Have you always had a bit of wanderlust in your heart, or toyed with the idea of a permanent living situation abroad? Perhaps the time is right to start exploring the opportunity of what life could look like from a seaside villa or a charming cottage in the midst of sprawling green fields. While it may not be a feasible move for all, the investment opportunity for travel-lovers remains. 

In addition to investment opportunities, many who’ve made the jump to purchase a residence in the EU have reported major savings on healthcare and higher ed, as well as more simplified travel.

Some of the best European Real Estate Markets for US investors include Portugal, Spain, Ireland and Greece due to limited restrictions and a growing tourism industry. With this, comes high demand for AirBnB opportunities. See where we’re going here?

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it, too? With a booming short-term rental market, you’re on your way to a win-win situation.

Now, you may run into some bumps throughout the process and you will require a trusted real estate professional to help guide your way.
