Invest in real estate abroad

Investing abroad, a dream for many. Bali, Dubai, Mauritius… and many other destinations that have an extremely interesting real estate market, in addition to extraordinary landscapes, an exotic tropical way of life… and a tax system that should not be overlooked.

Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty takes stock for you:

Investing in real estate abroad can be quite a headache, especially because French banks can be cautious about lending for this type of project. The best is then to turn to a local bank, however the latter may also be reluctant to lend money to non-residents.
Obviously the simplest solution is to use capital stocks.

Investing abroad requires significant preparation and precise knowledge of the country in which you wish to settle, as well as on-site support for personalized advice.

Put the odds on your side to conclude your one-of-a-kind project, offering many perspectives to whoever undertakes it.

An advantageous tax

While France offers many schemes that do not necessarily encourage short-term investment, many French people therefore choose to go abroad, especially to countries that have signed a tax treaty with France.
For example, taxes on real estate capital gains can be divided by 2 or even 3 compared to France.

Cheaper real estate

Beyond advantageous taxation, investing abroad also allows you to find the property of your dreams at a lower cost than in France.
While it can be difficult to realize your dream in France due to a very high price per m2, this dream is again possible when leaving the country. For the price of an average property in Paris, it will be possible to buy a house by the sea in Portugal, a riad in Morocco or a villa in the Cyclades.

Do not neglect the additional costs

Be careful not to neglect the additional costs. Choose an international contact who will accompany you from France to your new destination.
The laws may also be different and you should carefully follow the legislation and the geopolitical situation of the country in which you wish to invest. In addition, each country has its specificities in terms of administrative and tax rules, which it is important to understand before embarking on the process.
