Deciding to move abroad is exciting and life-changing. You may be choosing to re-locate to be closer to family, to enjoy your retirement in a warmer climate, to seek a new job opportunity or just because you are ready for a change and you want to start afresh somewhere new.
Whatever is motivating you to make the move, there is a lot to consider before it your dream can become a reality.
One of the initial decisions you will need to make is whether to sell or rent your existing property.
Sell or rent?
There are pros and cons to both. Can you afford to move overseas without selling your home? Do you want the security of having a property to return to if things don’t work out?
If you can afford to emigrate without selling, and want the security of a property to return to, then renting may be a better option. However, on the downside, renting the property whilst you are away means you will need to hire a company to manage the property and tenants, and this could be expensive. You may also have higher tax to pay on the rental income.
If you don’t think you will want to return, then selling your home will give you a cash injection and will enable you to make a completely fresh start.
Selling your home quickly to move abroad
One key consideration when deciding to sell your home to move abroad is setting an achievable completion date.
Selling your home on the open market is a notoriously slow, and often a stressful process. It can take weeks for a property to complete, and there is also the risk that your property chain could break, leaving you, and your plans, in a very vulnerable situation.
When emigrating there is a lot of paperwork and red tape to get through. You will have to propose your intended move/completion date to the authorities in the country you are intending to live. This means you need to ensure you achieve this move date, and minimise any risk there may be of not achieving it. Missing your emigration completion date could be very expensive.
