When it comes to both selling and buying a property abroad, timing is everything.
With market fluctuations occurring and things constantly changing, you need to make sure you’re snapping up a property at the optimum time in order to ensure a good return on investment and to avoid losing out on hefty sums of money. Brits are still seeking solace in European holiday homes, but is now a good time to buy and if so, where?

After a decade of uncertainty, Spain is still the most popular choice for Brits buying a property abroad. The volume of sales has been increasing quarter on quarter and there is a lot of confidence being recovered in the market. Properties remain affordable and are a lot cheaper than some of the neighbouring countries that Brits are flocking to, so it’s a good choice if you don’t have loads of money to splash out with.
If you are really looking to budget when it comes to buying a property abroad, Bulgaria is the best option for you. With its amazing scenery, beaches and mountains, it’s a great choice in terms of location and is also extremely affordable when it comes to the cost of living and of buying property. The average property price is £90,734, while utility bills will only set you back on average £70 a month. With interest increasing in the country, now may also be a good time to buy and sell as you may stand to make money.
France has always been another popular choice for Britons interested in buying a property abroad, with the French Riviera being a particular pull to the region. The newly-appointed French President is committed to reducing taxes for property owners and simplifying the fiscal framework, all strong pulls for anyone about to invest in a home in France.
