The overall growth and decline of individual world markets in the real estate sector during 2009 provided excellent insight for predicting the expansion of letting markets during the coming year. The strongest activity for increases was found in the lettings markets, where continued favourable outlooks are expected in the majority of world markets.

Countries that fared the worst during 2009 saw only slight declines, where the significance was low in comparison to the previous year’s decline. This factor alone offers a positive light with the knowledge that the worst of the crisis in the world real estate market appears to be entering the light of recovery.

Whether 2010 offers extensive overall improvements in comparison to 2009 still remains to be seen, yet investor confidence is growing as market rebounds offer positive expectations. Sustainable markets that were experiencing positive growth prior to 2007 have remained the favourite contenders for investors planning to enter buy-to-let markets in 2010.

Turkey, Brazil and Hong Kong are a selection of the countries that have experienced the strongest rental growth markets. The strongest growth in emerging markets was centred in locations where economic development has not been predominantly within the construction and tourism sectors.

The UK and Australia did not see any significant growth in the letting market during 2009. These markets have remained relatively stable, with no significant growth or losses throughout the year. The overall stability of the Australian market throughout the worldwide real estate downturn is expected to continue, while the UK appears to be in a recovery phase from its recent downturn.

European countries such as Spain, France and Ireland have fared the worst in the lettings sector, along with the US and Japan, yet confidence is increasing for market growth during 2010. General overall improvements on 2009 levels are expected to be seen over the coming year in the majority of worldwide markets.

Buy-to-let investors planning to purchase in 2010 should consider the market growth factors from the past year as an indication for the forthcoming expansion or contraction of each given market. Turkey and Brazil both present excellent opportunities for both real estate investments and rental returns in the emerging market sector.

While the UK has faced a sluggish growth in the letting sector, it has also been one of Europe’s top performers, along with Poland, for investment growth. Germany and Spain have been positioned at the lowest rungs on the European property ladder for investor interest; however both markets are expected to improve slightly in the coming year.
