Summary

For anyone thinking of buying a home in another country, here is essential information to help them with their purchase. Foreign buyers can often get caught in a sea of red tape, but author David Hampshire takes the worry out of dealing with the bureaucracy with clear-cut instructions on how to seek, buy and develop property. Each book deals with mortgages, taxes and where to get financing and insurance. Vital information is also included on how to select a real estate agent and how to deal with utility companies. Whether buyers are seeking a mansion, villa, farmhouse, townhouse or apartment, a vacation or permanent home, the "Buying A Home Series" will help make their dreams come true.
