the process. Cypriot property accounted for 1.62 per cent of all enquiries on the portal in November, marginally ahead of French property’s 1.6 per cent. This is the country’s highest share of enquiries since November 2015, when it accounted for 2.29 per cent.

Cyprus led an uprising among several European destinations in November, with Hungary also entering the Top 10 and Italy rising four places into sixth. The share of enquiries for more traditional continental destinations, such as Spain and Portugal, dipped slightly month-on-month, which may be a sign that the weak pound post-Brexit has weighed upon British buying appetite, although both countries remain in the top four destinations, highlighting their enduring popularity among a wide range of investors.

The USA remains the most sought-after real estate destination for investors, as Donald Trump’s election victory has only gone on to boost the dollar and strengthen sentiment surrounding the American economy. Some investors have also turned to other markets, with Slovenia, home country of future First Lady Melania Trump, seeing enquiries rise, Brazil enjoying a surge in demand, and the UAE also seeing a renewed wave of interest.

TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson comments: “2016 has been a dramatic year with a number of surprising events on the world stage, from referendums and elections to property taxes. Investors continue to adapt and adjust their focus in response, while lifestyle buyers continue to look for their place in the sun. In a sign that property hunters are taking into account fluctuating currency exchange rates, demand climbed in Mexico, where the peso is weak, last month, and also in Bulgaria, where prices are lower than more expensive European lifestyle destinations.

“Monthly activity can vary in these dramatic times, though, so quarterly activity can be a more effective measure of investment trends. Indeed, America’s enquiries in real terms have risen 5 per cent in the three months to November, compared to the previous three months, reinforcing its international appeal. The gradual rebound in Cyprus’ popularity is also more apparent: Cyprus has now been inside the Top 20 most popular destinations on TheMoveChannel.com for 10 months in a row. In real terms, enquiries for the island’s real estate have varied on a month-by-month basis throughout 2016, but rose 20 per cent in Q2 compared to Q1 2016 and increased 8 per cent in the three months to November compared to the previous three months. Will they keep climbing as we enter 2017?”

Overseas investors still in love with the USA

Overseas investors still in love with the USA

World
  • US property most popular for international investors
  • Overseas buyers return to Greece
  • The Philippines emerges as rising star of 2016
  • Demand for Dubai real estate stays strong

Overseas investors are still in love with the USA, reveals TheMoveChannel.com’s latest Top of the Props report. US property stole back the number one spot from Spain in July 2016, becoming the most sought-after country on the property portal, for the sixth time this year.

American dream still going strong

The recent vote by the UK to leave the European Union has seen both the pound and euro weaken against the US dollar, but international investors around the world refused to be deterred from their American dream in the month following the referendum’s result.

US property accounted for 1 in 12 of all enquiries (8.1 per cent) across the month, climbing two places in TheMoveChannel.com’s chart to overtake both Spain and the UAE.

“America’s residential market continues to enjoy strong capital appreciation, fuelled by low mortgage rates, steady employment growth and limited supply,” explains TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson. “Investors are therefore still turning to affordable markets with high returns, such as Detroit, and perennial hotspot Florida. Commercial property in New York is also a significant driver of demand, thanks to the country’s stable and steady economy growth.”

Europe not down and out

While the UK is preparing to leave the EU, investors have lost none of their appetite for the continent’s real estate. Despite Spain’s slide into second place, enquiries remained strong for European property in July, with familiar favourites Portugal, Italy and France all in TheMoveChannel.com’s 10 most popular destinations.

Buyers returned to Greece, with the country’s share of enquiries hitting a 19-month high in July. As a result, the country climbed five places from 14th to ninth. Interest in Germany is also at a record high, with the country entering the Top 5 for the first time. Bulgaria and Cyprus both entered the month’s Top 15 destinations too.

“The relatively weak euro means that European real estate remains a highly attractive prospect for international buyers, whether from outside the EU or in the UK. Rising values in Spain and Portugal, low mortgage rates in France and the timeless lifestyle appeal of Italy are still drawing investors, while Germany’s growing economy and Greece’s low prices mean property is good value in both countries. Seven out of July’s Top 10 destinations are in Europe; proof that the continent has lost none of its clout.”

Dubai demand stays strong

Away from Europe, demand for Dubai real estate remains strong, with the UAE continuing to move up and down within TheMoveChannel.com’s Top 10 destinations.

According to data from the Dubai Land Department (DLD), British nationals are the third largest group of investors in the city’s property, with experts welcoming the recent price correction for residential property, as the market moves from speculative to end-user investment ahead of 2020’s Word Expo.

“Dubai has become a regular presence in TheMoveChannel.com’s rankings in 2016, appearing five times in seven months,” comments Johnson. “The UAE’s appeal has been boosted by its improving transparency. According to JLL, the emirate is now the most transparent property market in MENA.”

The rise of the Philippines

The Philippines has been another rising star of 2016, with the country re-entering the Top 5 destinations on TheMoveChannel.com in July. This is the third time the islands have appeared in the Top 10 this year.

With both the Philippines and UAE removed from the unfolding EU situation, will they become new favourites for post-Brexit investors, or is July’s rising interest just driven by strong opportunities?

“While Dubai’s residential real estate is on course for recovery in 2017, July’s activity was particularly driven by commercial property,” adds Johnson. “Office vacancy rates are falling and demand for space remains high. Opportunities such as a co-working development in the city are opening up new avenues in the emirate’s economy.”

Ray Withers, CEO of specialist international property investment company Property Frontiers, which has recently brought the Portofino Ocean’s Edge resort to the market, attributes the Philippines’ appeal to the country’s record-breaking tourism figures.

“Demand for high end hotel accommodation in the Philippines has never been greater and the country is racing to increase supply enough to keep up with demand. With high quality new resorts required in key tourism hotspots, international investors are keen to buy into the Philippines now in order to be part of the wave of new construction that is required to service the increased level of visitors. JLL’s finding that the Asia Pacific region is the most improved in the world for real estate transparency has furthered this significant trend of international demand for resort investments in the Philippines.”

Interview: Nakheel discusses the changing face of Dubai property

Interview: Nakheel discusses the changing face of Dubai property

Dubai

Dubai has long been associated with luxury developments and extravagant architecture, but the emirate’s property market continues to grow and mature – and it’s a change that is welcomed by developer Nakheel.

The company behind the iconic Palm Jumeirah was in London at The Dubai Property Show this month. In an exclusive interview with TheMoveChannel.com, Chief Commercial Officer Aqil Kazim discussed the changing face of the Dubai real estate.

Here are seven insights from inside Dubai’s property market:

1. Speculators are being replaced by end users

“We’re seeing a shift from speculator market to a more end user market, which is what Dubai was looking to do anyway. It’s very healthy. Today, we sell to end users more than speculators and this is what we’re all about. Reasons to invest are perhaps rental yield, perhaps the lifestyle of Dubai, perhaps you have family and friends there, perhaps you want a second home.”

“The situation in Dubai was… the speed at which capital appreciation was happening was just too fast and a lot of people wanted to jump on that opportunity, which is not wrong, but it’s not something that we encourage. We would like some speculation, but not the entire thing based on speculation.”

2. Cooling prices are not a concern

Dubai’s prices cooled last year, but the mood is positive in the real estate industry.

“I call that a correction more than anything else. There are a few factors causing that – overall, there’s a global effect. Interestingly, rentals haven’t dropped as fast as prices have dropped, so the yields are actually increasing – again, it’s becoming more and more attractive for people who are looking into buying and investing and leasing or even choosing it as a home because they’re getting better prices. As far as Nakheel is concerned, we have projects in both high end categories as well as investment categories, so we have a variety of options.”

3. Brits: Nakheel’s third largest group of investors outside the Middle East

British investment in Dubai has been there for many years, says Kazim.

“The relationship between the two cities of London and Dubai has been a close relationship. There are a lot of similarities. Both are central hubs for trade, finance. The reasons to select Dubai are the sunshine throughout the year, the cultural scene is very compatible for what British investors look for – we have more than 170 nationalities in Dubai. A simple example I keep giving is the education sector: we have a lot of boutique syllabuses. If I were from Japan and I wanted my son to go to a Japanese school, that option is available. Korean schools. The number of British curriculum A Levels, GCSEs, all of them are available.”

4. The Expo 2020 boost is starting now

Dubai is hosting the World Expo in 2020, something that is widely expected to give a boost to Dubai’s property market.

“I think now’s the time for it to start,” comments Kazim. “We’re in 2016, the event’s in 2020, and it’s a large scale project. We sell plots of land to third party developers. Those developers who bought land from us in the past have started to construct projects, purely because they’ve seen demand rising out of projects like Expo.”

5. Tourism: There’s a clear demand for 3-star hotels

Dubai is associated with high-end homes and luxury hotels, but there is growing demand for 3-star hotels in the emirate.

“As far as hospitality is concerned, there’s a clear demand for 3-star hotels. Not to say that 5-star is not in demand, but Dubai’s target is to achieve 20 million annual visitors and tourists by the year 2020. We’re still quite far off – we’re at 14.5 million right now – so the number of rooms has got to increase.”

6. Oversupply is not an issue

Despite some media reports, Nakheel is not concerned about the possibility of oversupply in the market.

“We deliver projects on a feasibility basis and it has got to be able to fulfil some kind of demand for us to launch it. There are reports out there talking about oversupply. I don’t know, I’m probably an optimist, but you’re looking at a city that has ambitious growth plans in term of resident population. Even if that growth was half achieved, we would be in short supply, not oversupply. We wouldn’t be building projects if it wouldn’t be fulfilling a certain demand.”

7. On the growing number of tall buildings around the world…

“Competition is always good! Dubai is not a very old city – it’s been around for 50 years or so,” he adds. “We want to be competitive. And a lot of these [landmarks] are value propositions – having the tallest tower attracts tourists, having the biggest mall attracts a certain type of clientele. You will notice that the architecture of Dubai focuses a little bit on the vanity side, you’re quite right. It’s important to attract tourists on a repetitive basis – as a tourist, I want to be able to see something new every year.”

Hotspots Index: Buyers head back to Italy

Hotspots Index: Buyers head back to Italy

World
  • Rome most searched-for location in the world
  • Interest in France on the up
  • Paris enters Top 10 most popular hotspots for first time
  • Italy neck-and-neck with Portugal

Overseas buyers are heading back to Italy and France, reveals new research from TheMoveChannel.com. The portal’s Q4 2015 Hotspots Index saw Rome remain the most searched-for location in the world in the final months of the year. This is the third consecutive quarter that Rome has held the number one spot.

Italy’s rebound in popularity has been building throughout 2015, thanks to the country’s strong lifestyle appeal, which has been amplified by the weak euro. Favourable exchange rates have fuelled demand for all of Europe’s traditional property hotspots, with Spain and Portugal in particular stealing the limelight. Now, though, the tide may be about to change.

Portugal’s share of searches on TheMoveChannel.com reduced for the first time in Q4 2015, accounting for 11 of the Top 50 locations in the portal’s Hotspots Index. Interest remains high for Portuguese property, with the country accounting for four of the Top 10 locations. Indeed, Ponta Delgada rose 11 places in Q3 2015 to storm into the Top 10. It rose one more place in Q4 2015 to seize the second spot with 1.31 per cent of all location searches. Ericeira (1.21 per cent), though, slipped into fourth place, as Fiji’s Lautoka (1.27 per cent) overtook to take third.

Spain, despite accounting for eight locations in the Top 50 (up from seven in Q3 2015), saw Malaga slide into ninth place with 0.83 per cent. Cyprus and Greece, meanwhile, fell out of the Top 10 altogether, as buyers swapped their economically uncertain markets for old favourites.

Buyers have also returned to France in greater numbers, with the country entering the Top 10 for the first time in Q4 2015. Lyon raced 12 places up the chart to become the sixth most searched-for location (1.06 per cent), followed by Paris, which rocketed 28 places up the chart to become the seventh most popular location (1.02 per cent). Italy completed the Top 10 with another new entrant: Terni, the fifth most popular location in Q4 2015.

“The weak euro has been the defining story of 2015, sending buyers from overseas – particularly the UK and the USA – flooding into Europe’s property markets to snap up available opportunities. While Portugal and Spain have dominated demand for the majority of the year, France and Italy are starting to steal the show, their relatively stable markets stealing house-hunters away from the more uncertain bargain zones of Greece and Cyprus.

“France’s record low mortgage rates mean that real estate in the country is more affordable than it ever has been, especially in comparison to rising UK house prices. You would expect to see Paris in the Top 10 most searched-for locations in the world, so it is revealing that the French capital is now taking its rightful place in the Hotspots Index.

“Italy’s economy underperformed in Q3 2015, with growth reducing from 0.3 per cent to 0.2 per cent, while house price declines are gradually slowing, but the favourable exchange rate has kept the sentiment broadly upbeat among investors. Indeed, the country now accounts for 11 of the Top 50 locations on TheMoveChannel.com, neck-and-neck with previous champion Portugal.”

USA overtakes Spain to take Top of the Props title

USA overtakes Spain to take Top of the Props title

World
  • Demand for US property up 14pc
  • Demand for French property up 24pc
  • USA most popular country on TheMoveChannel.com for fourth time in 2015

The USA has overtaken Spain to reclaim the number one spot in TheMoveChannel.com’s Top of the Props league.

Spain has largely dominated the Top of the Props table in 2015, thanks to the country’s gradual recovery attracting more buyers, as well as the appeal of favourable exchange rates with the weak euro. The USA, though, has also proven attractive, with markets such as Florida and Detroit already established among international investors.

Enquiries for US property in real terms increased 14 per cent in October 2015 month-on-month, taking the USA into the number one position for only the fourth time this year. US property accounted for 8.86 per cent of enquiries in October, up from 8.02 per cent.

Spain, on the other hand, saw its share of enquiries slip from 9.33 per cent to 7.78 per cent. This is the first time that Spain has not been ranked number one in five months.

Brazil also enjoyed a mini-boom in popularity, its share of enquiries almost doubling from 3.9 per cent in September 2015 to 6.29 per cent in October. As Brazil rose one place into third, Portugal was hot on its heels, climbing back into the top five to seize fourth spot. France fell two places, but remained in the top five, its share of enquiries edging down slightly from 4.93 per cent to 4.11 per cent.

Thailand also fell slightly out of favour among buyers, dropping out of the top 10 for only the second time this year, as attention instead shifted to Turkey and the UAE. The Cayman Islands was the month’s biggest climber, rocketing 30 places up the rankings to enter the top 10 for the third time in 2015 so far.

On a long-term basis, though, October’s Top of the Props rankings highlight the established favourites among overseas investors: Canada’s drop out of the top five caused the top of the table to return the same European-heavy line-up that was most popular with investors in 2013: USA, Spain, Brazil, Portugal and France.

Indeed, while America is top dog, France’s ongoing presence in the top five demonstrates the improving sentiment surrounding the country, with enquiries up 24 per cent in real terms month-on-month and up 43 per cent in the three months to October 2015 compared to the preceding three months. Greece also saw its number of enquiries rise 18 per cent month-on-month, while Portugal enjoyed a surge of 77 per cent month-on-month.

TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson comments: “Detroit and Florida remain two of the most sought-after investment hotspots in the world, a fact that has propelled the USA back to the top of TheMoveChannel.com rankings for the fourth time this year. Europe, though, has lost none of its appeal, with low mortgage rates, low property prices and high exchange rates with the euro holding Spain, Portugal and France in the portal’s top five destinations consistently for the past three years.”

Investment Watch – Investors gobble up property in Turkey

Investment Watch – Investors gobble up property in Turkey

Turkey World ,
  • Turkey home to most popular listing for first time
  • Investors target opportunities under £100k
  • Student property drives demand for UK property

Investors are gobbling up property in Turkey, reveals TheMoveChannel.com’s latest Investment Watch report. The country’s strong economy and improving infrastructure boosted its appeal in May 2015, as new apartments in Istanbul attracted the highest number of enquiries on the portal.

Diamond Residence, located in the upmarket area of Old Beylikdüzü, received 20 per cent more enquiries than its nearest rival in May 2015.

The project, which comprises 148 one and two-bedroom apartments, includes 24 hour security, a fitness centre, swimming pool, children’s games room and cinema. The properties were advertised at £57,000, with a 6 per cent rental guarantee for five years.

The return was topped by the runner-up listing, a student housing development in the UK city of Preston. The accommodation, consisting of 246 rooms, offered 10 per cent net income guaranteed for 10 years for £46,950.

Indeed, student property continues to be a driver of investment activity, thanks to the sector’s stability and low entry costs. In May 2015, student property accounted for three of the 10 most popular listings on TheMoveChannel.com, the 19th month in a row that the sector has appeared in the Investment Watch chart.

Student property is a central part of UK real estate’s appeal to investors: all three of the UK listings in the Investment Watch Top 10 were student accommodation investments.

Land and buy-to-let investments also remain popular opportunities among investors, accounting for three and four of the top 10 listings respectively.

Land in the Cayman Islands was the third most popular listing in May, with plots in Canada and Brazil also drawing interest.

The USA offered the most attractive buy-to-let opportunity, with properties generating up to 22 per cent net income and up to 12 month rental guarantees. Spain has also seen its long-term rental market grow significantly in the years since the recession, with apartments producing 6 per cent rental income.

The most important factor for many investors, though, was the price: all of the 10 most popular listings had an asking price of under £100,000, while seven of the listings were under £50,000.

TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson comments: “Buy-to-let property in Detroit and student housing in the UK have been hugely popular among international investors since the recession, thanks to their consistently strong yields and affordable prices. Indeed, with seven of May’s Top 10 listings under £50,000, investors are still being cautious with their budgets.

“It is no surprise that one of the only two listings worth over £50,000 in the Top 5 was located in Spain: the country’s housing market has become one of the most sought-after in the world, as a result of its bottoming prices, improving economy and favourable exchange rates thanks to the weak euro. Istanbul’s number one ranking establishes Turkey alongside Spain as an investor favourite: this is the first time that the country has been home to the most popular listing on TheMoveChannel.com.”

“The Turkish property market is fast gaining worldwide recognition, with the Knight Frank Global House Price Index for Q4 2014 placing the nation second in the world in terms of its house price growth and the country’s economic growth is also being forecast positively by The European Commission,” comments Philip Skorochod, Director of Turkish property agency Universal21, who have brought Diamond Residence to the market.

“Alongside this, Turkish tourism is booming – especially in Istanbul. Turkey’s top to-visit location witnessed an above-the-curve increase of 8.99% in the numbers of foreign visitors arriving in the first quarter of this year, according to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, and this is obviously more positive news for the prospects of the property market.”

“With an expanding infrastructure, new ground-breaking projects under development and historic and cultural charm, Istanbul has much to offer,” the agency adds.

“There is a really positive, exciting vibe of growth and evolution in the city today, drawing international attentions and increasingly so. Taking 49.88 per cent of Turkey’s visiting population, Istanbul registers far more visitors than its closest rival of Antalya and for those looking to purchase a property that can be rented to these visitors, such investors are in luck. Diamond Residence is ideal for both overseas visitors and those looking to benefit from the growing market.”

Top of the Props: Foreign buyers still in love with American dream

Top of the Props: Foreign buyers still in love with American dream

World
  • Enquiries for US property up 51pc
  • Demand rises for property in Portugal and Italy
  • Europe makes up three of top five countries
  • Turkey re-enters top five destinations

Overseas investors are still in live with the American dream, TheMoveChannel.com’s new Top of the Props report reveals.

Foreign buyers appeared to have woken up earlier this year, as demand for US property plummeted to an all-time low in February 2015. America’s share of enquiries halved month-on-month, as rising prices, the strong dollar and low inventory left the country less attractive than Europe’s ultra-affordable destinations. It was only the second time since July 2013 that the USA was the not the most popular country on TheMoveChannel.com, but Spain continued to dominate for another two months, holding the number one slot in the Top of the Props chart through to April 2015.

In May, though, investors went back to America. In real terms, US property enquiries on TheMoveChannel.com jumped 51 per cent month-on-month, as the country’s share of activity on the portal rose from 5.78 per cent to 8.49 per cent.

European appeal

Spain slipped into second place, its share of enquiries falling from 9.72 per cent to 6.66 per cent. France’s share of enquiries also decreased, as the country fell from sixth place to 10th in the Top of the Props chart.

Europe, though, remains a key driver of activity on TheMoveChannel.com: Spain, Portugal, Italy continue to make up three of the top five destinations.

Indeed, Portugal and Italy held onto their positions during a period of fluctuating interest, with both increasing their share of enquiries month-on-month: Portugal’s stake rose from 5.63 per cent to 6.41 per cent, while Italy’s increased from 3.4 per cent to 3.85 per cent.

Portugal has emerged as one of Europe’s most popular markets in the past six months, thanks to the weak euro and signs of recovering prices across all regions. In real terms, enquiries for Portuguese property climbed 4 per cent in May 2015. Italy also saw enquiries increase 5 per cent in real terms, as both countries establish themselves as attractive, regardless of investors’ attentions switching between America and Spain.

Thailand and Turkey tussle for top spot

After a year of instability, Thailand returned to the Top 10 in February 2015, before rising into the top five, where it remained for two months. Thailand tumbled out of the top five in May 2015, though, as the country faces competition from Turkey for the coveted fourth spot.

Turkey’s share of enquiries more than doubled to 4.26 per cent in May, as prices and foreign sales continued to climb, particularly in the thriving Istanbul market. Indeed, Turkey has been a permanent fixture in TheMoveChannel.com’s Top of the Props chart in recent years. The country fell to 10th place in February 2015, but buyers did not stay away for long: Turkey climbed one place in April 2015, before rising five places to knock Thailand from fourth.

Thailand’s share of enquiries, though, only decreased from 4.61 per cent to 3.61 per cent, placing it above popular favourites Brazil, Canada, France and even the UAE, which returned to the Top 10 in May for the second time this year.

TheMoveChannel.com Director Dan Johnson comments: “The American Dream is not over for foreign buyers. The country’s rising house prices and recovering economy has seen domestic US buyers return to the property ladder in greater numbers, but overseas investors remain active in key hotspots. Florida remains a central part of the USA’s appeal to international buyers, but Detroit is increasingly the market of choice: demand for property in Michigan overtook the Sunshine State in May 2015 for the first time since October 2014.

“Despite the rise in US interest, neither Spain nor the USA are overly dominant: demand continues to be spread across a wide range of countries on TheMoveChannel.com, as investors remain open-minded about which markets can offer the best returns. With Portugal and Italy both enjoying rising interest, though, Europe is set to drive activity for many months to come.”
