The hidden costs of living abroad.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Does life in the United States ever get so (insert your own adjective here - boring, irritating, complicated, expensive, whatever bugs you,) that you think about just cashing it all in and moving to another country? You can, but be prepared for some unexpected costs of living. When you discover that many of the things we take for granted here in the good old U.S. of A are either more expensive, heavily taxed or totally unheard of in the States, you may just decide that the "Ex" in Ex-Pat stands for "Expensive."
Car insurance and healthcare
Compared to many countries, U.S. car insurance is relatively inexpensive. Not so in other parts of the world. But don’t scrimp on coverage. Be sure you have the insurance you need for anything that might happen on the road. And if you plan to avail yourself of your new country’s legendary free health care system, think again.

Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors pointed out this trend recently in an interview on CNBC.

Fed up? Get a Golden Visa and go!

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
I recently observed an online discussion string among people so fed up with American politics that they were planning on moving out of the country. Many were British ex-pats making plans to return to Old Blighty (the UK). But some were Born-in-the-USA citizens looking for a place to live with fewer hurricanes and less governmental turbulence.
If you’re an American thinking about permanent residency elsewhere, keep in mind you can’t just go without a visa from your intended new home country granting you permanent residence status and a passport. Getting a visa can be a time-consuming project which may not always turn out as intended. So what’s a soon-to-be expatriate to do?
