It has often been perceived that real estate investing is safer if you purchase in your local area. However, technology has made this less of an issue and initiatives such as crowd-sourcing make this an even more attractive proposal.
From an initial investment of only £5,000 down you can get a stake in a small family property or for a larger sum you can gain access to much larger commercial acquisitions.
Returns on investment are very attractive and easily outperform the stock markets regularly.
So if you are a real estate investor with liquid assets to invest then maybe looking further afield is now a desirable alternative.
Of course it goes without saying that you must do your due diligence with respect to costs, tax liabilities etc. but this does look an attractive opportunity for local real estate investors to spread their wings further afield.
