Adelaide has reflected South Australia as a whole with its recent population boom and healthy real estate market.

Adelaide has reflected South Australia as a whole with its recent population boom and healthy real estate market.


According to a recent press release by Optimizer Capital, South Australia, on a risk adjust basis, represents one of the best property investments of the next 10 years.



Optimizer Capital reported that Singapore is currently at the top of its cycle and is showing a poor market outlook for 2012 and 2013. Real estate analysts forecast a 5 to 10 per cent drop in property prices this year.

Due to Singapore’s property prices at an all time high and rental yields being low, it is suggested that investors could be overpaying for the potential rental income.

The annual average inflation of Singapore since 1980 is about 2.1 per cent and the Consumer Price Index is on an upward trend making it likely that the cost of living will keep increasing.

This increasing cost of living has made finding a place for retirement difficult resulting in many of the countries residents to settle down in neighboring countries, such as  to stretch their retirement funds.

Investors can expect that some country’s property markets will be growing while others will be on the decline. Many investors are purchasing properties in Australia to ensure that their investments are not exposed to the risks that different countries face.
