Property as an investment can be an important component of a well-balanced portfolio. One of the impacts in Europe of the financial crisis has been a significant reduction in property prices. With lower mortgage costs and fewer local nationals entering the marketplace, this could represent an opportunity for expats in Asia to make European property investments.
With good advice and professional research, property where rental values are holding steady may offer yields which can still be expected to outpace mortgage costs. In the longer term, rental income notwithstanding, serious capital gains must be on the cards once the economy recovers.
There are varying levels and types of property investment opportunities across Europe from domestic housing to larger scale commercial developments right through to the more risky industrial sector. Even in Germany where the economy is performing better than in other Eurozone countries, potential bargains may still exist in developing areas close to prime sites.
In Italy, where the economic crisis has had a profound effect, property prices have slumped as much as 20%. Italy is still a very popular vacation destination and holiday real estate could prove a very attractive long term investment.
France has decided to raise taxation on property owned by foreigners but higher-end properties are suffering as much as a 10% hit on expected prices. For investors taking a long term view, luxury real estate in the country’s more prestigious locations still holds possibilities for good returns from both income and capital appreciation.
The well-publicised horrendous state of the Greek economy has caused property prices to plummet. Combined with the country’s potential exit from the Euro, the circumstances may be favourable for property investment across the board.
The Spanish property market is set to continue the current downward trend for some time to come. With a long term view and prudent buying, Spain still represents an attractive proposition for European property investments.
The United Kingdom economy is deep in recession and has pegged property prices at lower rates than a few years ago. Prices are down but consequently, so are the number of people entering the market. Local knowledge and good advice may prove to be the key here. Larger residential and commercial developments may still also offer significant investment opportunities.
