Hottest Real Estate Markets Worldwide

8 most attractive property investment markets this year

Investing in property is always going to be a good idea. Unless you are really, really, really unfortunate to purchase property in a city that gets demolished by natural calamities or war, it is almost impossible to lose huge amounts of money. On the other hand, there is always a possibility for your property to increase in value, bringing you profit. Many times a sizable one.

However, in order to make smart investments in real estate, you need to know which real estate markets are on the upturn, meaning that the value of properties increases with time. Today, we will be looking at the most attractive real estate markets for this year, in worldwide terms.

The island country in northern Europe is definitely making a strong comeback following the banking crisis which all but destroyed the country's economy and its real estate market with it. Over the last couple of years, however, we are seeing a dramatic increase in property value, with home prices increasing by more than 7 percent for a number of years in a row.

Another European country on the list, Turkey has its economic growth to thank for the rising home prices. In the last few years, home prices went up by around 7 percent each year, which experts believe is a direct consequence of the country's GDP being on a steady upturn. As long as the Turkish economy keeps growing, so will the house prices.

Ireland is once again picking up pace economy-wise, with the fastest growing GDP on the continent and this can also be seen on the Irish real estate market. Home prices have skyrocketed recently, with the last yearly increase rate reaching more than 17 percent. The good news is that Ireland is showing no signs of slowing down, meaning that home prices will only rise. It is a great time to buy property in Ireland, there is no doubt about that.

Hong Kong

In Asia, Hong Kong is recording some of the biggest increases in home prices in the last decade, following a rough start of the year 2014 when certain government measures cooled off investors. The Pearl of the Orient is back and in 2015, it has seen a 14 percent hike up in home prices.

The real estate market in Qatar is booming due to a mix of factors such as the construction boom associated with the FIFA World Cup in 2022, the rapid economic growth as well as increasing population. In 2015, the prices of homes went up by more than 15 percent, following 2014 which was even more staggering.

Costa Rica

In the Americas, Costa Rica is an interesting market to buy simply because it is still a buyer's market, according to experts from Encuentra24. Combine buyer's prices with a booming economy and a progressive government and you have a situation where a potential property purchase can result in huge returns down the line.

United States

In the U.S., the market is stable, with certain states faring much better than others. Most experts believe that the capital of Rhode Island, Providence is one of the best cities to buy property at the moment, mostly due to the proximity to Boston, a city on the rise. Saint Louis is also looking great, as are San Diego, Atlanta and Sacramento.
