Budapest Posts Fastest Residential Property Price Growth In Europe
Budapest shows the highest 12-month residential property price growth in Europe, while ranking behind only Xiʼan (China) and Ahmedabad (India) among 150 cities on the world stage, according to property services company Knight Frankʼs report entitled "Global Residential Cities Index - Q3 2018."
