Fractional Ownership - An Innovative New Tool20 March 2018
 This would be an ideal property for fractional purposes
Buying an overseas property is a substantial investment and most people will only be able to use their property for 2-3 months of the year, for a much smaller investment you will be the part owner in a possibly more expensive and luxurious property but will not have to pay the full upkeep, taxes for a full 52 weeks. This is where Fractional Ownership comes in...

Turkey's market may be set for a turnaround this year01 February 2017
 Turkey Golden Visa
Turkey's property market may be set for a turnaround this year, as the country introduces a new Golden Visa-style scheme to encourage foreign investment. The new citizenship law, announced earlier this month, will mean that foreigners who invest in property worth at least $1 million and hold it for a minimum of three years will be eligible for Turkish citizenship. Alternatively, an eligible foreign investor can either make a fixed capital investment in Turkey worth at least $2 million, buy $3 million worth of government bonds or deposit the same amount in a Turkish bank, or create jobs within Turkey.

Indonesia eyes property boost with slash in sales tax01 January 2017
Indonesia is aiming to boost its property market with a new slash in sales tax. From September 2016, new laws mean that sellers of homes will have to pay a 2.5 per cent tax on the sales price – half the current 5 per cent. For those with homes smaller than 36 square metres, that rate will be an even lower 1 per cent.

New Phuket terminal doubles airport capacity28 November 2016
 Phuket Airport
Phuket's airport has opened a brand new international terminal that doubles its passenger capacity. The new terminal was opened by Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha and is part of a 5.14-billion-baht plan to expand the airport, the four-storey development will double the airport's passenger capacity from 6.5 million passengers per year to 12.5 million.

The rise of the Philippines14 September 2016
 Rise of the Philippines
The Philippines has been another rising star of 2016, with the country re-entering the Top 5 destinations on in July. This is the third time the islands have appeared in the Top 10 this year. With both the Philippines and UAE removed from the unfolding EU situation, will they become new hotspots for post-Brexit investors, or is July's rising interest just driven by strong opportunities?

Indonesia eyes property boost with slash in sales tax14 September 2016
Indonesia is aiming to boost its property market with a new slash in sales tax. New laws from this month will mean that sellers of homes will have to pay a 2.5 per cent tax on the sales price half the current 5 per cent. For those with homes smaller than 36 square metres, that rate will be an even lower 1 per cent. The head of Indonesia's tax office said the measure is to support the property sector and to help aid purchasing power because one of the people's primary need is to own a house. With the central bank recently announcing plans to ease down payment requirements for financing, Indonesia's new measures are intended to boost the country's residential property market. Sales rose by 4 per cent in Q2 2016 from Q1 2016, when they increased 1.51 per cent quarter-on-quarter, according to Bank Indonesia.

Cyprus slashes property transfer fees and taxes07 August 2016
Cyprus has slashed its immovable property tax and transfer fees, moves that are set to boost investment in the island's real estate. The cut in Immovable Property Tax was voted through by the government this summer, reducing the levy to just a quarter of its former value with the tax then being scrapped altogether from the start of 2017. The tax will be based on the 1980 values of properties.

Vancouver is introducing a new tax for foreign property buyers03 August 2016
The tax, which will came into effect from 2nd August 2016, will see non-resident investors in Canadian real estate face an additional 15 per cent fee. The tax will apply to residential purchases in Metro Vancouver, effectively generating an additional CAD300,000 for every property bought for CAD2 million or CAD1.5 million for a property worth CAD10 million. The levy will also apply to corporations purchasing property. While the British Colombia authorities will have the authority to examine the citizenship of directors of the relevant companies, and the beneficiaries of any corporate profits, though, individual buyers will otherwise be required to self-report their nationality and provide a social insurance number. As yet it is unclear whether a resident with citizenship could buy a property by proxy for a family member living abroad, indeed, the exact methods of policing and enforcement are yet to be confirmed.

The Turkish city of Bursa could become the countrys new hotspot10 June 2016
The Turkish city of Bursa could become the country's new property hot spot, following the completion of a landmark new bridge over the Marmara Sea. Bursa is Turkeys fourth largest city and is currently the third most popular in terms of foreign property purchases. The city offers an alternative to the high-profile city, with the added bonus of offering skiing at nearby Mount Uludag. The 3.3-kilometre Izmit Bay suspension bridge links Gebze, just east of Istanbul, with the southern shore of the Marmara Sea. It forms part of the new, six-lane Istanbul-Izmir highway, which connects Bursa, including its coastal suburbs, to Istanbul. The new bridge and motorway will reduce drive-time between Istanbuls Sabiha Airport and the eastern part of the Bursa Province to under an hour.
