Investing in property overseas: work with reliable, hands-on CIPS real estate agents
27 januari 2023

Do you want to buy a second home abroad? Or do you like the idea of ​​investing in property overseas?

Either way, you will first need to dive into the nuts and bolts of buying overseas property. Whether you plan on spending your winters elsewhere or making extra money through rental income, you should familiarize yourself with the options. It's worth the effort, though — foreign real estate is a great investment.

But only if you avoid the many, many pitfalls on the road that stretches out in front of you. What's a good location in your country of choice? What rules and regulations should you consider? How to find reliable parties to work with?

Want to buy property overseas? Opt for a CIPS agency!

To make sure your foreign real estate investment is profitable, you should avoid those who take advantage of the ignorant.
