International Property Investment Outlook for 2015

OleHouen

The international real estate investment landscape is always changing. The uncertainty in the global economy and property markets over the past decade caused many investors to retreat back to a few well-known, comfortable and safe property investment havens such as London, Hong Kong and San Francisco, generally leaving Dubai, France and Spain, as well as more exotic markets like Brazil.

However, as we edge towards 2015, many are forecasting a change as investor’s appetites for higher yields grow. In fact, the safe and comfortable markets that have been doing well in 2014 might not have the same outlook in 2015.

For example, some believe the market in London, UK is set on having the most significant losses in 2015. London estate agents have already reported price adjustments and anticipate demand to dwindle significantly in the upcoming year.

In Asia, Hong Kong and mainland China have been modeling the effect of a new property crash, which could see prices plummet anywhere from 25 percent to over 50 percent.

While some international markets are anticipating slowdowns, Canada remains a shining star on the international property map.
