New York is the top market for real estate investment for the fourth year in a row – but London is closing the gap with Gotham as foreign investors pile in.

Global property investment grew 17.2 percent to $788 billion in the year through June, according to a new Cushman & Wakefield report cited by CNBC. Real property investment in New York accounted for $55.4 billion – or 7 percent – of the total during that period.

However, when it comes to cross-border investments in property, London is top dog, bringing in 14.1 percent of international capital, CNBC reported. New York attracted just 4.9 percent of foreign investment.

Overseas money largely accounts for the 40 percent rise in total foreign and domestic investment in London real estate to $47.2 billion. [CNBC]Tom DiChristopher

    We should always check what is happening in the market before doing any investment. We could make the decision based on market status.

    Though a good thing about real estate it that this is a long term investment you will not be affected immediately of any issue on the market.

    Williamsville is one place that is good to invest with.
