After an extended stay in Paris topped off by the most enjoyable Christmas season Lief and I can remember, we return to Panama recharged and ready to get back to business.
Where will your time and money be best rewarded in 2024?
My team and I have placed our bets.
We unveiled our picks for the best places in the world to live or retire overseas right now during last week’s “Top 13 Retirement Havens Webinar.”
What if you’re interested in making money while reinventing your life across borders? I know I am.
That is, which markets are primed for profit in 2024?
More on where I recommend you diversify your investment portfolio this year in a moment.
Before we dive into 2024, let’s take a look at where Live And Invest Overseas readers made money in 2023.
Guaranteed Double-Digit Returns In Two Years—
Making Money While Doing Good In My #1 Market
This investment in Panama’s exploding middle class has been one of the most successful of my career. An unqualified homerun.
We’re helping one of Panama’s leading developers create quality housing for the local market. Houses are being built… owners are moving in… and investors are pocketing returns.
Last year, dozens of your fellow Live And Invest Overseas readers were so happy with returns from this exclusive opportunity that they decided to reinvest.
As we look ahead to 2024, this direct-with-the-developer play in one of Panama’s fastest-growing markets remains top of my list.
Earn $18,000 Per Year At
Panama City’s Best New Address
This new project on Calle Uruguay, in Panama City’s most exclusive neighborhood, just a block back from oceanfront Avenida Balboa where I hang my own hat when I’m in town, will be a first-class property boasting a slew of on-site luxury amenities.
We’re getting in early for less than $220,000, with the pick of the best units…
Plus Live And Invest Overseas investors get a complimentary “Spec Upgrade” package worth $10,000. Financing is available.
You can expect to see up to $18,000 a year in rental income, all managed for you by one of the country’s top hoteliers.
Euro-Chic Mountain Resort In
Boquete, Panama, is a nature lover’s paradise… with rivers for fishing and rafting… plus, mountain trails, waterfalls, and a National Park all on your doorstep.
Here you’ll find a welcoming English-speaking community, fresh spring-like weather… and a bustling small town with restaurants of nearly every nationality, and lively nightlife.
That’s why I’ve been recommending Boquete as a top option for living and investing overseas for years.
The project I’ve identified here most recently will have the feel of a high-end European, Alpine resort, with a choice of great on-site amenities including a social area, multiple restaurants, pools, and lookout decks.
The lack of quality housing has always been a challenge in Boquete. This new project will serve the demand for the booming eco-tourism market in Panama and, of course, all the retirees flocking to this flower-filled mountain retreat.
Million-Dollar Views And 5-Star Amenities At
Panama’s Best City Beach—You Save $121,000
Just 15 minutes from Panama City, hidden away on a private beach resort, this property puts us right on the powder-white sands of Panama’s Pacific coast.
It boasts million-dollar ocean views and 5-star amenities… It’s move-in ready, meaning you can start earning rental income straightaway…
And it comes at a significant $121,000 discount off the regular selling price.
No other beach community exists this close to Panama City.
This is THE best beachfront buy in all Panama right now.
Condos here have listed for up to $450,000, but we got an off-market deal that slashes the cost to $329,000.
Pay cash and your price comes down to an incredible $275,000, saving you even more.
Only a handful of units remain available in this project.

Botanical Extract Agri Deal Offers A Fast $115,000 Payout
Right now, we have a chance to get in on the supply of an in-demand botanical extract much needed by Big Pharma for a widely used dementia treatment.
The team on the ground will plant, farm, and harvest the Carlton daffodils and sell the valuable extract for you. This is a 100% turn-key play.
This is also a short-term cash flow investment with annual payouts that comes with the added benefit of a buy-back offer after just seven years.
Get in by Feb. 29 and you will be in line to receive your first payout by December 2025. Wait and it will be a full year later before your first return.
Almonds Are In The Bag!
Just Waiting For The Best Price
All managed farmlands at the almond plantations we’ve been recommending (and where dozens of Live And Invest Overseas have invested) have been harvested… and all almonds have been securely stored in the new dedicated processing facility.
This initial storage phase is crucial for ensuring the quality and integrity of the product.
The management team has been in touch with investors to say that payouts can be expected on time. Meantime, they are biding their time, waiting to sell for the best possible price. The price of almonds typically spikes after February. The developer’s strategy is to leverage these market dynamics to maximize returns.
Truffles Are Coming!
Early Finds Portend A Healthy Harvest
This year’s harvest at the truffle plantation investment opportunity we’ve recommended will take place in March. The team on the ground is fully prepared and supported by an expertly trained (and very lovable) team of dogs…
They’ll be starting with all trees owned by Live And Invest Overseas investors and expect to meet payout expectations.
The few early finds our truffle-hunting friends have dug up have been most promising…
Here’s Where We’ll Make Money In 2024
That’s where we are.
Not too shabby.
Here’s where we’re going…
Center of our radar this new year are these hot markets…
Northern Cyprus—The Med’s Best-Kept Secret
We continue to bring you exclusive off-market deals in this booming Mediterranean island market.
Just recently Investment Director Lief Simon shared a flash deal allowing our readers to snap up a luxury penthouse next to a private beach for just $165,000.
The response to this one-of-a-kind opportunity was overwhelming.
I’m talking ready-to-move-into, ocean-view, with a slew of luxury amenities, including an indoor pool, an outdoor pool, landscaped gardens, gym, spa, tennis court, and more… plus great dining options.
The developer is projecting an 8% net ROI with everything managed for you.
One Northern Cyprus project we shared with readers back in 2021 has seen a massive 60% jump in value. Those who got in early are already looking at a £45,000 increase in their property values (that’s about $56,800).
Another reader who acted on an earlier deal has already sold his property for a nice £19,000 profit in just two years.
That’s a 32% gain… in his pocket. Property prices in Northern Cyprus continue on the rise. I predict we’ll see further strong capital appreciation this year… alongside rental income.
Montenegro—The World’s Next Jetset Escape
We remain focused on this small European gem that Forbes likens to Monaco and Robb Report has named “The Mediterranean’s New Jet Set Hotspot.”
With stunning fjords and a pristine landscape overlooking the same stretch of water as Italy, the ultra-wealthy have identified Montenegro as a yachting paradise.
Early investors who got in on the first project we brought to your attention here are now sitting on completed, ready-to-rent units.
They were invited to a grand opening in June, and I’m happy to report that the feedback was all positive with happy investors enjoying a warm welcome, good food, first-class amenities, and stunning views from the property…
The same developer brought us another project just 12 minutes from an exclusive marina with waterfront residences, restaurants, luxury shopping, and hotels… and just 7 minutes from an international airport.
A number of units remain available under an exclusive deal allowing you a chance to secure your home here with just a 30% down payment and 36 interest-free monthly installments. I’m right now pinning down details on the next project we want to bring to your attention in this paradise market. Its right on the waterfront.
Spain—Outsized Rental Demand
Later this month Lief Simon will host a free webinar where you’ll get the inside track on a new investment opportunity in Madrid.
This will be a chance to profit from the outsized demand for quality affordable rental accommodation from a booming local professional market and an outsized student population.
The developer tells us properties here rent in days, such is the demand. We’re looking at a projected 7% net annual ROI with everything managed for you fully turn-key.
Portugal—Europe’s Best Beaches
Just weeks ago we brought you a massive €49,900 savings on your own beach home along Portugal’s Algarve coast. This comes from a developer I have worked with for many years now.
Portugal was named “Europe’s Leading Destination 2023” at the World Travel Awards…
And the Algarve won out as “Europe’s Best Beach Destination.”
The real estate market reflects these sentiments.
According to recent research, foreign-buyer favorites Lisbon and the Algarve are Portugal’s property price growth hot spots. Experts predict home prices in Portugal to rise by 8.7% in 2024… despite an end to the Golden Visa era.
Our property in Praia da Luz (near Lagos) will be the region’s first luxury residential condominium.
The property is fully supported by in-house management, concierge services, an owner’s lounge, a gym, a sauna, an indoor heated pool, and an outdoor pool… along with private gardens where you can relax when you are not at the beach.
The homes will have underfloor heating, A+ energy rating, high quality finishes, and expansive sea views.
Developer financing is available, and you can secure your unit with just €10k down.

More Markets On My Radar For 2024
This new year I’ll also be on the ground in…
I was the first to herald Costa Rica as a top opportunity for foreign investors and retirees.
That was in 1985.
Time to take a fresh look. My son Jackson Simon and his dad Lief will be putting boots on the ground on this country’s Pacific coast soon…
Cheap property and lifestyle on the Med in some of the most historically rich settings in Europe that nobody talks about.
The bargains are almost too good to believe…
This little-understood but natural resource rich, economically thriving, and outward-looking country is about to break out onto the world stage.
You and I are going to take our positions first.
Join Us Jan. 23 To Take Your Position To Profit
More immediate term we want to direct your attention to a crisis opportunity my investment team has been watching develop for some time.
I’m talking about Europe’s outsized local housing demand.
In many places across Europe the lack of affordable rental property for young professionals and students has reached critical levels. We’re looking at a turn-key project in England, supported by government initiatives, that offers a fast and fixed 8% annual ROI, straight into your bank account—over a full 25 years.
The entry price is low, and everything will be managed for you.
Also on the table is student accommodation in Madrid, a city desperately trying to accommodate over 350,000 students. And that’s not to mention the young professional graduates.
Again, we’ve identified an easy, turn-key income opportunity.
All allowing you to diversify safely outside the U.S. dollar and a volatile stock market.
Watch your inbox for details of the Spotlight Session Lief Simon will be hosting on Jan. 23 to lay out everything you need to know to take your position.
Happy New Year.
2024 is going to be big.
Until next time,
