Comments on: Emerging Europe property revival Shining a light on the dismal science Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:39:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: Gaic Mon, 24 Aug 2009 08:28:15 +0000 Hello,

We often forget about Slovenia, a safe country to invest (and such a beautiful one!). Futhermore properties are still very affordable and the environment great.
The location makes Slovenia a great destination for Saling, skiing, mountain biking, hiking and also for the great quality of the food.

For example, here is a house in a vineyard at the top of a hill in Lendavaske gorice (east of Slovenia): lendava(.)webs(.)com.

Roughly speaking there are two kind of investors at Russian real estate markets: 1) Those who are investing, and 2) those who keep saying that they will invest but in fact does not manage to do so.

In Russia you loose face rather fast in case of the latter. Once you loose it in Russia you might as well close the shop.

Remember agents make money from sourcing ‘investment’ properties for you and many will tell you anything to secure a sale.

Double the normal amount of due diligence before investing overseas.

Signs up “for rent” all over the place + buildings being finished that started when there was a building frenzy 2 years ago will make sure that the market is going to be hard. Lets see how many of the developers roll over.

a) use the assistance of a UK company familiar with the country, to assist you.

b) choose a country whose language you know

c) do LOTS of research on the market by yourself before you visit the area.
