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.
On our sister-site aplaceinthesun.com you’ll find specialists offering mortgages in a range of countries.
