Athena Insight Currency Report August 2016

13 August 2016

Changes in currency values have affected the affordability of residential and commercial properties across Europe, resulting in new trends for international property investment in the world’s largest single market.

In some cases, the currency swings were instant incentives, acting as cues to push through current deals as quickly as possible. In others, the changes took the form of fiscal nudges, simple reminders of the value that’s been prevalent in some currencies for well over six months.

Changing values of worldwide currencies have also created property investment opportunities within the single currency market itself. For some property types in certain countries, the withdrawal of non-EU buyers is creating opportunities for European investors buying with the euro.
