Buying Rental property in another country is much more complicated than just waiting for the proper time to buy. The proper time to buy also does not mean when the Euro is "undervalued". This often is a sign of larger global macroeconomic trends, such as recession, or lower growth compared to other countries. The proper time to buy may be in a couple years if Europe goes into a recession. There are different regulations for landlords depending on where you buy, taxes, and market outlooks. If the Euro is getting weaker, that does not necessarily mean you will be getting a deal on property. It likely means the property will go up in price to match the inflation of the euro. There are many other factors to consider when buying the rental property. Also, the way to go international is not so much to focus on the similarities, but you really need to know the differences between countries inside and out when entering foreign markets, cultural, fiscal, and economic differences is important to understand prior to investing overseas. I do not specialize in international real estate investing, so honestly I am probably not worth a call. Although, to put it in prospective, I would say, what would be the differences you would look at between investing in real estate in NYC, SF, Alabama, and Minnesota? There are significant differences in each state and city, and same goes for different continents and different countries.


Surprised nobody answered this as it is a very simple question. How significant our the PO box fees to each of the three businesses? Are all three owned by the same people? I can say there are a number of acceptable ways to split them up. For example, you could split it by use, so if one business has 80% of the shipments that go through the PO box, then charge 80% to that business. Or you could split it evenly if the volume is not predictable. If they are all by the same owner, it really doesn't matter very much how you allocate it. I assume, you are concerned about this for tax purposes? Please feel free to give me a call to discuss further.


There is so much more information anyone would need to be able to answer this question? Are you looking for properties to rent out, buy and flip, hold and sell? I am not able to give you an ROI estimate as a whole, but if you have a deal in mind, I would be happy to run it through our investment models to give you a reasonable ROI. Also it depends on how you are financing the properties, and what type of properties, will have a big impact on your returns.


You could, however, it is likely you will never be able to expand your business beyond family and friends. It does not cost that much to set up a payment method on an actual website. I would suggest starting your business on Etsy, as they basically give you a website and payment method for free. Obviously they take a cut, but then you can have your Instagram link to the etsy account and basically have that be your business until you are ready to invest in your own website!
