London, UK (PRWEB) January 20, 2008
Bulgaria, The 'Land of the Roses', has consolidated its consistently strong position in TheMoveChannel.com's 'Top of the Props' chart for December...
2007 was a banner year for Bulgaria, with the country topping the worldwide table for house price growth. According to the Global Property Guide, figures at the end of September 2007 showed house prices had risen by 30.6%. This is a fantastic return for a country still considered to be an emerging market, and when considered in comparison to the UK's meager rise of 9.7%, it's clear why investors are flocking to Bulgaria.
The tussle between France and Spain continued, with France ousting Italy from the number one spot again. Thailand and Morocco shot up 3 and 5 places respectively, but the most impressive rise of the month came from Argentina, which jumped 16 places to number 14.
