Join Us In Our 2019 Global Property Summit In Panama

Investing Overseas Can Be This Easy

If you’re looking to buy property overseas—for pure investment… for personal use… or somewhere in between—and you want to make your move before another year slips by, then there’s one event you can’t possibly miss…

Our 2019 Global Property Summit, May 22–24, at the Westin Playa Bonita Panama (more about the venue later).

This event, designed by international real estate guru Lief Simon, is your only chance this year to join us for three property-focused days as our team of experts introduces you to the best markets in the world to buy a second home… a full-time home… or invest for the short or long term in opportunities that can provide a healthy cash flow, boost your retirement nest egg, and serve as a safe diversification.

All levels of “investor” are welcome. This event is for you if:

  • You’re looking for your dream home overseas…
  • You’re interested in splitting your time between a number of places…
  • You’re already living overseas and would like to expand your portfolio into different markets…
  • You’re not going overseas (at least not any time soon) but would like to diversify your portfolio by investing in foreign markets…
  • You’re looking for passive income opportunities to bankroll your new life overseas…

In other words, if you have an interest in property—for whatever purpose—you’re welcome to the table.

Another thing to understand about this event is that “property” isn’t limited to a house or apartment. Of course, you’re going to need at least one of those if you plan to live on your property… but Lief and his team will also introduce you to current opportunities in productive land…

Over the past seven years, agricultural opportunities have become an important focus for Lief and his team. Productive land is the ultimate hard asset with the potential for long-term and even legacy yield. Depending on the project, you get to reap the benefits over decades… and so can your heirs. At this year’s Summit, you’ll hear about opportunities in teak, organic fruits, and aquaponics (three areas that have been performing well for Lief and his readers).

Joining Lief again this year is Lee Harrison, our Senior Overseas Property Correspondent. We like to call Lee an “accidental investor.”  Lee bought his first home overseas for US$62,000—purely for personal use, without any notions of capital appreciation—and sold it, just nine months later, for US$110,000.

Really, investment can be that easy.

At this 2019 Global Property Summit, Lief, Lee, and the rest of our expert team will introduce you to the places they believe are the best spots to live and invest in for a long time to come. They’ll help you:

  • Choose the country and the location that’s right for you—ideal for your overseas purchase…
  • Determine the best property for your intended lifestyle and investment goals…
  • Learn the fundamentals of buying real estate overseas safely and securely…
  • Understand how to manage an income-producing rental property when you’re not in residence…
  • Develop your own worldwide network of international property contacts and support…
  • Learn how to identify a promising market… and how to determine the amount you should spend to buy what you want…
  • Navigate markets with no multiple listing service (recognizing that this includes most of the world!)…
  • View lots of properties currently available in the world’s top property markets…
  • Obtain access to exclusive investment offerings, including turnkey yield-producing opportunities that could earn you up to 20% per year and more…
  • Connect with the most promising markets for agricultural investments, including introductions to the best current productive land plays anywhere in the world today…

You can enjoy the property of your dreams… and make a profit while living the good life. And now comes your best chance to do it this year…

Goodbye Rat Race—Hello Healthy, Active Living

Rob Burrows and Tony Lauria—two of the expats who joined us for our 2019 Live and Invest in Belize Conference last week—were both in similar circumstances just a few years back.

Life was too busy—and not in a good way.

As a management consultant in Ohio, Rob was working 60-hour weeks, mostly on the road, staying in one hotel room after another… dreaming of his next vacation in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, Tony worked for an international firm as a trainer and instructor and later in corporate sales. Caught up in the bustle of New York City life, he longed to escape to simpler, country living.Continue reading

Had Enough Of The Lists? It’s Time For Action… 

It’s that time of year when all the must-go, must-do, and must-see lists are taking over our inboxes.

For those on the quest for a new home overseas, these New Year travel lists aren’t always helpful. There’s a difference, of course, between choosing a place to vacation… and choosing that place you’re going to commit yourself to in the long term.

While you may have the vacation of a lifetime in Zimbabwe, Iran or Uzbekistan—all on Matador Network’s list of “25 places you need to travel in 2019”—I’m guessing these aren’t among the options you’re considering right now for your international move.Continue reading

Introducing Our New Live And Invest Overseas Conference

Remember, This Is Not Retirement

The bad news is there won’t be a Retire Overseas Conference in 2019.

The good news is we’re just changing the name…

For one thing, these past few years, we’ve been attracting a wider audience (with some attendees in their 20s and 30s).

But regardless of age, almost everybody we know who has taken the leap to start over in a new place tells us they’re packing in far more activities in their days than they ever had time for at home. Continue reading
