KNOCK-DOWN prop­erty prices in south­ern Eu­ro­zone coun­tries con­tinue to at­tract prop­er­ty­buy­ers from the UK, with in­ter­est in Spain, Italy, Por­tu­gal and Greece get­ting no­tice­ably stronger dur­ing the sec­ond quar­ter of the year.

De­mand for in­for­ma­tion about for­eign prop­erty rose 36 per cent year-on-year for the three months to the end of June, ac­cord­ing to the most re­cent Over­seas Guides Com­pany Quar­terly In­dex, which mea­sures in­ter­est in des­ti­na­tions pop­u­lar with sec­ond home­own­ers and ex­pats.

“The euro’s con­tin­ued strength hasn’t put Bri­tish buy­ers off tap­ping into some very at­trac­tive prop­erty prices,said Richard Way, Edi­tor at The Over­seas Guides Com­pany.
