Get a Mortgage

It’s no surprise that sellers prefer a cash buyer and chances are having the funds ready to go will put you in a stronger position to negotiate. However, not everyone finds themselves in this position and taking out an overseas mortgage is a viable alternative.

You can present yourself as a serious buyer by speaking to an overseas mortgage specialist beforehand and securing an ‘agreement in principle’ which shows you have checked out what you can afford to spend.
