Poland the latest property hotspot
Portugal's economic woes have put off would-be property hunters, a survey by property company Rightmove and foreign exchange company Moneycorp found.
But internet searches for some areas in Poland soared by almost 60% in August, with German and French properties also attracting a lot of interest.
Spain still remains the country for which there are the most property searches, followed by France, America and Italy.
Overall, there was an increase in interest in property worldwide in August, with South Africa's Western Cape and the American state of Florida featuring among the high risers.
