Our events are held internationally and our team of qualified professionals consist largely of expats from around the world, professionals who know first hand the joys, challenges and changes you can expect when choosing to purchase a property overseas. They have valuable industry knowledge, an ear to the ground, as well as a wealth of practical and personal experiences to help guide you through your journey.
Ready to invest in property abroad but uncertain where to start? We recommend your first step be one of getting informed by qualified professionals. Having access to reputable local knowledge can sometimes be challenging and costly, and lack of or incorrect information can be risky. The Overseas Property Show concentrates on bridging this gap. The show follows on the success of international events and focuses on informing interested buyers and investors on the realistic aspects of purchasing and owning abroad. It provides buyers an opportunity to obtain valuable and bespoke advice from qualified professionals, many of whom have made the same decision of buying and relocating abroad. Visitors can expect informative presentations and questions and answers sessions focusing on essential subjects such as the buying process, legalities, taxes, capital gains, inheritance and the many more questions that arise when purchasing property abroad. The show also provides details specific to the chosen country, the freedom to make comparisons and the ability to get a realistic picture of where they are buying. Most importantly to understand and have transparency of the various processes, and feel confident in their decision today, and in the future. This year, the show will include properties from Portugal, Spain and Florida, all three areas currently being hotspots for those buying overseas - for second homes, retirement and investment properties. As well as presenting you with fantastic property options on the day, we can also introduce you to architects who can talk you through the benefits of designing and building your own property, and the financial savings of doing so. As always, The Overseas Property Show team is on hand, offering completely free consultations for both planning the journey ahead, and financing advice for dealing with the banks in other countries.
