45: Ranked List of Attractive Holiday Home Destinations for NW Europeans


11-12-2005

PropertyInvesting.net

 

PropertyInvesting.net provides our visitors with the below ranked list of holiday home destinations for your benefit. The analysis can be used to guide you into where you might wish to purchase as holiday/investment home abroad. It is based on an English speaking person living normally in UK, Ireland or Benelux (or NW Europeans) and travelling to these destinations by car or plane.

 

If you visualise that if growth in asset prices in future years follows the trend of middle-upper income people buying second home for either investment, holidays, second homes in the sun, or retirement homes, then it could help guide your investment decisions.

 

We have inserted Mongolia as a reference benchmark - an unattractive holiday destination to calibrate the table.

 

As an example, there has been a strong trend for UK citizens to purchase properties in Cyprus – why is this? Will it continue? If you look at this analysis, you would expect it to continue since the country ranks very high on almost all criteria – the country has many benefits (320 days sunshine and no winter helps!). Will all those asset rich retiring baby-boomers want a property close to the beach in Cyprus - pretty good bet this trend will continue, barring a big hike in airline taxes or security fears.

 

This analysis, albeit it is judgemental, can partly explain why Southern Spain continues to be such a popular holiday destination. Any wander 1 million people will move to Andalusia in the next ten years - and I dont know where they build all the homes!
