Coldwell Banker Real Estate Issues International Housing Report

Identifies Average Home Listing Price in 30 Countries and More Than 60 Markets

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - Jul 13, 2011) - Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC today released a report on international housing markets, which compares similar four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes in 30 countries and more than 60 markets outside the United States and Canada.

Among the more affluent markets in the report is Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, located just four miles from the center of Paris and is the hometown of Nicolas Sarkozy, the current President of the French Republic. The city also serves as the headquarters for the global edition of The New York Times newspaper, The International Herald Tribune. A continent away in the opposite hemisphere, the tourist city of Salinas, Ecuador, is one of the many markets offering great affordability. It is also known for its proximity to the Pacific Ocean and year-round temperatures averaging 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

"As one of the world's premier international real estate companies, Coldwell Banker has the pulse on what is happening in various global markets," said Budge Huskey, president and chief operating officer, Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC. "Increasingly we have seen that buyers are expanding their horizons when it comes to the number of countries under consideration for their investment."

In addition to Salinas and Neuilly-sur-Seine, the Coldwell Banker report highlights some of the world's most prominent cities, full of fun trivia and charming local facts:

  • Paris, France, has been ranked as one of the top three European cities of the future by The Financial Times and produces more than one fourth of France's total gross domestic product.
  • Madrid, Spain, is the third largest city in the European Union and is considered the major financial center of Southern Europe.
  • Rome is the capital and most populated city of Italy and has been ranked as one of the world's 15 most important cities.
