Looking for Real Quality of Life?

Mon, 2016-06-13 17:50 -- admin

Before investing in real estate in another country, it is useful to have an idea of what quality of life can be expected from living there. Since 2009, one initiative, the Legatum Prosperity Index™, has taken an innovative approach to measuring the wellbeing of nations, seeking to explore prosperity not merely from a traditional, economic standpoint but also in relation to a variety of issues, such as safety and security, personal freedom, healthcare and education provision, and many more besides.

Such an index allows for a snapshot glimpse of how happy a country’s residents are and what to expect when living there. The results also make for interesting reading, and sometimes can even be surprising.

While in Lebanon, for example, 75.8% of the survey respondents stated that they could rely on others in times of need, in Germany and Portugal the numbers were even higher, at 94% and 86% respectively.

Germany in particular ranked highly overall in the 2015 index, coming in at number 14 globally in terms of prosperity, an increase on its first ranking of 16 in 2009. Germany’s score was certainly boosted by its economic performance, ranking 5th globally in the Economy sub-index, but also by many lifestyle indicators, such as health and education provision. In addition, 57.9% of respondents said that now was a good time to find a job, a healthy result when compared to 16% in Lebanon.

Portugal also ranks well globally taking 27th place globally in the 2015 index, maintaining its ranking year-on-year. In contrast to Germany, Portugal’s highest score was in the Personal Freedom sub-index, where it took 16th place globally for 2015, and it also performed highly on Safety & Security. Issues such as these are of certain relevance to real estate investors who look for the potential to build a better life in the future before investing beyond home.
