The 2007 spend for British overseas property investors was 99,200 on average an increase of 1% on the average spend in 2006 of 98,166.

British overseas property investors spent the lion's share of their investment capital on second homes in Spain, which came top of the list.

In 2007, Investment into the Spanish property market by British overseas property investors accounted for more than 25% of the total capital spent on overseas property. British investors still seem to be stuck on the traditional property markets as French property came in second place again with a total of 17%, and property in the USA came in third place with a 9.7%, an increment of 2.2% against 2006.

While there are currently many different emerging markets to invest your capital for growth and rental income, British investors do seem to be clinging to the potentially less profitable and less dynamic mature property markets within western Europe and the U.S.

However, even if the biggest share of the British investment capital is taken by those more mature consolidated markets, some new emerging markets are finally starting to show up on the radar. Bulgaria is a good example, taking a 6% market share from British overseas property investment spend.

In 5th place is property in Morocco, winning a market share of 4.9% for 2007, closely followed by Dubai's property market with a share of 4.8%. Placed after these two more emerging investment property investment locations, are the more traditional second home markets such as Italy, Portugal and Cyprus holding 3.7%, 3.6% and 2.9% of the market share respectively. All of these property investment locations have risen in popularity year on year. Turkey ranked in tenth place with a total market share of the British overseas property investor of 2%.

With property markets around the globe providing growth, income and security of investment, UK property investors are finally starting to see the light and not follow the crowd.
