The most promising European Real Estate Markets in 2019 [Reading Time: 1 minute]
#Brexit , #Italy ’s political instability, #France “gilets jaunes”… These are just some of the problems that European countries and markets are experiencing in this early #2019 . The overall instable situation is mining confidence of investors all over Europe and many times, especially with rising taxations, #RealEstate market is highly affected.
However, Real Estate #investors can smile. There are 3 Real Estate opportunities, identified by studies and articles from sources as #leadingRe and #Forbes , which seems to be very very promising for 2019.
The first of these very interesting investment opportunities is #Zagreb , the Capital of #Croatia . Zagreb experienced growth in #property prices of nearly 20% in #2018 (while the rest of the country remained blocked at 8.5%). Key players of the Croatian market has shown how the demand is driven by foreign investors that positively look at the developments of Croatian market.
A second very interesting investment opportunity is #Rotterdam , in the #Netherlands . We have discussed of the strengths (and of the weaknesses) of the Dutch Real Estate Market, focusing on #Amsterdam as leading city. However, 70% of properties in Amsterdam are used for rental purposes making very difficult to buy a house. Rotterdam is benefitting from this situation and is experiencing an increase in house prices due to increase in demand from people that wants to be near the #Capital , but not in the countryside. The two cities are in fact distant just 35 minutes by train, with the recent introduction of the “high-speed trains”. Another rapidly growing market is #Lisbon , in #Portugal . Demand all over Portugal and in particular in the capital has been booming recently, driving up prices, due to the “golden visa system” where foreign investors, investing €350K in countryside or €500K in cities, can gain citizenship and a favorable tax rate.
Would you invest in one of this city over the long run? Which one?
