Worst property markets of 2011

AN article published in the Overseas Property Professional lists the five worst places in which to invest according to Colordarcy’s managing director, Loxley McKenzie.

Cyprus comes in at number two behind the ‘number one disaster zone’, Ireland.

Even though the island is “a long-time favourite with British investors, even its biggest advocates are losing interest,” says McKenzie. “A stagnant economy and its vulnerability to the Greek crisis with two of its largest banks exposed to a total of €5 billion really doesn’t bode well.”

Cyprus is followed by Greece, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic.
