小编摘要:《财富》盘点去年房价涨幅最大的十个国家和地区,其中,香港高居榜首,中国内地房价涨幅在全球排名第四。

香港楼市

香港
Hong Kong
年增幅:20.1%
Annual increase:20.1%
中国内地的巨富们正在一窝蜂地拥向香港。这并非由于香港是世界商业和贸易中心,而是由于香港拥有世界最受欢迎房地产。
Uber-rich Mainland Chinese business owners have been flocking to Hong Kong, and it's not just because it's the world's business and trade center. It also has some of the world's most sought-after real estate.
由于香港只有426平方英里,人多地少,因此需求相对较大,而供给紧张 。这就解释了为什么去年香港的房价要比世界其他国家和地区增长得更快。这也使购买这些昂贵住房的借贷成本降到了创纪录的新低。自从2008年12月以来,香港的基准利率一直在20年来最低的0.5%左右徘徊。
While demand is relatively high, supply is tight, given that this densely populated region spans only about 426 square miles. That explains why prices have risen faster than other country in the world in the past year. It also helps that borrowing costs to pay for these super-expensive homes is at record lows. Since December 2008, the base interest rate has hovered at a two-decade low of 0.5%.
但为了抗击通胀,香港政府一直在试图给房地产市场降温。去年11月,官方采取了最严厉的调控房市的举措,对两年之内被转售的房地产加征了最高15%的交易附加费,并且提高了高端地产交易的首付限额。
But Hong Kong's government has been trying to quiet the real estate party, as part of its ongoing effort to fight inflation. In November, officials took its toughest steps by imposing an additional transaction fee of up to 15% on properties that are resold within two years. They have also required higher down payments for high-end home purchases.
拉脱维亚
Latvia
年增幅:16.9%
Annual increase:16.9%
想成为欧盟的居民吗?那就在这个波罗的海小国买套房子吧。
Want to become a resident of the European Union? Just buy property in this Baltic State.
在全球经济危机期间,拉脱维亚的房价是全世界跌幅最大的,达到了令人难以置信的70%。不过现在该国的房价已经有了很大的反弹,这在一定程度上要归功于拉脱维亚2010年7月通过的一项新法案。该法案规定,如果非欧盟公民购买了价值70000欧元(约为93000美元)以上的房地产,或者在该国投资经商,就可以获得欧盟居留权。
During the global recession, Latvia saw the world's largest fall in home prices, dropping an incredible 70%. But the market has bounced back in a big way, partly driven by a fairly new law (effective July 2010) that gives EU residency rights to non-EU citizens who buy property worth at least 70,000 euros (or $93,000) or invest in a business here.
这个法案并不意味着在拉脱维亚买了房的外国投资者可以在欧洲其他国家工作。不过这些房主却可以自由往来欧盟的申根(Schengen)地区。申根地区包括了德国和希腊等25个欧盟成员国。
That doesn't mean foreign investors are permitted to work in the rest of Europe. However, property owners can roam freely within Germany, Greece and 23 other countries that make up the EU's Schengen area.
以色列
Israel
年增幅:16.2%
Annual increase:16.2%
别去美国南塔基特岛了,去以色列度假吧。
Skip Nantucket. Let's vacation in Israel.
以色列已经成了世界最热门的房地产市场之一。从特拉维夫海滩的高楼大厦,到耶路撒冷市中心,以色列的房地产需求在很大程度上是由从北非和欧洲来此度假的犹太人带动起来的。和其他增长强劲的房地产市场一样,以色列的房地产市场也是由于房产供给的短缺和利率的创纪录新低而被炒得火热。
Israel has become one of the hottest real estate markets in the world. From Tel Aviv's beachside high-rise condos to the heart of Jerusalem, much of the demand has been coming from North American and European Jews in search of vacation homes. Similar to many other robust real estate markets, Israel's housing market is fueled by a shortage of properties and record low interest rates.
到目前为止,以色列并未遭受像美国和欧洲部分国家那样的房地产崩盘,这主要是由于在2008年之前,以色列未曾经历过信贷激增。但这并不表示以色列政府不担心房地产崩盘的可能。以色列政府一直在试图通过提高借贷成本、对某些贷款施加更严格的控制等方式,引导房地产市场实现软着陆。
So far, Israel has dodged a housing market crash like the ones in the U.S. and parts of Europe mostly because it didn't experience the same credit booms in the years leading up to 2008. But that doesn't mean Israel's government isn't worried about it. Officials have been trying to bring the market boom to a soft landing by raising borrowing costs and putting tighter restrictions on some loans.
