My Biggest Real Estate Investment Failure? Details Available Here
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.
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.
