In Australia, the average price of a house or well located unit can appreciate by nearly 100% , during a time span of 6-7 years, provided you time the markets correctly in terms of when/where/how much to invest nationwide and get out of the markets correctly as well to avoid the long stagnation. Lots of people have done it. Just out of curiosity, has anyone done this overseas ? Lots of Australians have overseas connections and for sure people can be familiar with the property market with at lease ONE other country. Instead of juggling among a handful of Australian cities over 1 mil population, should extending to ONE other country give us lots more to play with ? Several PCers have done this with US, Russian markets beautifully. If you have done it, what is your success story ? If you have not done it, what are the major hurdles ? Like to hear any comments.
