Reasons for buying overseas
It is important to consider your main objective for purchasing an overseas property.
Some of our clients purchase their dream home as either a second home. Making such an important decision needs careful consideration.
Clients also like to purchase an overseas property as a retirement home for the winter months.
Many clients purchase a property overseas to let for a percentage of the year. Our Overseas team can assist you to maximise your earnings in your perfect property.
If you are also planning to use the property yourself, chances are you will want to be there in the peak months, which naturally limits your rental income during this time.
Rental for the overseas market is typically seasonal. You can generate extremely high yields in the summer months, with less return during the winter.
Making the right choice
Each country has different legislations, taxes and laws (especially surrounding the lettings side), so it’s always advisable to speak to one of our trained representatives who has valuable experience in this particular area.
How to choose my destination
Experience tells us that most clients come to us with a preconceived idea of the destination where they want to make their purchase. It’s our role to walk you through in detail all the advantages and disadvantages of that destination, and in some cases, offer an alternative location that you may not have considered.
New destinations vs tried and tested
Our advice; is go where the main airlines are flying, and purchase in the most established areas.
Do your research
It’s surprising to note how many people purchase overseas, without researching the destination.
Whatever your reason, it is always advised to have visited the location youare thinking about buying in.

We pride ourselves on the personal support we provide for the duration of the entire process, understanding the importance of client care and your peace of mind. We know that it is a big decision to purchase a property overseas, which is why we’re dedicated to ensuring you feel at ease throughout.
