Britons rush to sell European properties - Telegraph

Greek properties would be the hardest hit with prices falling as much as 50 per cent, according to startling estimates made by foreign currency specialists HiFX. It has seen enquires from Britons looking to sell their European homes rise by almost 200 per cent since 2008.
Its research shows that 39 per cent of Britons are looking to sell up in Greece, 34 per cent in Spain and 23 per cent in Portugal.
Mark Bodega, marketing director at HiFX, said: "As many European governments tackle their deficits, second-home owners, especially those based overseas, have become easy targets for tax increases and as a result many are selling up and returning their assets to the UK."
