At Hurst & Wills we will help unravel the complexities of purchasing foreign property. We will lead you through the process, from research to purchase, and from management to exit.
Research is a huge part of our success, and we make sure we know what is happening in the global arena both from a property and economy point of view. We identify key markets and investments that offer attractive opportunities for our South African clients.
We visit our markets every three months, checking the progress, infrastructure and conducting site visits, whilst liaising with our partners on the ground on a weekly basis.
Our team of specialists are here to guide you through the process of establishing and building your international property portfolio. We take the stress out of decisions by providing you with a carefully researched shortlist of properties to meet your financial goals.
Once you have selected your property, we work with our local and foreign partners to guide you through every step of the process, negotiating price and terms on your behalf and seeing the sale through to completion.
Whilst we encourage you to always seek your own financial and tax advice, we can consider this when suggesting your property plan. We can refer you to the best specialists and advise when to invest to take advantage of discretionary allowances, and the best foreign exchange rates, and most efficient tax planning.
Management and letting
Being a foreign landlord can be stressful and time-consuming. We offer access to local partners on the ground who can assist in furnishing, lettings and management of your overseas property.
We believe in lifelong clients, not on a one-off sale. We are committed to helping you build your international property portfolio, and can advise on a long-term strategy including diversification, resale and exit strategy.
Our buyer’s acquisition service offers clients access to off-market commercial opportunities and bespoke properties. Please note that this service is subject to minimum investments and professional sourcing fees will apply.
