Global Property Summit: Our Expert Advice On Investing Overseas

Best Places To Buy Property In 2018

Last month, New Zealand announced that, going forward, foreign speculators would be banned from purchasing houses in the country. In the U.K., similar restrictions are currently being discussed.

As you consider buying a new home or investment property overseas, should you be worried that your options are decreasing?

Not really.

In the case of New Zealand, the new restriction applies only to existing property. A foreign investor can still buy land or Kiwi property to be built at a future date. And, this move doesn’t affect the rights of foreign residents living in the country. According to CNN Money, only 60% of Kiwis own their homes today, compared with 75% in 1992. The whole point of the new regulation is to tip the market in favor of first-time, local buyers.

Most countries have some level of building restriction in place. In Panama, you can’t build within 22 meters of the high-tide line. In Bali, Indonesia, it’s not permitted to build higher than a coconut tree—15 meters is the designated coconut-tree height. These kinds of laws exist for everyone—irrespective of nationality or residency status.

The good news is, whether you’re looking for a full-time home, a pure real estate investment opportunity, or a property where you plan to spend some time and earn rental income when you’re not in town, your options overseas are many. And, in most of the markets we recommend, you don’t have to worry about restrictions on foreign ownership.

At our 2018 Global Property Summit, we’ll introduce you to places where foreign buyers are welcome—both into the marketplace and into the local community—and where the process is straightforward…

That said, you’re still dealing in a foreign country. If you’re buying in Latin America, for example, your contract will likely be in Spanish. If buying land or an older property, establishing title to that property may take longer than you’d typically expect.

I say all this not to scare you… but prepare you. This is exactly why our Global Property Summit exists.

We want to help you figure out not only which opportunity fits you best… but also introduce you to the right contacts who can walk you through a smooth and secure purchase.

If you’re thinking you maybe need to hold off till you’ve racked up more savings, let me remind you here that you don’t need a whole lot to get started…

If you have only US$1,000 to spare today, you could stake your claim to a private-community lot in Belize… followed by monthly, interest-free payments of US$500…

Or, for just under US$50,000, you could own an acre of pristine, white-sand beach in Brazil…

And if you dream of romantic Europe, then you could own right now in some parts of southern France on a budget of as little as 30,000 to 40,000 euros (that is, about US$50,000)…

These are the kinds of opportunities Lief Simon, Lee Harrison, and their team of global real estate experts will bring to the table, next March 14–16, right here in Panama City.

No matter how much cash you have in reserve, you have options. Options that can allow you to:

  • Earn an income abroad…
  • Enjoy the security of a hard asset…
  • Cash in on the agriculture boom…
  • Store your wealth privately…
  • Open the door to overseas residency…

This can all be yours… once you take that first step. Join us this March in Panama City and we’ll help you secure your dream property overseas.
