Affordable prices and advantageous taxation ... it is often more interesting to turn to a foreign country to make a good investment in stone.
Our advice to choose your project, all the precautions to take before launching and a selection of five countries where it is good to invest in real estate.
With the Schengen area and globalization, investing in real estate abroad has become much more accessible. And the French are among the first to enjoy! "For twenty years, and especially since the beginning of 2010, the French are very inclined to invest internationally," says Thibault de Saint-Vincent, president of the network of prestigious real estate agencies Barnes.
Paris, one of the most expensive cities in Europe
It must be said that, in the Hexagon, between ever higher land prices and a heavier taxation than in most other countries, "individuals are discouraged to invest," continues Thibault de Saint-Vincent.
For example, where there is almost € 9,000 per square meter to buy an old apartment in Paris, the cost of real estate is nearly half as high in Lisbon and almost three times less in Barcelona. But, beware, not all destinations are equal. More than ever, it is essential to respect the "three golden rules": the location, the location and ... the location. In order not to be deceived in the choice of its housing, it is obviously recommended to go on the spot.
