Why buy a house abroad?
Investing in foreign real estate has been known as a good investment for many years. Moreover, you can benefit from it in 2 ways:
First, of course, there is a chance that the surplus value on a home abroad will increase significantly over the years. So, this is positive news for people who want to invest in property abroad for their own use. In this way, a homeowner benefits from a chunk of return over a long period of time. Yield maximization is something that can certainly be interesting in the long run for those who buy a property abroad.
Those who want to get more out of their foreign investment of course also have the option to rent out or sell their vacation home at a profit.
Once you have your preferred location(s) in mind, we recommend that you follow the following steps:
Establishing a realistic budget
Establishing your budget allows you to proceed realistically, that way you won't be disappointed further down the road. You will know where your limits lie.
Also consider any renovation budget, notary and/or estate agent fees.
By looking at the listings on ConnectHouses you can make a price indication of your desired home.
Finding a real estate agent
When you do a quick search for a home or property, it can result in a very large list of properties with a lot of potential. The temptation to call or email immediately will therefore be very strong.
However, it is better to first get clear about the services and the working area of the real estate agent. So, you know that you are working with a reliable brokerage in the region where you are looking for a home. We are happy to help you with this.
Viewing real estate
When you have found a potential house for sale or rent on ConnectHouses, you can request a viewing with the real estate agent of the property in question. If you need support with this, we will be happy to help you.
Making an offer
Given the size of the transaction and the long-term effects, it is critical that you fully understand the purchase agreement.
It is important that you engage a legal representative. You can think of a lawyer who is familiar with real estate transactions abroad. They will help you understand the content of the contract.
We have a large independent network of every link in this process and will be happy to inform you.
After the purchase, there is certainly one more thing to do. Above all, you need to enjoy your home abroad. We at ConnectHouses hope to make your dream come true by providing you with your dream home abroad!
