The top investment opportunities from around the world…

At Overseas Property Alert we understand that not everyone wants to live or retire overseas. Some of our readers are more interested in diversifying their investment portfolio to include overseas opportunities. This page is where we share the latest news about international projects and our personal picks for the top investments around the world.

Our team offers several decades of research and investing our own money, and we believe that real estate and agriculture are some of the most secure investments available. No investment is guaranteed of course, but in general, real estate defies most challenges and people will always need to eat.

Sometimes an exciting investment has a short window of opportunity or a small number of available units and potential investors need to act quickly. Other times, we have enticed the developers to create additional offers, exclusively for our followers to make sure everyone has the chance to participate.

Real Estate Investment

Some of the top investments you’ll see featured here include real estate developments in locations such as Panama, Brazil, Northern Cyprus, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic. We’ll share stories about green living in Lisbon, Medellín, Ljubljana, Saint-Chinian, and the Cayo District. You can also learn how to establish a second residency or citizenship through real estate investment.

Since the real estate purchase process is different around the world, we strive to educate you about what to expect, the pitfalls to avoid, and how to protect your investment especially if you don’t live near the property you purchase. You’ll find insider information from other expats with their boots on the ground in many desirable locations and experts you can reach out to with questions.

Whether you are considering a beachfront property in a tourist destination for rental income returns, or a quiet place to visit occasionally and maybe use for full-time retirement down the road, or a quick turn on your investment dollar, we have you covered.

Agricultural Investments

On the agricultural front, some of our top investment suggestions include solar-powered hydroponic farming in Thailand, fruit orchards in Central America, timber forestry projects in Colombia and Panama, truffles in France and Spain, and new opportunities arising from post-pandemic businesses.

We continue to cover the world, looking for more investment opportunities to meet your needs and diverse options to help you build a solid investment portfolio.
