Overseas Property Research by Barclay Bank

New research commissioned by Barclays shows that an incredible 37% of the UK population is considering buying property abroad; 5% are definitely planning to do so. If 5% do buy, this will double the number of Brits owning property overseas.

France is the third most popular destination (14%) just behind America (15%) with Spain leading the way (30%).

Before the dream, people recognise the reality.

All of these factors contribute to the 8% who are worried about being taken for a ride and paying too much for a property.

Fears about the law, the language, the security, and the confidence may prevent UK buyers from realising their dream.

This survey is encouraging and I hope that from your side you can help show that we here at Verde Property can offer a service that is exactly what the UK public is looking for.
