British property prices have virtually quadrupled since 1990. Great if you already own a UK home; not so great if you’re saving for your place on the ladder, as wages haven’t even doubled.

For those priced out of British property, some of our nearby countries in Western Europe offer cheaper property and investment potential. Why not consider looking abroad?

Even for current home-owners in the UK, continental European property is a tempting investment. Price increases in France, Spain and Portugal have been steadier and salaries have remained closer to housing expenses – a sign that future rises are sustainable. The data also shows that those countries have been slower to recover from the financial crisis and are still on an economic upswing just as the UK approaches Brexit with trepidation.

If you are buying a home in France, Spain or Portugal, whether for a holiday home, investment or relocation, download a guide from Property Guides. All your questions answered on the legal processes and the market, and completely free.
