Offshore Mortgages an Underused Investment Option

Offshore Mortgages an Underused Investment Option

Property and real estate options, such as offshore mortgages, have always been a popular choice for investors both large and small. While the price of property may fluctuate over the years, the need for it rarely changes. So if you’re an investor seeking the relative stability of land or property ownership, consider offshore mortgages.

What is an offshore mortgage?

Offshore mortgages involve the purchase of land in a country other than your own. There are several advantages to offshore mortgages, the main one being that it allows you to take advantage of low property values in other countries. In the U.S., for instance, the real estate market has taken a severe hit in recent years. The housing market fell by approximately $3.5 trillion in 2008 and about $480 billion during most of 2009. While this was obviously bad news for U.S. homeowners, those seeking offshore mortgages found an attractive opportunity.

UK investors seeking offshore mortgages in the U.S. will find many properties with a 15-year fixed rate mortgage that is as low as it has been in decades. In addition, 30-year mortgages are also tumbling back to rates that haven’t been seen in decades. These facts have attracted a large number of investors yet many high quality properties still remain,

Non-UK residing natives can benefit

In addition to purchasing offshore mortgages in the U.S., UK residents living abroad can also take advantage of purchasing properties in the UK itself, provided they are living abroad. The purchase can be a major tax benefit for UK expats as it can help them avoid bringing money back into the country, where it will be subject to high taxes. In addition, the interest earned on offshore mortgages in the UK is paid from income not earned in the UK, which could result in as much as a 40 percent reduction in mortgage interest costs.

Offshore mortgages can be an attractive and lucrative option to your financial portfolio, offer the chance for additional income and tax benefits. It’s an investment option that is definitely worth exploring.
