People relocating abroad who are planning on making property investments in the nation they expatriate to ought to consider this to be a medium to long-term money-making opportunity, statements from an expert have indicated.
BuyAssociation editor Paul Collins also said that real estate investments are more likely to be successful if the country they are in has a strong rental market.
He recommended examining tenant demand at present, as well as the number of people who are visiting the region.
If tourists are renting out villas and apartments when they travel to the nation, then expatriates will be able to let out any building they purchase if this is what they wish to do, the expert argued.
Although Mr Collins admitted that choosing an overseas property to invest in requires a great deal of "personal choice", he added: "I think that there are a few things that you need to look at."
However, people planning to sell overseas accommodation may have to wait a while, with the Global Property Guide recently revealing that of the 39 nations that provide quarterly house price data, 25 reported falls in values, while only 13 posted definitive increases.
