Is your foreign property worth it?

We are fast approaching peak holiday season and with School Summer Holidays drawing near, overseas property investors can expect to cash in on excellent rentals during this period. But are you ready for when the holiday season ends?

EU Property Solutions liaise with many borrowers who have lucrative summer income from their overseas property investment but then find winter a real struggle with little to no rental income. Many hope that the property breaks even but often when performing a financial review, the property is actually making a loss over twelve months.

Other than the mortgage on the property, investors must factor in other costs of owning their overseas property to fully ascertain its profitability:

  1. Community Fees – upkeep of grounds and swimming pools.
  2. Council Tax – has different names in different countries but a regular expense.
  3. Insurance – contents insurance, home insurance and landlord insurance to name a few.
  4. Letting Fees – if you are using an agent or even an online platform there are costs to letting your property.
  5. Maintenance – the upkeep of the property is essential to maintain interest in the property from holiday makers.

If you couple the property being an income ‘loss maker’ and in negative equity then you have a non-performing asset which is becoming a burden. Despite this mix EU Property Solutions see investors struggling and “topping up” their overseas accounts to retain the property.
