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?
If you pick the right country, you could just buy one.
Called “immigrant investor programs,” or Golden Visas, these programs are designed to attract foreign capital and business people by providin ...

Bad world news may be good news for Hudson Valley real estate in 2020.

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems.


As a global real estate marketing brokerage, we here at Global Property Systems keep an eye on international news and world concerns. Because many of our clients are from abroad, their worries are our worries. Few people realize that troubles such as unrest in the Middle East or the spread of the coronavirus in Asia actually have an effect on markets and real estate investments in the United States.

Surprisingly, in the midst of all this seeming chaos and bad news, one sector that improves with bad news is real estate.

Mark Fleming, the chief economist for First American Financial Corporation said in a recent report: 
“Global events and uncertainty…impact the U.S. economy, and more specifically, the U.S. housing market…U.S. bonds, backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, are widely considered the safest investments in the world. When global investors sense ...

Five things to consider before buying property abroad.

Do you have dreams of moving abroad? Maybe you plan to retire somewhere tropical where island breezes and warm sand are a part of every day living? Or perhaps finding a little bit of paradise overlooking Tuscan vineyards or Spanish olive groves for you to visit a few months out of the year? If you've ever thought of buying a little place of your own in another country, first you need to do some homework. Below are five things to consider when you plan your great escape.

1. How's the economy?
Moving overseas can be a good idea in an area with a low cost of living. But first, you should look into what it costs to live in paradise. Analysis by experts is available from the World Population Review's website . Plan ahead and budget accordingly.

2. Foreign Property Ownership Laws
Not every country allows just anybody to own real property like the United States. According to financial consulting firm SmartAsset, "Even if the country you’re interested in allows foreigners ...

Don't make this mistake when hiring a commercial REALTOR®.

When hiring a REALTOR®, be sure he or she is skilled in the type of property transaction you intend to make. The truth is, different real estate dealings come with different regulations, and if your agent isn't an expert in the type of transaction you're conducting, it could come back to bite you not only during the transaction buy down the road as well. 

Here's a real-world scenario as related to us by Pearl Insurance, our risk management specialists, in which an agent well-versed in residential sales decided to venture into commercial sales and ended up being sued.

THE SITUATION


A real estate agent with a successful background in residential sales received a request from a light manufacturer to help locate a new business space to rent. The agent had been selling residential homes for over 30 years, and he welcomed the opportunity to finally put his commercial real estate knowledge to use.

THE PROBLEM


The agent was considered an expert in residential tr ...

SPECTACULAR CASTLE NEAR SIENA | TUSCANY | ITALY

Set amidst the gentle backdrop of central Tuscany, this spectacular 19th century castle offers magnificent views of the region’s hills and valleys. Located midway between Florence and the Adriatic Sea, the castle was built in medieval style by Italian poet Giovanni Giusti, a lover of medieval culture. The 35-room castle features the essence of the era, with arched windows, wrought iron gates, a pillared open-air entry hall, coffered ceilings, stone stairs, vaults, spiral staircases, and original frescoes on the ceilings.


The castle is surrounded by an Italian garden with a wide variety of foreign and domestic Italian plantings. Driving up the cypress tree lined drive, your first hint of the grandeur to come is the magnificent main gate in the middle of the facade. A matching gate leads out on the opposite side of the castle. Overlooking the pillared indoor courtyard is a  double arched window on the second floor and pointed arched windows on th ...
