Expatriate Insurance News: Overseas property searches on the rise

There appears to be an increasing number of people considering relocating abroad.

According to the latest figures from Rightmove, the number of online searches for overseas property rose by 4.8 per cent in December.

This is the opposite of the expected decline, which usually occurs around Christmas.

The US and Germany showed the highest climb in interest from overseas buyers.

Robin Wilson, head of overseas at the company, told Overseas Property Professional: "Typically we'd see a seasonal decline in search activity from November to December of around five per cent, so a positive upswing of 4.8 per cent was welcome at year end."

Mr Wilson added that things "always pick up in January" due to people's resolutions and the general negative atmosphere of winter.

Expatriates who are buying abroad in order to move out themselves, might want to look into their international health insurance to make sure they're covered.
