Buy real estate overseas to earn cash flow to fund your dream retirement

In Buying Real Estate Overseas For Cash Flow (And A Better Life): Get Started With As Little As $50,000, Kathleen Peddicord and Lief Simon explain how to incorporate an investment in foreign real estate into your portfolio for as little as $50,000. With a lifetime of experience on the subjects of living, retiring, and investing overseas, the authors delve deep into this complex topic. Simply put, this book is a practical guide to buying property overseas as a strategy for earning cash flow to fund your dream retirement.

In the book, the authors cover topics as wide-ranging as:

  • How to build the cash flow you need to fund the retirement you want
  • 8 markets offering the best current cash-flow opportunities
  • How to move money across borders in today’s post-FATCA world
  • Plus: How to run the numbers to evaluate a potential cash-flow investment

Buying Real Estate Overseas includes a breadth and depth of information on the world’s best markets for investing in real estate for cash flow. Its up-to-date information about this investment category puts to bed much of the outdated advice and guidance currently available in published materials.

The authors identify several hot, new markets where currency valuations and market conditions make the purchase of real estate an extremely wise investment decision in today’s volatile investment climate.
