With all of the inventions that have connected different parts of the world, living between nations is easier than ever in history, then why shouldn’t you take advantage of this? I know it sounds like someone from the 17th century is talking, but think about it for a second, we are living our ancestors dreams of flying things that would transfer human faster than any horse! If you look at the world around you with a different mindset, you’d notice how lucky we are with all the cool things we have access to. Then why not using them?
Buying a vacation home abroad makes a lot of sense if you go on vacation every year and spend a couple of thousand dollars each time. You can invest in a property and only pay for your tickets each year, plus knowing that you have an investment in another country in case things go wrong in your home. Plus you can rent out your property when you’re not using it which would pay off for itself in long term.
In this post, we’ll talk about 10 best places abroad to buy a vacation home.
Greece is full of beautiful islands that aren’t packed with tourists and with Greek food and Great history, who wouldn’t want to buy a vacation home in Greece?
Brazil is full of amazing cities and mesmerizing landscapes to enjoy. With a constantly growing tourism industry and a weaker currency compared to the USD and Euro, it makes sense to buy a holiday or rental property in Brazil.
Malta’s capital, Valletta was chosen as a European capital of culture in 2018. This island country in Europe is known for its low tax system, stable economy, and amazing Mediterranean weather. Buying a rental property in Malta is a great investment.
Turkey is constantly among the 10 most visited countries in the world which means a lot of tourists each year that would rent your holiday home all year long when you’re not enjoying mouthwatering Turkish Donair and white sand beaches yourself.
Being an underrated destination with growing numbers of expats, Belize is an amazing place to spend a few weeks each year and to be sure that your property’s value would go higher constantly.
France has traditionally been one of the most charming countries in Europe. And believe it or not, France is not all about Paris, although it’s not a bad decision to buy a property in the lovers’ city, thanks to its stable real estate market. But if Paris is just too expensive, you can consider tons of other options, whether you’re into mountains, wineries, ocean, or simply the French cuisine, France has something to offer.
Mexico is not a dangerous drug cartel country anymore! The country’s middle class is expanding fast which helps the economy to grow and whether you’re looking for a holiday home, an investment opportunity, or a retiree location, Mexico could be your Go-To place.
Croatian cities like Dubrovnik and Split are becoming hot spots for sun-seekers and history lovers. Since the country has become more popular in international tourism, the prices have gone up but it’s still much more affordable than most Western countries for a second home.
Florida, United States
Believe it or not, Florida is abroad for non-Americans! Florida has long been a popular holiday destination for Americans and international tourists. This state has a stable real estate market and being close to the Caribbeans, means a warm climate year-round!
Portugal is one of the most sought-after destinations in the world now, and why not? With stunning nature, warm people, and sunny weather most of the year, who doesn’t want to relax in Portugal every year? At least Madonna does! Even though the prices are too expensive in Lisbon, there are still tons of other location which would still offer affordable prices in Portugal.

If I were to pick, I’ll pick Greece and France 🙂
Awesome choices! I love them both, especially Greece because of their food! Lol
Thank you for your comment! 😊
Can a US citizen buy a vacation home in these places? Florida is rolled out as winteroseca says their is a mold. Any more problem any one knows about in any other listed countries. Delusional Bubble your thoughts?
Yes Sir. You’ll get full ownership of the house you purchase in all of these countries.
Personally, I have an eye on Turkey. I’d like to buy a property in Antalya, but I know that online prices are over exaggerated and that I need to be there physically to do some search about the real value of the property.
How about you? Are you planning to buy a vacation home?
My favorite place would be spring like all year around.
Read this post then.
Definitely my dream to have property in another country! Just not at a time in my life where I can pursue that yet. I’m kind of surprised that Florida is popular because mould is a big problem in houses. In fact, you legally have to have your house inspected for mould every year and do whatever you need to do to get rid of it. I certainly can’t live in Florida because I have a mould allergy
That’s right, but it’s still a lot of people’s dream to buy a place in Florida, because of how Hollywood pictures it for outsiders!
But since when has Hollywood got anything right? Lol
Whenever my non American/Canadian friends abroad talk about America, I go like 🤐
Haha! Well, if people play into stereotypes, I have no qualms about correcting them. I have been stereotyped and worse here in the US thanks to living in England and/or having an accent so I get mad whenever that happens
I see. I usually don’t correct them because the chances of them moving to the US is slim and I don’t want them to give up on the idea of greener grass! That’s called hope, right? Lol
I have my reasons for correcting stereotypes, plus, I believe in being honest. My philosophy is “Hate me now. Love me later.”
