Italian property seen as safe bet

Italy and France are the 2 of the safest countries yielding greater profit regarding the overseas markets for UK property investors.

The National Association of Estate Agents International quoted that, people purchasing their property in overseas always seek for “less risky” markets for at least one year from their purchase. Italy and France are seated in the top spots for less risky markets.

NAEAI also added that in order to get property at good bargain rates then Spain and Turkey will be the best to look forward.

They consider the value of Sterling will play a major role regarding the property investment because the value has been fallen very low this year and it affected the economic growth to a greater extend.

NAEAI also added that the global property value will remain stable for during the first 3 months of 1010 but then rise after this.

The have come to this conclusion due to markets in Italy are not diminished by any sort of cheap credit or due to any instability in market value which are seen in US and Europe countries.

To quote Knight Frank, “Historically, property prices in Italy have always held.” In stark contrast, average prices in the US fell a record 18.2% through November 2008, with Las Vegas values plunging by nearly 40%, according to the 20-city Case-Shiller index.

The National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA) has disclosed their global property estimation which they believe will be the best areas to invest overseas this year.

They suggest the British are looking mainly for secure areas to buy their homes abroad by seeking good stable markets such as Italy and France.

The NAEA has predicted that there will be no change in currency for the first quarter of this year, so they have given an opinion to purchasers to invest their property before the rates change and prices increase.

Linda Travella, a chair person of NAEA Italy said that: “Sterling has regained a good position against the European currency trading two to three cents either side of 1.15 during the second half of last year.”

However she also added that the number of Britons purchasing their home properties in Italy might get diminished during the first quarter of 2010 giving opportunity to buyers.
