Three practical considerations for purchasing a holiday home abroad – HiFX – The Financial Latest (blog)

There are three considerations one needs to take into account when purchasing a holiday home in a different country. One of the most interesting things about buying a home abroad is that there is a different set of steps. The mortgages are not the same everywhere. Things work differently in different places, so if you do not buy your home right away and finance it, you need to be aware. There are a lot of other things to keep in mind too.

Key Takeaways:

  • Make sure to understand the pros and cons of buying a “vacation home”.
  • Owning a home can include hidden costs that are not analyzed until a home owner must shell out extensive amounts of repairs or bills.
  • Understand the location of the property and how that correlates with country taxes as well as any laws concerning the regulation of the property.
