The top 10 places Brits should consider buying abroad

Hola!

You may think you know everything you need to know before buying your own property and all the jargon that comes with buying a house – but were you aware that buying abroad could be a cheaper and better investment?

Ok, so the idea of owning your own holiday property before owning something at home might not seem like the most sensible but everyone loves a getaway, right? (And we can dream…)

And, with over 2.5 million monthly searches on RightMove for properties in Spain, it’s no surprise buyers are comparing what they can get in the UK with what they can get abroad.
