Favourable Investment Climate for overseas investment by Indians

There has never been a better time for Indians to invest in international property markets. Due to the downturn in the Indian real estate market, investors are looking at new avenues to invest. The stability of the Indian Rupee and relaxation of rules that permit Indian residents to invest overseas have further created an investment climate favourable for international real estate.

Indians are increasingly looking for good realty investment opportunities abroad. As per the recent wealth report created by a reputed London-based real estate consulting firm, India’s high networth individuals are heavily investing in real estate in other countries; and their numbers have grown by 166% in the last 10 years. Almost 50% of all India’s UHNWI** & HNI* have foreign real estate in their portfolios, which is the highest in the world.

Indian residents are investing in international properties for appreciation in value, end use or rental earnings. The stability of the Indian Rupee and relaxation of RBI rules that permit Indian residents to invest overseas have further created an investment climate favourable for international real estate.

Austrailia, UAE, UK & US are the preferred destinations for Indian property buyers, according to property analysts. The US, UK and UAE are closest to the hearts of most Indians intending to acquire property abroad.
