Continuing our new series, experts from around the world share their advice on the top places to invest overseas.
There are numerous factors to consider when investing overseas: exchange rates, long-term rental potential and property price growth. But thousands of Brits buy abroad every year. Some simply want a better quality of life, others are looking for a bolthole in the sun, while the more adventurous might rescue an abandoned French chateau.
If you are thinking of buying overseas, consider all your options carefully. The old adage of “do your research” has never been truer. Make sure you have a team of advisors on board, who can lead you through the process.
And trust your instincts at all times. If something feels too good to be true, then think twice about it. Seasoned buyers don’t just make snap decisions on the ground. They return to the UK, run the numbers and decide whether the property is right in the short, medium and long-term.
