115: What Effect Does the Olympics Have on Host City Property Markets?

Did you know that the ‘Olympic fever’ goes beyond the fans’ hype and excitement for the event?

For an occasion that happens only every four years with painstaking preparations made prior, it’s expected for the Olympics to have a long-lasting impact on people’s lives, especially those who are in the host city. 

And it’s not only sports fans who feel the effects.

With this ‘fever’ taking the host city by storm, the property market is just as affected, and in more ways than one. 

In this episode, we address the Olympic excitement experienced by property investors. We dive into how the Olympics drive property prices in host cities. We also look at whether or not you should buy a property in the Olympic host city.
