Press release from: Propacea Limited

/ PR Agency: Propacea Limited
The Economist has just published its annual Global House Prices survey, noting that average prices in Australia have jumped by 18 per cent in the year to September 2010, as a result of China’s thirst for minerals and an appreciating currency. It also argues that prices in Spain have been kept artificially high by government action and property is overvalued by 46 per cent (Australia’s market is overvalued by 63 per cent!)

Other poor property investment locations include Hong Kong, France and the UK, which is 32 per cent higher than ‘fair value’, according to The Economist. Best value, it says, can be found in Germany, Japan and the United States, which are all under-valued.

Ireland saw the largest price falls in the past year, dropping 17 per cent, but property in the country is still over-valued, says the survey. China’s real estate appreciated by 9 per cent, whereas Singapore saw the largest rises overall, up 23 per cent. The Chinese government has taken further steps this year to cool the housing market, by raising interest rates and obliging buyers to pay higher deposits.

The survey does warn, however, that just because properties are undervalued, this does not mean that they are bound to rise. In Japan, where homes have been way below their long-term average for some years, there was a further fall in 2009-2010. Even though some experts think that the US is the most attractive location for property investment, The Economist warns that there could be further trouble ahead with banks foreclosing on delinquent loans and people with negative equity reneging on their mortgages.

Germany, at 13 per cent under-valued and with a buoyant economy, stable government and some nice lakes and mountains, may be the best bet overall.

That's right, we're developers - hated by all for our unwavering pursuit of profit and demonic need to concrete over the UK's greenbelt.
You may well wonder why we (as opposed to estate agents) are best equipped to advise you on the subject of selling property?
Surely our expertise lies in knowing how to buy land, put together development proposals, navigate the planning process and build identikit housing estates?
This is all true but it misses the one key point that our core goal (like yours) is to sell property for the highest possible price!
Just like you we also have to deal with flaky buyers, shoddy estate agents, slow solicitors and inept mortgage brokers.
The difference is, we do it on a daily basis and as such have become masters of managing the process.

Why House Price Stagnation Is A Good Thing
News from the Land Registry that average property prices fell by 1.1 per cent in March to £160,996, with other surveys painting a similar picture of tiny falls, or tiny rises, has caused commentators and property experts to bemoan the ‘stagnation’ of the market. Certainly from one point of view, stagnation is a bad sign, since the livelihoods of estate agents, surveyors, mortgage advisors and many others depends on a
Property market snapshot
As winter turns to spring and people’s minds turn to the likely upshot of the economic turmoil in Britain and its impact on the property market (at least mine does), we present a snapshot of the sentiment among property experts and commentators: Simon Rubinsohn, chief economist at Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS): “I think that confidence has improved since the end of the year but it remains fragile
Mortgage Demand Falls Off A Cliff
The government’s spending review, along with sliding house prices, has dampened demand for mortgages to its lowest level since the third quarter of 2008 – which was the lowest rating on record. The Bank of England’s analysis of credit conditions for households and businesses placed demand for home loans at -41.5 on a scale of -100 to +100. But while demand is down, the banks insist that they
UK Rental Squeeze Continues
The imbalance between high demand for private rented accommodation and the limited supply will continue to distort the market and produce unforseen quirks. According to the Association of Residential Lettings Agents (ARLA), there will be various new factors emerging: home owners who cannot sell will turn to renting their properties, knowing that rates are currently high. But this will go nowhere near saoking up the rising demand and will
