Choosing to purchase in a foreign country is a life decision that requires some initial considerations to ensure you find the perfect property and / or home.
Before browsing listings, reflect on the following questions:
If you are looking for a home:
How large does the house have to be for you and your family to be comfortable?
What size of yard will you need?
What would be your parking and transportation needs?
Will you need to have Internet service?
If you are looking for land only:
What is the intended future use of this land going to be?
Will you want to be in a private setting - or not so far from the nearest neighbor?
Will you want room for livestock or planting / farming?
Then there are other considerations:
How far is TOO far from the beach?
How important is having a property close to work, local amenities, public transportation?
Are there areas that you want to avoid?
Are you willing to purchase a home or property that is involved with a Home Owner’s Association?
Are there special considerations required for hobbies, guests, potential additions to the family, physical limitations or disabilities?
Then of course if you are looking to invest in an existing business ALL of the above applies as well as what kind of monthly minimum return you can expect from your newest venture.
The answers to these questions will help you not only determine the type of property or home that will be the best for you, but also save you time from viewings that don’t meet your personal criteria.
