Most overpriced markets worldwide

Worlds most overpriced real estate markets

Good article looking at prices worldwide, seems to have a reasonable methodology: The rankings were compiled by calculating an effective annualized rate of return on a property based on annual cash flows derived from renting and adjusted for capital gains tax, transaction fees, operating costs and maintenance, appreciation and inflation. For each market, it assumed no debt financing; a constant cost of capital as the buyer wouldn't shift funds based on where they buy; a 10-year hold of the property and that the property would be a nonprimary residence. Interestingly: Many of the world's most expensive markets, such as London and New York, didn't make the top 10, and were beaten out by less expensive markets that had lower yields and smaller rates of appreciation.

  • So London comes out well because of its ‘high rate of appreciation’. I don’t see how they can predict this will continue in future but then I’m not a business leader so I shouldn’t be reading their magazine anyway.
