RIGHT­MOVE Over­seas say prop­erty searches for Detroit have risen by over 200 per cent over the past year.

In­creased prop­erty stock in Si­cily also gen­er­ated high search re­sults, while pop­u­lar Euro­pean hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions ex­pe­ri­enced a dip in searches.

Charles Purdy, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Smart Cur­rency Ex­change, said: “It is not a sur­prise that there is a greater in­ter­est in US prop­erty as their econ­omy seems to be on the mend.

“Ad­mit­tedly, the re­cov­ery is far from ro­bust but it is re­cov­er­ing at a faster pace than those economies to be found this side of the At­lantic. The US dol­lar has also seen some rapid move­ments. US$100,000 will cost you £3,000 less to­day than a month ago.”
