In global markets, recovery is underway, and investments are back on track. Here’s what we’re hearing from our Sotheby’s partners around the world.

In London, which some investors think is too expensive, core players and sovereign wealth funds are attracted to its size, liquidity and depth of markets.

Despite an uncertain political situation and concerns over France’s indebtedness, international investors still see Paris as a portfolio must-have.

Dublin is now attracting new investments as equity floods in and residential prices rise sharply.

And megaprojects are back as confidence grows in the UAE’s market.

In Dubai and Abu Dhabi, extravagant master-planned communities include luxury properties on the Dubai Waterfront and in Zayed City.

And in China, home prices showed a deceleration in gains for the first time in 14 months, providing signs that efforts to cool the property market may finally be working.
