Owning a place abroad
Spent a couple of weeks in Spain
Talking to a guy who bought a gaff there just a 3 bed apartment
Lucky to be used about 6 weeks a year
Does not rent it out
Bought if 14 years ago says it's cost him about 15 k every year mortgage etc
He had made a few quid in the building game so can afford it
The idea sounds nice but only for the rich
Anyone got a place abroad pros and cons?

I have owned a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in Paphos Cyprus for 15 years now & never regret buying it. I have spent
A lot of time out there, more so now I am retired. There is still good value to be had in Cyprus & I would def recommend Paphos.

Its only wise if you use it or it makes you money.
Propery prices in Lisbon have been going up 25% a year last few years.
Hotest place on the planet.

Wouldn't recommend.

Relatives have a place in Tuscany. Lovely, but they feel obliged to go there when there's a whole world to see. Not necessarily to do with the cost more limited holiday allowance and so often spent there.

Was thinking about a place in northern France to go every weekend or every other weekend, still thinking about it, but would need to go twice a month or so for it to be worth it.

Sounds like a couple of people bet the shirt they wear on the wrong horse in the two-horse referendum hurdles and are now trying to blame others for their erroneous choice.

Re: Owning a place abroad
It's all a bit questionable now because of Brexit. You can thank the ignorant and poor of Britain for closing the door on that one.

A few years ago I would have said Thailand but it's turned into Military run shit hole with swarms of Chinese tourists and unaccommodating Visa rules even for those married to a Thai.

Re: Owning a place abroad
If you find a place through an Agent ask to meet 2/3 of thier previous British Clients who bought through them.Works well here anyway even made a couple of friends in doing so but also rejected any advice from another Agent based upon what her previous Clients said about them.

Re: Owning a place abroad
Thinking about doing this in the next 5-8 years, selling up here once the mortgage is paid off and splitting the money between a place here and a place abroad.....

Re: Owning a place abroad
If you buy a place in Portugal for > € 500,000 you can get EU residency. Nice!
