However with careful selection we have seen a 48% surge in property purchases in Spain since we purchased (ref: National Institute of Statistics), a 21% rise in detached vacation villas in Phuket (ref: Ministry of Interior Phuket, Thailand) and a 14% rise in property process in Bali (ref: Bank of Indonesia) as a few examples of our success.
