Once we understand your requirements, our fully trained advisors will search our database and identify a list of available properties to match your needs.
We have many properties listed on our books covering many countries. This coupled with our knowledge of emerging markets gives us the confidence that we will be able to find the right property for your investment needs.
Financing the purchase of an overseas property can be difficult. Karakata Real Estate has professional relationships with major banks and financial advisors, both in the and in the countries we cover.
We are able to offer support and advice whether you wish to finance your overseas property by re-mortgaging in the or obtaining finance overseas.
Through our network of partners we will be able to provide you with access to the expertise and support you need to arrange the best finance package for your situation.
We also work with currency brokers that usually beat any high street bank when it comes to converting currency overseas.
Proper legal advice is even more critical when you purchase a property abroad than it is in the . A good lawyer will help you overcome all the legal issues that you are likely to face through the purchasing process. They will also ensure that your interests are legally protected and take away much of the stress that you would otherwise face.
Karakata Real Estate can provide access to high quality, local legal advice and support for the purchase or sale of your property.
If you decide to use a lawyer that you have found independently, please ensure that they are reputable and, ideally, that you share a common language.
Most investors are not content to sit on their investment and wait to realise the capital gains. Most want to see their investment working for them from day one, through either long term or short term rentals. By definition, overseas property is separated from the owner by some distance. In these circumstances self management can be difficult.
Karakata Real Estate can provide a full range of property management options to take the stress out of renting your overseas property. These include tenanting (for both long term and holiday lets), maintenance services and tenant services (welcome packs, cleaning etc).
Architectural and Project Management
Buying an undeveloped plot and building your own property can be an excellent investment. In most markets the resale value of a property will significantly exceed the building cost. Building your own property can also ensure that you get exactly what you want and allow you to invest at the earliest stage of an up and coming area’s development.
For many, the concern of self-build overseas lies in the difficulty of remotely managing the project and ensuring a level of build quality and timeliness. Karakata Real Estate is able to provide a full range of design and construction services for both new build and renovation projects. These services range from project management of your selected local builders to designing and building the property on your behalf using our team of quality construction professionals.
Analysing markets, researching properties, conducting viewings and finding the right property can be a time consuming process. At Karakata Real Estate we offer a range of consultancy services to reduce the leg work for our clients.
For clients with little time that are looking to invest in a certain market we can conduct the initial search and identify the most suitable short-list. We can also carry out negotiations and manage the buying process on your behalf – even if you are not buying your property through us. We are also able to provide advice and support in the building of a balanced portfolio of investment properties. Based upon a one to one consultation we can help you to determine your investment objectives and then build the most appropriate property portfolio for you.
Karakata Real Estate can help arrange travel and accommodation should you want to view your property overseas. We have partners in all the countries we work in that can help make your stay much more comfortable.
