France consistently features as one of the top ten global property hotspots.

Despite the regular gloom about property, with dipping prices and slow markets it is sometimes important to remind ourselves of the price increases that have been achieved over periods longer than just 2 or 3 years ……

So perhaps it’s a good idea to take a look at how global property prices have fared over the last 10 years …

According to a survey carried out by AOL money and finance this month there is a distinct top ten list when it comes to global property hotspots - some surprises perhaps but pleasing to note for us that France is up there and has performed well in its usual consistent and secure fashion.

League Table Position:                                  %age Average Price Change
                                                                                In last 10 years:

India                                                                           284%
Russia                                                                       209%
South Africa                                                              161%
Lithuania                                                                    143%
Hong Kong                                                                125%
Bulgaria                                                                     106%
FRANCE                                                                     82%
New Zealand                                                               79%
Australia                                                                       76%
Norway                                                                         72%

The UK was recorded at 50% and came fairly low down in the rankings

France remains a safe bet and as it equally fares well in ‘best places to live’ surveys, a sound property buying decision both financially and for 
quality of life …..
