The report shows the top 20 countries in terms of number of purchases and also gives the average spend of each nationality. Great Britain comes top in number of purchases with 11,316, with France in a distant second place (6,778) and Russia third (6,555). Danes spent the most per purchase with an average spend of 210,377 euros, ahead of Norway in second place (200,678 euros) and the Netherlands in third (199.095 euros). The rest of the data can be found in the table below. June 21, 2013 at 2:59 pm #112600 AnonymousParticipant This comes as a big surprise. According to the registry figures the British were just around 4,000 buyers last year, not 11,000. A much bigger market then, though they spend less than others.

That’s probably because they got slaughtered buying earlier. Poms love bubbles. Then others come and get the bargains 🙂 June 22, 2013 at 1:06 am #112759 The AustralianParticipant I’d love to see stats for WHERE foreigners buy the most. June 22, 2013 at 1:12 am #112760 The AustralianParticipant Not even the stats can they do accurately? Germany should be 4th in the left bottom corner tab. Belgium 5th.
