More people than ever are choosing to relocate from the UK, with Australia topping the list as the most popular destination.
Australia was the clear favourite in the research compiled by international relocation company Allied Pickfords, with Spain and Cyprus a distant second and third.
Our capitals are the most popular places for immigrants to settle, with Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane high on the list.
As recently reported by Marquette Turner, whilst our property market is currently experiencing a somewhat subdued period, it is immigration that, amongst other factors, will help ensure that Australia does not experience a complete property meltdown.
The firm reported that it has recently received a surge of interest in buying Australian property, with ten per cent of all their enquiries relating to relocations down under.
So, immigration is on track to assist Australia’s property market – now we just need inflation, consumer confidence and infrastructure to fall in line, amongst the many factors that go towards making a solid, powerful and confident economy and ensure that Australian’s truly feel their fortune.
