Have property price falls in speculative markets been overdone?

    Is there an argument that some of the property price falls in more speculative markets may have been overdone? Some of the smaller countries which recently joined the European Union were expected to benefit from increased funding but this seems to have been negated due to currency and EU economy woes. Is it time to revisit some of the more speculative markets with a long-term investment strategy?

    As with any investment market, property prices will overreact on the upside and the downside depending upon the economic outlook at the time. If you believe the market has been oversold and offers good value in the longer term then you should give strong consideration to building up some exposure. Whether you invest in a number of tranches as opposed to all in one go will be another consideration.

    Personally I think there is further downside in the mainland European property market in the short term but longer term there is good value. Perhaps now is the time to start slowly building up exposure?

    Speculative markets are always hardest hit in times of trouble although on the flip-side of the coin they do benefit from buoyant worldwide property markets. As a consequence there are many opportunities to benefit from oversold and overbought positions - it is just a matter of timing and picking the right market. This may sound very easy but it isn’t!
