global-edge-RUSSIAN_SUMMIT-November2010 Many overseas property agents could will and should be excited by a new event announced this week. Global Edge have partnered with AiGroup — the Russian media company behind Russia’s biggest overseas property portal (1-property.ru) — to set up and host Russian Summit, a chance for the world’s overseas property agents to learn about the Russian market, and importantly to gain contacts that will refer business in a mutually beneficial arrangement. It could well become known as an important event for the industry.

The collapse of British demand for overseas property crippled many markets, not least Dubai, Cyprus and of course Spain. The latter split into regions gives even more locations that felt the severe pain of the British-buyer exodus.

Even now demand from British buyers is at nowhere near the same levels as seen in the run up to the 2008 crash, and of the overseas property markets that are leading the recovery, Russian buyers is a common phrase that we are hearing.

Of course Russian buyers are no new phenomenon. They became a big and growingly important market in the overseas property world towards the latter part of 2007 and into 2008.

Football legend, Sir Bobby Charlton, one of the most well-known figures in English and World football was in Dubai today, to officially launch the third season of Manchester United Soccer Schools as part of the Dubai Sports City project.

Details of the new program, which is expected to be the most successful to date, were announced at the launch event, which was attended by not only Sir Bobby, but also representatives of Dubai Sports City and presenting sponsor Milo. This is the third season of MUSS skills development sessions and is set to attract over 750 boys and girls from across the region, with over 60 nationalities creating a truly multi-cultural sporting environment.

So you want to buy that villa a few metres from a golf course in a hot, exotic country and are not quite convinced why to buy…here are Golf Homes Worldwide Magazine’s ten reasons to invest in a golf property:

  1. A good investment. The lifestyle factors are important when planning a property purchase however the financial aspects are key. The benefit of purchasing on a course is that the demand for golf property remains high, providing an exit from the market at any point. Buying a property off-plan will also usually result in significant capital gain by the time the course has opened.
  2. Money earner. There is excellent holiday rental potential both in the domestic and foreign markets as the popularity of golf continues to grow. On some developments rental returns of up to 6% per annum are offered (for a set period of time after purchase).
  3. Year-round use. Buy a property in a country such as Spain, Dubai, Florida or South Africa and not only will you be able to make the most of your property all year round but you would also have the option to rent it out 365 days a year.
  4. Value for money. Compare average property prices in the UK of £200,000 to just about anywhere else in the world and you can get so much more for your money if you buy overseas. Plus, how many opportunities are there to buy on a golf complex in the UK?

Exhibitions company Homebuyer Events, which organises exhibitions for residential property investors, is considering a sale of the business, the Daily Telegraph has learnt.

It is understood that Homebuyer Events has appointed corporate finance boutique Media Mergers to advise the company on a potential sale following an unsolicited approach from a mystery buyer. Sources said the company is likely have an operating profit of around £2m and could be sold for £15m-£20m.

Homebuyer Events, which organises exhibitions in London, Manchester and Scotland, was founded by entrepreneurs Nick Clark and Michael Bridge in the early 1990s. Mr Bridge has since left the company but remains a shareholder.

Potential buyers for the company could include business-to-business publishers such as Centaur, United Business Media and Emap, according to banking sources. DMG World Media, DMGT’s exhibitions division, was also tipped as a potential acquirer.

Approximately 50pc of Homebuyer Event’s shows are dedicated to overseas property investing, which has become increasingly popular among Britons.

MORE THAN 20,000 people visited one of the UK’s biggest overseas property shows, where North Cyprus and Turkey were among the most represented locations. Around 20 firms selling property in North Cyprus and Turkey were represented in the ‘Turkish Village’ at the Homebuyer show, held at the ExCeL Centre in London’s Docklands at the weekend.

Prominent property developers on display included North Cyprus International, Noyanlar Construction, Levent Homes and Construction, Regnum and Seacliff Village. Jeff Osborne, Sales Manager of Levent Homes and Construction told the London Turkish Gazette: “We’ve had a lot of interest today. Each day of the exhibition is different.

We tend to get the more serious buyers visiting on a Friday, when they know there will be fewer people, so more time to talk to developers. Often Friday visitors have taken a day off work to come and look at the different properties and locations. Weekends tend to be busier, but also attract a lot of browsers.” Jamie Lester, Director of North Cyprus International said: “I first started looking at developing in North Cyprus during the referendum in 2004. The political climate and recent developments have shown it to be an emerging market… and it helps that it’s very beautiful.”
