Far beyond the allure of its gourmet food and romantic walks around the Eiffel Tower, the charisma of Paris attracts globetrotters the world over for being a mecca of rich culture, history and internationalism—and its investment opportunities reflect it.

Our most recent report on residential properties in Paris indicates a strong market outlook with the number of property sales rising by 17 percent year-over-year. Compared to sales prices in the previous year, the amount per square foot has and will continue to grow this year due to positive economic conditions, low-level interest rates and increasing demand from international investors.

With its enchanting canals, rich artistic heritage and elaborate cycling paths, it’s no surprise Amsterdam often takes the cake as one of the world’s most livable cities. The capital may have risen to worldwide acclaim as early as the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, but Engel & Völkers’ most recent market report proves the city's heyday is yet to come.

According to the report, in the first quarter of 2018, residential property prices in Amsterdam rose by approximately 14 percent year-over-year, largely due to the increasingly scarce availability of on-the-market properties in the luxury real estate market.

Fairytales do exist—at least in Lower Austria. Feast your eyes on the glorious castle Silbererschlössl, now exclusively on the market with Engel & Völkers Vienna. Silbererschlössl meets all criteria when it comes to the unnegotiable elements one would expect in a dream castle. A rich history? Check. Timeless architectural features? Check. Lancets, turrets and stained glass? Check, check and check.

Beyond these priceless features, however, Silbererschlössl is infinitely more special for one thing: its location. Built approximately 900 meters above sea level, the structure is nestled in the mountainous Semmering Pass. This idyllic region located an hour from Vienna has been a sought-after destination for the

Tucked away in the Le Marais neighborhood of Paris, you’ll find a unique store where blackened and polished steel caps typically used to seal the city’s sewer pipes adorn the walls and act as shelving units. Similarly, in Singapore, thousands of displaced coconut fibers hang from a store ceiling, simulating a meadow of dried grass flipped upside down. In New York City, a shop displays old New York Times papers that have been stacked, bound and put up against its every wall and counter. For Australian beauty product brand Aesop, all these architectural designs defy the norm against most other retail brands and uphold one tenant: total atmospheric emersion in each global location.

When it comes to Spain’s Balearic Islands, glamorous Ibiza and Majorca usually steal the spotlight as its shining stars—but they should take note of their less conspicuous neighbor Menorca, which has quickly become a hotbed attracting international visitors and permanent residents alike. According to Engel & Völkers’ latest report, residential property prices have risen by approximately 15% across the island in the last two years. Paired with a noticeably increased demand for second homes and an extremely limited number of properties on the market, Menorca is sure to give its historically more trendy neighbors a run for their money.

When you're on the hunt for a new home, the town over might have some nice condos, Craftsmen or Colonials for sale, but on-the-market cultural heritage sites are much harder to come by. Located in Elewijt, Belgium, a castle once owned by 17th-century master Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens is currently listed by Engel & Völkers Mechelen, and it's oozing with all the priceless stonework, elaborate fireplaces and art history imaginable.

Dating back to 1304 and originally known as Castle Het Steen, Rubens lived in this home with his second wife Helena Fourment for the last five years of his life from 1635-1640. He redesigned the entire castle in a Flemish Renaissance style, after which the castle became known as Rubens

In recent years, buyers in this global capital of fashion and design have hesitated due to economic recession, but the number of transactions in the first quarter of 2017 evidenced a hopeful outlook, rising by 13.8 percent over the same period in the previous year.
