My Biggest Real Estate Investment Failure? Details Available Soon

Jan. 30, 2013, Panama City, Panama: “How To Buy Real Estate Overseas” is Kathleen Peddicord’s newest book, available in bookstores starting in April 2013.

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

In today's mail arrived a thick package. Inside were the page proofs for my new book, "How To Buy Real Estate Overseas," ready for final review and sign-off.

how to buy real estate overseas

This book is the culmination of nearly 30 years' experience covering this beat and about 15 years' experience buying and selling real estate around the world, mostly successfully and for profit, sometimes not, and one time with disastrous results (yes, in this tell-all guide, I share the details of my biggest real estate investment failure).

I could not have written this global property adventure memoir without the help of my husband, Lief Simon. Lief has been my number cruncher, tax advisor, currency converter, spreadsheet guru, and partner for every overseas real estate investment I've made throughout my career.

With one exception--the accidental developer experience I found myself involved with a few years before I met Lief, on the south Pacific coast of Nicaragua. For that adventure, I have Bill Bonner and Mark Ford to thank, and I do.

In the pages of this new book, I also share stories of the overseas real estate adventures of friends with personal experience living, buying, and selling in the countries I feature, especially Paul Terhorst, who gives brilliant insights into why Argentina is the lovable basket case it is, and Lee Harrison, Lucy Culpepper, Ann Kuffner, Wendy Justice, and Coley Hudgins.

The book will hit bookstores and be available for purchase online starting in April. Meantime, you can order a pre-release copy of "How To Buy Real Estate Overseas" on Amazon now for just US$15.48 (that's 38% off the release price).

Over the coming weeks, in advance of the book's appearance in bookstores across America and online wherever e-books are sold, I'll share tease and tempt you (I hope) into wasting no time ordering your copy!

More soon.

Readers Say

"I have to say that you seem to dig deeper into the feel of a particular place and to do comparative analysis between alternative places. Your approach is more sophisticated and thoughtful and therefore more useful than that of other information sources covering these same subjects."

— John W., United States


"I particularly appreciated your information today about the joys (?) of international rental property. What I admire is your honest, tell-it-like-it-is approach. A lot of people have been hurt by nothing but glowing reports about offshore living from various sources. Your honest, direct approach is a real service."

— Arlean K., United States
