Buying an investment property in another country, and especially a country with a different language, can be an intimidating proposition. But it doesn't have to be. Just ask author Nathan Brown, who has not only bought property in Czech Republic for himself, but has also, since 2004, assisted hundreds of investors to do so. In this book, Nathan takes you step-by-step through the entire investment process with an eye to maximizing your return. Topics covered include:
- The current status of property ownership by non-Czech citizens
- Tips on the best locations to buy in Prague, Brno, Ostrava and Pardubice
- How to get the best offers from banks for financing or refinancing an investment property
- Tax strategies for the purchase and sale of investment properties
- How to create a rental contract that avoids the headache of the Czech landlord/tenant laws
- Real life horror stories of purchases gone bad and how you can avoid the same plight.
