London, UK (PRWEB) February 12, 2008
Interest in Portugal from visitors to TheMoveChannel.com has soared over the last month, with the stunning Iberian paradise crashing into the top ten to take the number 5 slot in our 'Top of the Props' chart.
After steady growth in 2007, 2008 is expected to bring a healthy 12% growth to Portugal's property market, and with the double tax arrangements between the UK and Portugal, buying property has never been so simple for overseas investors.
There was a surprise at the top of the chart, with the top four creating a situation that has never been seen before in the Top of the Props chart.
Cyprus and Brazil continued to rise steadily, but the most impressive and surprising rise of the month came from a small Country in South Eastern Europe, a place that not many investors would usually consider. However, this Country is challenging its more established neighbours with ever-rising property prices and excellent investment potential.
