SARASOTA…The BEST place to buy 2nd home in Western World

Posted by Marcia Salkin in Uncategorized 27 Jul 2010

Reports show that Sarasota Florida is the best buy in the Western World!

The report, published today in ranks popular resort and second home locations around the world reveals the cheapest western holiday home destination is Sarasota, Florida, which is little surprise given how much the market has fallen over the past two years and the number of agents currently selling distressed property to foreigners in the sunshine state.

Among the surprises: Apartments in Warsaw, Poland are selling for higher prices than Dubai.

Manhattan and Paris are running neck in neck, but Moscow makes them both look cheap. Little wonder that the Russians are on an international buying spree, with Hong Kong residents close behind them. With China now officially the hottest residential market in the world, US properties are practically an impulse buy.

International estate agency group Savills has published a list of best-value destinations in 35 countries across the globe.
