Rick Otton, the first property coach to teach creative strategies in the United Kingdom, tells the alarming secrets of buying a property for sale in other countries.
Moneycorp discovered that the number of 30-somethings who purchased a property for sale abroad jumped 25 percent between 2009 and 2012.
A news report from The Telegraph on 5 September 2013 confirmed that these people are first home buyers who are locked out of the housing market because of fast rising prices, that’s why they are now casting their nets to foreign countries like U.S., Spain, and Australia because of cheaper prices.
Mr. Otton, however, issues a warning to these buyers. “Before buying a property for sale abroad you must first ask if the property is really cheap to begin with or is it just the new retail price,” he said.
“There is a reason why people could get properties abroad for a very cheap price, especially in the U.S., and it’s because they are properties that can be found in suburbs, which have undergone a ‘white fly’,” according to Mr. Otton.
“This situation occurs when old residents of a suburb leave, because the value of their property has gone down so much, and in the process other demographics take over these abandoned neighbourhoods. Those who take over the suburbs, however, are often low income families or people who are usually connected with illegal activities,” Mr. Otton explained.
“It’s easier to get in and out of these properties when you are in the country where your property is located, but, it’s almost impossible and more expensive to take out your investment abroad if you’re living in another country,” he discussed further.
“To save yourself from the hassles of buying property for sale abroad you can, instead, buy and sell a property in the UK using creative methods even with high prices of houses right now,” Mr. Otton recommended.
“This is better than making overseas investments because you don’t need to save up for a deposit or even apply for a mortgage just to get in your very own property; what’s more, you don’t have to worry about losing your money from a property you haven’t seen or visited yet,” he added.
