Global Property Investing

Here's My Four-Pronged Approach To International Property Investing

April 29, 2011, Panama City, Panama:Every portfolio should be diversified to include foreign property investment. Here’s a proven four-pronged approach to international property investing, and what you need to know about each aspect.

Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,

Every successful investment consultant or experienced investor has a method to his success. An approach that fits no matter which market or situation you're in.

To make money in global real estate, I look for opportunities that fall into one of these four categories:

1. Buying Wholesale

This is buying at a price below what the property would sell for to the general public, with the opportunity then to sell on (that is, to flip) to the general public at some key point in the future.


How To Retire Overseas

Two Reasons You Can't Afford Not To Retire Overseas

April 28, 2011 Bogota, Colombia: The biggest perceived hurdle for deciding where to move overseas is often budget. However, you control your cost of living, at least within broad ranges. Bottom line, it is possible to live for very little many places around this planet. Motivation and research can be the most important factors involved in achieving your dream retirement.

Dear Overseas Opportunity Letter Reader,

Your retirement nest egg has been marginalized, and you're thinking there's no way you could afford to retire overseas.

This is probably the most-often-given reason for why someone who's interested in the idea of launching a new life in a new country hesitates or even abandons the idea altogether. And it's the least valid. Here's the truth: You can't afford not to retire overseas.


Retire To Granada or Leon, Nicaragua

Why I'm Long Nicaragua

April 27, 2011, Granada, Nicaragua: Despite its troubled political situation, Nicaragua remains a top overseas retirement haven, thanks to its welcoming people, its new program of benefits for foreign residents, its interesting history, its beautiful countryside, its charming colonial cities, and its low cost of living.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

Retiring overseas may be a more accepted-by-the-mainstream idea today than it was a quarter-century ago when I began covering this beat...but retiring to Nicaragua?


Retire To Colonial El Retiro, Colombia

Escape To El Retiro

April 26, 2011, El Retiro, Colombia: Colonial El Retiro, Colombia, is a charming mountain town that has managed to remain a world apart and offers everything the retiree would need to enjoy a pleasant, comfortable retirement overseas.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

"I imagine this would be a nice place to settle in to for retirement," Lief mused as we meandered closer toward the main square.
