Welcome to the second issue of Foreignproperty World the Foreignproperty Newsletter – The Gateway to Global Real Estate.    

Since our last issue the growth of UK buyer interest in foreign property has increased significantly, 49% of welsh under 30’s are considering a Foreignproperty purchase according to research conducted by Oceânico Developments. Affordability and rental returns within the UK have pushed investors to look at the more attractive returns throughout Europe. The strength of the pound and euro against the Dollar has made the United States and Canada a second home paradise and the ever increasing desire to own a dream location and property remains strong in UK buyers.

Guide to Buying in Mexico

    Mexico is a location becoming increasingly popular with United States based buyers and those seeking something slightly different in their holiday or retirement homes. The process of buying in Mexico is incredibly different from buying in the United States. This guide aims to illustrate the issues involved with buying in the home of Tequila.    
    Real Estate within Mexico is either placed by the authorities into a restricted or non restricted zone. As a rule of thumb the interior is non restricted and foreigners (non Mexican citizens) can directly own property in these locations. Any land or real estate within 30 miles of Mexico’s coast or 50 miles of Mexico’s borders is considered restricted.

Guide to Buying in Portugal

    Buying property in Portugal remains popular with British Buyers. The process of buying is quite a simple one if you receive good advice and understand the basic legal and tax issues involved. Please don’t forget to search out good legal advice and never forget to seek answers and ask yourself the following four questions:    
  • Have you completed research on all aspects of the property purchase?
  • Have clear goals of purpose been set for the property?
  • Have I obtained as much advice as possible?
  • Have I been cautious in all of my actions?
        Once you have found your ideal Portuguese property it is important to familiarise yourself with the local town hall (Camara) and an independent Portuguese lawyer.

    Buying an Island by Melanie Pitman

        Watch out over the miles of clear blue sea that ends where it touches the sky. Feel the warm soft sand between your toes and listen to the sound of the breeze through the trees. But this is no ordinary beach, on any ordinary holiday, because this is your beach, your sand, and your island.    
        It is the dream of many to own their own island as a place to get away from the crowded roads and smog of city life. Your own island could be a self reliant recluse for quality time with the family or time alone on your empty beach. A number of prominent people already own islands such as Sir Richard Branson who owns Necker Island in the Caribbean.
