Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Just want to share an article with you.

Why A Real Estate Investment Overseas Can Double As A Retirement Plan;

An investment in a piece of real estate in another country is the best, smartest thing you could do with your money right now. How can I make that statement with such confidence?

Reason #1: Like real estate anywhere, real estate overseas is a hard asset, and, in the current investment climate, hard assets are the most sensible investment class, the best choice for storing value...

Reason #2: As with real estate anywhere, you’re buying with the hope of capital appreciation, but you can also be buying for cash flow, right now an important investment agenda...

Reason #3: Real estate overseas provides portfolio diversification — diversification of currency, diversification of market, and diversification of asset type (rental, farm land, condo-hotel, etc.)...

Reason #4: Real estate overseas provides the opportunity for you to position yourself to profit from both expanding and crisis markets...

Reason #5: Real estate overseas can double as a retirement plan — today’s investment can be tomorrow’s retirement residence...

Reason #6: Real estate overseas can double as a holiday home, an investment that you and your family are able to use and enjoy from the day you make it...

Reason #7: Real estate overseas can be part of a legacy of wealth that you leave to your heirs...

Reason #8: Real estate overseas is safe and private, the only remaining asset type that an American need not report to the IRS every year...

Reason #9: A real estate investment overseas can bring tax advantages, including deductions you can take on your U.S. tax return...

Reviewing this list of reasons to buy real estate overseas, you notice that, big picture, it breaks itself down into two categories — category 1: investment; category 2: lifestyle. Different agendas that, for the best results, should be considered in unison.

Another thing to notice about this list of reasons to put your time and money into the acquisition of real estate overseas is that, fundamentally, it’s all about diversification. This is the real advantage of this strategy — diversification of your portfolio and your assets, but diversification, too, of your "life", your "retirement", and your "legacy".

We are living at a time that presents the opportunity to take the investor’s profit agenda, combine it with the live-better-for-less agenda of the retiree, and transfer it overseas. An opportunity to use overseas real estate as both an investment vehicle and a strategy for a new, healthier and better life, both immediately and longer term in retirement. Overseas real estate amounts to the surest strategy for creating and preserving legacy wealth while simultaneously reinventing your life and rescuing your retirement.

Thanks to global market events of the past half-dozen years, many options exist right now for where to buy to make money while also making a new life, and, thanks to our Age of the Internet, it is possible today to seize these opportunities easily and cost-effectively to build a new life while staying in real-time touch with family, friends, business concerns, and investment portfolios from the old one.

The best case is when you are able to find a piece of real estate in a place where you want to spend time, short term on vacation and long term in retirement, that also holds out the potential for an investment return, in the form of capital appreciation, farming or land development. This perfect storm of objectives should be your ultimate goal.

The reasons to diversify your investment portfolio and your lifestyle to include real estate overseas have never been more compelling than they are right now. The critical common denominator is a willingness to consider opportunities that fall outside traditional comfort zones. You must diversify, both your investments and your life. It’s a necessity of the world we’re living in.

Now the question is? were to Invest overseas?

    There are a lot of good places to invest in overseas depending on what you are looking for. I have met the owners of ECI a company that works with Americans looking to invest and even move overseas. They send out articles and newsletters from time to time with places they are looking at, investing in, etc.

    For me it's important to pick a place I speak the language and can blend in if needed. Since I speak Spanish, and have already lived in South America before, I am looking at places in Central and South America as good places to buy and rent for income and to buy and live if/when I feel like it's time to leave the USSA.

    I was reading about overseas investment and noticed one article said 'Don't bank with an institution in any way connected to United States' banking facilities!'

      SInce 9-11 almost all overseas (non-US) banking institutions have been co-opted to provide personal information of all their customers to the US government. This was supposed to be to prevent terrorism and money laundering for terrorists, but it only interferes with banking of individuals who are not politically connected. (Terrorists bribe politically connected US banking companies and avoid the chance to be reported. Only innocent people are reported; this law works just as well as gun laws- they only restrict activities of innocent people and benefit looters.) Many overseas banks have decided that instead of agreeing to provide the personal information to the US government they will refuse to do business with US citizens. Thus the government has eliminated free market banking and eliminated overseas competition for US banksters. Yet another reason to suspect that 9-11 was a false flag operation and that the federal government explanation is a government conspiracy theory- lies to benefit looters, just as Rand predicted in Atlas Shrugged.
