An Introduction to Global Property Investing
Buying and owning property or real estate is an investment strategy that can be both satisfying and lucrative.
Unlike stock and bond investors, prospective real estate owners can use leverage to buy a property by paying a portion of the total cost up front, then paying off the balance, plus interest, over time.
Buy-to-let mortgages generally requires a 30% to 40% down payment.
It’s quite common to find that expats are turned away from mortgages either in their home countires or in the country where they would like to buy properties.

The focus should be on holding a property for in excess of 10 years and seeking a good long-term capital growth stratgey
Pros: Rental properties can provide regular income while maximising available capital through leverage helping to build long-term wealth.
Moreover, many associated expenses are tax-deductible.
In ideal situations, properties appreciate over the course of their mortgages, leaving landlords with a more valuable asset than they started with.
Cons: Unless you hire a property management company, rental properties tend to be plagued with constant headaches. Once the mortgage has been paid off completely, the majority of the rent becomes all profit.
