Amazing real estate with park view in Panama for luxury accommodation
Buying property abroad is an excellent investment but it can be quite challenging. Acquiring a property, whether it’s for personal purposes or to obtain rental income is always difficult. If we add to this the fact that we are buying in a different country, we understand why this can be a hassle.
If you have the funds to invest in a rental property overseas, don’t let these challenges stop you. There are ways in which processes can be simplified and it helps if you have a helping hand in the country. Next, take a look at Mundo’s guide on overseas property investment.
What to consider when buying investment property abroad
Research as much as you can about the country
This is important for your investment in various ways. Usually, if you are thinking about buying an apartment in a specific country, you probably know a few things about it. However, at the risk of sounding too obvious, we want to highlight some important points.
Firstly, think about the economic side of your investment. It’s always advisable to invest in a country with a history of pro-business policies and with a steady political environment. In general, these countries have a low inflation rate and are friendly to foreign investors, making them the ideal places to buy luxury real estate abroad.
Let’s take the example of Panama. It’s not a coincidence that Mundo offers real estate options here: this is a country with a steady dollarized economy that has implemented numerous incentives for all kinds of businesses. This has had a very positive impact on the real estate market, especially since Panama receives many foreign employees and business owners that want to establish in Panama.
In such a scenario, you know that your property has a high chance of appreciation in the mid-and-long term. This is also excellent when it comes to owning rental property abroad as the country has many visitors and new residents coming. Needless to say that you can also get excellent returns by renting to tourists.
Know the ownership legislation
Some countries have restrictions on foreign ownership. Luckily, this is not the case in Panama. On the contrary, they even implemented their own version of the European golden visa in 2020, according to which a foreigner can access immediate permanent residency by buying real estate.
Another vital aspect to consider is the ownership legislation, especially if you want to buy rental properties overseas. While some legislations are in favor of the owner, others are in favor of the tenant. So, make sure the country you choose is included in the first group. After all, if you are going through all this trouble, you want to make sure that your investment will be profitable and that your rights are duly protected.
Find out what are your financing options
Unless you can buy the property upfront, you need to consider financing options. Find out whether banks grant credit lines to foreigners and what are the conditions and interests.
When it comes to Panama, foreign citizens can get real estate loans and some developers offer financing options after you pay a percentage of the property in advance. If the project is still under construction you can get it at the construction price which is highly convenient and then, once built, pay the installments using the rental income.

Make sure to consider your tax liability
At this point, Mundo can also help you as we have experts in tax optimization among our staff. Further advice is to be provided during a personal interview, however, there are universal principles that apply.
Firstly, you have to consider the following:
- Tax liabilities in the country where you are a resident or citizen.
- Tax liabilities in the country where your foreign property is.
- Tax liabilities in any other country where you may be taxable.
If you live in, say, Spain, and buy a property in Panama, you may be subject to paying taxes for this property in Spain. Moreover, some countries apply taxes even if you don’t live there. For example, if you live in Spain but hold an American green card or passport, you’ll also be subject to taxes in the United States.
Your investment country may also apply taxes on property, and this is something you need to consider carefully. The same goes for rental income or capital gains. In Panama, for example, you’ll find that the real estate taxes are quite low when compared with other jurisdictions. Here, properties whose value is less than 120,000 USD are tax-free and other properties pay between 0.5% and 0.7% (only for a family’s primary residency). Vacation or commercial property can pay between 0.6% and 1%.
Create an exit strategy
No matter how safe it seems, no investment is 100% secure. If you regret buying your property, make sure that you have a Plan B. At this point, you need to analyze the market both historically and the future trends. If the market is too overcrowded you won’t be able to sell in case you want to give your portfolio a new shift.
