Everybody knows that we are facing hard times and that the financial crisis has affected everyone, and not in a pleasant way. There are, however, people who do not seem to be worried about the recession. These people are the ones who are always seeking for luxury mansions and expensive properties. People are surprised of how easily they throw money away on luxury mansions, and how is it that nowadays, where the real estate market is knowing one of it’s darkest periods, the selling of luxury mansions is going so well.
In London, for example, the request for luxury mansions is growing, especially if they are located in the core of the city. Buyers are not only interested in living in luxury mansions, but also in renting them, so it comes as no surprise that a 6-bedroom luxury property in London was rented for no less than 40.000 ponds per month. Real estate agents are astonished by the fact that the high price of luxury mansions does not drive people away. On the contrary, the number of customers interested in luxury mansions is increasing. However, the regular buyers of luxury mansions are not regular people, too. They are rich, and mostly foreign investors, who come from the Middle-East, Russia and China. They have their reasons, though, behind purchasing luxury mansions. One of the main reason why these rich people are buying luxury mansions is to protect their fortunes, because the countries where they come from are economically destabilised, so they are looking to make investments.
Then, most buyers believe that now is the best time to purchase luxury mansions, as the economy is down and the prices have dropped dramatically. They are not hesitating thus when it comes to luxury mansions, because they feel that this is a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity, which will remain unparalleled. Then, some of the most attractive luxury mansions are the ones where celebrities or historic personalities have lived. Buyers are very fond of them, which is why the price of those luxury mansions is exorbitant. While most people do not even dream about once having a home like that, luxury mansions are on the rise, because there will always be rich people and investors who will be interested in them.
