Cheap Property Abroad – Some Good Advice

Overseas property investors all know that the profits in any investment property abroad are made at the purchase. That is to say the property is bought cheap enough that capital gains are almost certain. Seasoned investors continuously search the overseas property markets for cheap property abroad, but is this really the best way to find a good investment property?I once learned of an apparent Chinese proverb which said “cheap things no good, good things no cheap “which runs along the lines of if it’s too good to be true it probably is.Cheap property abroad is cheap for a reason and this is where investors will have to place their attention. Why is this property so cheap?Off Plan propertyPre-construction property can be bought before a brick is laid and sometimes before even planning permission is granted. Off plan, property is a great way to make your profit on the purchase. Typically buying property at this early stage almost guarantees you a profit when the property is built and ready to sell. However investors need to study the market, in generally stable markets builders will offer the property cheap enough for investors to make a profit.Some builders will guarantee that the price of the finished property will be ‘X’. This can be ideal as investors can anticipate profits and even plan what they will do with the instant equity in their property once it has been finished. Investors need to be careful with title and planning permission and should seek legal advice to make sure that these are correct at the time of purchase. Off plan property can be cheap because the builder needs to raise funds to continue building and without your early investment money the project may not even start. Investors need to seek guarantees regarding projects that don’t take off. A safe way is to have your money held in an escrow account. Here are some considerations:1.) What guarantees do you have that the developer would not go under or this project would not go under?2.) Will my deposit be placed in an Escrow Account?3.) Research the building company, what work have they done in the past4.) Has the builder secured planning permission and local permissions for the project?5.) Are there any legal safeguards for foreign investors in the case of non-completion or poor construction work by the developer?6.) What if you decided to sell before completion of the project, would that be possible and would I be penalized in anyway?7.) How easy is it to buy and sell property in this country?8.) What if I decide to sell my (residence/hotel suite)?9.) Are there any other fees while the project is being built and what about after completion?10.) What do you anticipate the rental income to be once the facility opens based on current rates at similar properties?11.) What is the payment schedule?12.) What happens if the building is delayed?13.) What is the rental yield I can expect?14.) What are the tax and inheritance implications?15.) What is the buying process in this country?Cheap property for sale it could be the locationMany overseas markets have not been subject to the over-inflated prices that many European and US cities have undergone. These prices have been driven by demand over supply. So why has this not happen in the region that is offering cheap property? It is clear that many countries are new to the overseas property markets. Former eastern block countries are a good example of this. Regions that do not have very good access and low cost of living will also offer cheap property abroad. However, it could well be that there is so much land i.e. supply is plenty that property prices are not being pushed up. Emerging markets where investors have not had a chance to buy property could be ripe. Consider the buying and legal process some governments make foreign buyers jump through so many hoops that it puts investors off. Healthcare, government stability, lack of infrastructure all reason why the property is still cheap.It is clear that cheap property may not be all it seems but research can make cheap property abroad a profitable business for the overseas property investor. Investors who find cheap property abroad should know the reason why and identify features that will remedy these factors. A good example is a region with a lack of infrastructure but there are plans in place to improve upon these in the not too distant future. This sort of foresight can save money on the purchase and make money on sale.

How to Choose Quality Nutrition Supplements

It is hard to discern the truth about the nutritional health supplements available on the market today. How do you know which of the nutritional vitamin supplements to pick? Some of the questions I believe are important are the following:Questions regarding Nutritional Health Supplement choices:*Is this a quality nutritional health supplement that will meet my nutritional demands, does it work?*Is this a fair price for this specific nutritional health supplement?*Is this vitamin supplement going to make me feel better or is it going to just fill a need for my body, will I notice a difference?*What is the difference between grocery store nutritional health supplements and physician distributed nutritional supplements?*How long do I need to take this particular nutritional health supplement?Is this a quality nutritional health supplement that will meet my nutritional demands, does it work?As far as the quality of any given nutritional health supplement it is important to choose quality. You would not choose to eat produce that is spoiled or rotten so why would you choose a supplement that you do not know how it was manufactured or where the ingredients come from? There are a lot of nutritional health supplements on the market that contain a lot of fillers and synthetic ingredients that can put stress on the body just trying to process them, namely the digestive tract, kidneys and liver.Is this a fair price for this specific nutritional health supplement?The prices for quality nutritional health supplement are going to be a little higher because they are made with quality ingredients. I often warn patients against getting the bargain two for one price at the grocery store for glucosamine chondroitin because when I ask them to bring it in all I see is those two ingredients. There are often times when the body needs synergistic nutrition (other nutrients) in order to fully utilize the nutritional health supplement you are taking. The body is very complex and it is important to know you are supporting it correctly. Total Joint Relief by Nutriwest has all the synergistic nutrition in order to support the joints. I also cringe when there is a sale on the fish oils. Please know that it is easy for fish oils to go rancid and this is not something you want in your body. High quality fish oils are a must. My favorite is Metagenics EPA/DHA Extra Strength Enteric Coated. These are quality fish oils in a great ratio and enteric coated which greatly minimizes or completely eliminates any burping up of the fish oils.Is this nutritional vitamin supplement going to make me feel better or is it going to just fill a need for my body, will I notice a difference?Depending on how severe your nutritional vitamin deficiency is and how important that nutrient is to the body will depend on whether or not you will feel a difference on that particular nutritional health supplement. The fact is the fruits and vegetables we eat only have a fraction of the nutrients they use to due to depleted soils. Therefore to support your diet with quality nutritional health supplements is a must to remain healthy. You can also look to family genetics to see if you need support in a particular area of your health.What is the difference between grocery store nutritional health supplements and physician distributed nutritional supplements?The nutritional health supplements exclusively sold by physicians or health practitioners are referred to as nutraceutics, pharmaceutical grade nutrition or high-grade quality nutritional supplements. They are more concentrated, have better manufacturing processes and have been proven to work through studies and patients. These nutritional health supplements are also mostly sold through physicians so the patient can be monitored for any side effects. So it is of utmost importance that you read any and all contraindications to any of the quality nutritional supplements you purchase.How long do I need to take this particular nutritional health supplement?The duration of taking the supplements will depend on the nutritional health supplement you choose and how severe the illness or deficiency. There are great testing methods that are now available to determine what your needs are. They are not the blood tests normally done in your medical doctors office, they are specific tests to determine if you are deficient in certain minerals, vitamins, fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidant levels. With this information you will be given timelines and dosages for taking your specific nutritional health supplements. However, as a basic support program I would include the following listed below as a minimum nutritional health supplement program and then use other more specific nutritional health supplements for other needs or concerns that need addressed. For example: Ultrameal Plus by Metagenics to bring down cholesterol or triglycerides and Core Level Lung by Nutriwest after an upper respiratory infection or for damaged caused by smoking. Most people do not realize that when you get sick and take a drug, although the illness is no longer showing symptoms your body is still in repair and most likely needs some quality nutritional health support to continue to heal that area and or tissues. This is a great way to work with traditional medicine.Basic Nutritional Health Supplementation:*Multivitamin/Mineral Complex*Omega 3 essential fatty acidsOr you can get both of the above in the Wellness Essentials Men or Women*Digestive enzymes*DSF, otherwise know as De-Stress formula, an absolute patient favorite at our office. Supports important nutrients your body depletes during times of prolonged and acute stress.
