Well to all those property optomists - get out to countries like France, Australia, and the rest, to get profits in property - is this an admission that the UK looks over cooked??

Although the article is about commercial property as opposed to residential, the fundamentals still apply. As it says, a shortage of supply plus cheap loans has pushed prices up. Overcooked? I'm not qualified to say but commercial property is a somewhat more "grown up" market than residential and far less likely to be flooded with amateur investors. The pros are more likely to go offshore in pursuit of higher profits when yields at home are drying up instead of blindly ploughing money into a investments with no immediate prospect of a return.

Property companies in the know started looking at offshore opportunities a few years ago and are now getting out of them. This article is a little late!

This is what I have been saying in previous contributions to these BLOGGS over the last few weeks. Atlast the property market is now "offshoring". The IT industry did a similar thing a few years ago, why waste money investing in UK property when you can now get much much better returns overseas, particularly in the new Eastern European countries. In a similar fashion to Western companies moving offshore to escape the higher and higher salary demands of IT professionals in the dot com boom.

Now it is not upset Western Computer Programmers who will wonder waht happened but those stupid BTL amatures who do not understand basic economics. Investers want a good return if they can get it by investing overseas they will do so.

Not long now. You see DE and the BEEB the market has found a way, so lack of land and supply is no problem they will just bypass teh UK market all together, FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

Just read the the bulgarian property market has shown a huge drop in growth due to oversuppply and fierce competition for rentals. I still think britain is a safer long term bet for property (definately not for short term).

Odd that they want to invest in Australia, the market there is in a very similar position to the UK.

The obvious quick profit turnover, or even marvelous sleeper investment, must be more available abroad as compared with the UK, simply because so much is new and exploited as the EU expands. However, caution of legalities surely must come to bear as just mentioned in the current "Place in the Sun" article about surprising land grabs in Spain. Despite the attractiveness, commercial and otherwise, surely there must be a lot to learn from one country to another to be assured your investment goals will be met. All that having been said, I have oddly enough found an excellent commercial property investment in Ireland this week; which was the very last thing I'd expected. So if the foreign market seems frightening, don't despair, you may still find gold closer to home.
