    Babcock & Brown also seem to like residential units and apratment complexes in Prague.

    Maybe that tells you something.

    Man oh man, have I had my head in the sand![blush2]
    But then again, I have been “totally out of it” since the passing away of my wife just over 12 months ago.
    But I’ll show my ignorance here. Please be kind to me?

    But how long has Japan been open to foreign investors? I thought it was still forbidden for non Japanese nationals to own Japanese freeholds. Then again I am still a virgin to buying O/S IP’s. Haven’t even researched a property at all yet.
    Also, too you guys that have purchased anywhere O/S, would you say it was essential to physically go to the country to view 1st hand or would you say it is nice to go but not necessary? In myself, I think it would be good but, if you read my profile, I am rather tied down at present.
    Cheers,
    Bruce.

    Hi,
    Bought a 2 room apartment in the very centre of
    Moscow 9 months ago for 118K US spent about 25K on fees and repairs and now its worth nearly 200K US..
    Rented out at $400 US a week.

    The process is a strange and complex system but my english speaking agent took care of everything.
    Its still a very corrupt country but i think the western media exaggerates the situation here. Its ever so slowly improving.
    Looking forward to buying another one, maybe the gains wont be there but the yield is, as there are countless westerners living here after good central apartments to rent.

    Hi Doncossack,

    Good luck with Russia. I have a friend whose parents were kidnapped and ransomed by the Russian mafia (they got out unharmed) and another who used to export food there and owned a few supermarkets. He no longer deals there, has lost all of his investment and has been promised a grewsome death if he ever steps foot back in the country.

    I also have a cousin who was the major shareholder in a gold mining coimpany over there. It went broke because the governemnt wouldn’t let him take the gold outside the country.

    These may not be the general experience of people dealing in Russia, but they are the only three people I know who have done business over there and none of them have done well.

    Regards
    Alistair Perry

    About the USA. It seems to have just finished its boom. So you’d only be investing for cashflow which is appx 10-20% rental return, if your smart. You can get finance easy on 20-30% deposit and they speak english and follow our cultural-legal lines unlike Estonia or China or Nepal.

    If you create a cashflow property portfolio of four such properties you can automatically buy one a year (5%x4=20% deposit). Some people have portfolios of 600 properties because they all produce cashflow. Cash is the name of the game not capital gain…unless you want to be asset rich and cash poor….not great for your lifestyle!
    Call me if you want more info on 0411373435, thanks Andrew.

    It is still very hard for a non resident to get finance – especially for a non owner occupied home.

    Shinsei do lend to non residents but only if they will live in the home.

    Hi DLPP,

    The guy wasn’t a property investor, he owns a trading firm, although he did own a few supermarkets through which he sold his products. Baby food was his biggest seller, appprently they don’t have it over there.

    There is definately a book coming out about the couple who were kidnapped. Some people may remember the incident, it made front page news at the time, although it was a long time ago 15 years +

    Regards
    Alistair

    Gary has been a busy boy.
