Strong Showing for Germany; Emerging Markets Shift

For the first time since the question was first asked, two German cities are included among the top five global cities: Berlin in third place, falling from second last year, and Frankfurt, making this list for the first time.

The top 3 have shifted places, Los Angeles remained on 4th while Frankfurt made top 5 for the first time coming from #13 last year.
1.London (#3 last year)
2.New York (#1 last year)
3.Berlin (#2 last year)
4.Los Angeles (#4 last year)
5.Frankfurt (#13 last year)

Looking at the cost side of property investments in these cities, Berlin is still by far the best bargain as property prices still have not caught up with other major cities.
