2014 - time to invest in European property?

  A broad range of independent think tanks, including the IMF, have recently reported positive revisions to their growth forecasts for the UK economy and there are similar encouraging signs being reported in the Eurozone. The IMF now expects the UK economy to grow 2.4% this year - faster than any other major European economy - against its previous forecast of 1.9%. This good old-fashioned economic growth equals confidence, which after a period of doom and gloom is positively refreshing. 2014 offers exciting opportunities for UK buyers, led by London and the South-East, fuelled by recent house price surges and the banks corresponding willingness to lend. According to the Halifax, house prices have risen by 7.7% across the country as a whole. In London the figure is closer to 10%. The IMF also raised its global growth outlook for 2014 to 3.7%. This combined with strong interest in European property also coming from Russia, China and USA means that it is also a superb time to sell – as long as prices are kept sensibly pitched deals will be made. With further growth predicted 2014 certainly has the profile of being a great time to invest in property. But buy where and buy what' The traditional high-end strongholds (Tuscany, Switzerland, Riviera, French Alps, Provence) remain the most buoyant. The last to be affected by dismal economies, they are also the first to respond to more clement market conditions. Buying in these hot spots doesn’t come cheap but those seeking a comparatively modest investment should not be put off. Contact Winkworth International for individual consultation. Luxury properties in desirable locations appear to have everything: wonderful food, sumptuous lifestyles and swathes of culture. All of which promises a thoroughly enjoyable investment. But a long history of desirability has bred a culture of discretion around the advertising and selling of such properties. They can be somewhat elusive, elusive to the point of being almost impossible to find. This can be a discouraging experience if you are new to the luxury property market. Winkworth has the experience, the contacts and crucially, a strong dual nationality team on hand to guide you through this maze of discretion.
