Greater interest in overseas property investments

More Brits would rather invest in properties abroad rather than in the UK, according to research conducted by the Worldwide Property Group.

A survey conducted by the UK-based property investment firm found that interest in buying property overseas is now preferred to that of property in the UK, with 67 per cent of respondents saying it is a good time to make a foreign investment and 65 per cent actually considering doing so.

Property in USA generated the most responses, followed by property in Turkey and then property in Portugal.

Worldwide Property Group highlights the Turkish capital of Istanbul as offering particularly good property investment opportunities, on the back of soaring tourism levels.
