Cut and paste would be nice for non subscribers.

It's mainly aimed at international commercial property investors however this bit's relevant;

"For now, most concerns have focused on residential property, but more profe ssionals are speaking - privately or publicly - about commercial property. It is not that they are predicting a crash. But many fear that double-digit returns will be harder to achieve and that falls in prices are possible in over-exposed markets. The generic property boom is, to a great extent, one of the many co n sequences of the unprecedented liquidity in global financial markets. The cost of borrowing is so low - from Osaka to Nebraska - that investors can afford to buy real estate at ever higher prices. So the first danger for the market is interest rates. In the US a monetary po licy tightening is under way. In Europe, further rises are a possibility this year . In Japan, most experts expect a rise in interest rates from its current zero level. Cuts in rates are only considered likely in a few countries, such as the UK."
