12 Reasons To Buy Real Estate Overseas
March 6, 2014, Panama City, Panama: An investment in real estate overseas is the best investment you could make in today’s global market climate.Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
Buying a piece of property in another country is a good strategy for diversifying your investment portfolio, but it's much more than that, too.
This isn't like investing in a stock. You don't buy a beachfront lot or a rental condo overseas and then set it on a shelf, as it were, to wait for its value to increase. An investment in foreign real estate requires active and ongoing management and administration, including visits to the property and establishing an infrastructure of support on the ground in the place where the property is located.
The result is that, while you're diversifying your portfolio and potentially increasing your net worth, you're also reinventing your life. I'd say that this, in fact, is the real upside to foreign real estate as an investment class.
