Where in the world is the best seller’s market? Not here in America.

Residential property prices worldwide saw gains by an average of 4.6 percent around the globe last year, but growth was less than in 2016 when gains went up by 5.3 percent and the cities who are celebrating the most are mainly overseas in Europe, according to Mansion Global.

Notably, the data, based on Knight Frank’s Global House Price Index, shows a decreasing gap between housing markets compared to previous years.

Here’s a look at the top 10 housing markets that saw prices grow the most in 2017.
