The next step to your own personal paradise: buying a home by the sea


Are you someone who likes to escape the stress of everyday life from time to time and prefers to always travel to the same holiday destination? Then maybe it is time to invest in your own property at your destination of choice. A second home abroad guarantees a relaxed holiday atmosphere and allows you to get to know your favourite holiday region from the inside out. Due to the increasing demand for real estate in the Mediterranean region, a second home is more than merely a comfortable holiday domicile at your preferred holiday destination – often it can also generate attractive financial returns.

Whatever your motives are for wanting a second home, choosing the right home and getting professional advice will ensure that you will never regret purchasing a second home abroad.

In our brochure “Your Private Piece of Summer” we have put together an exclusive selection of attractive properties from the Mediterranean region to help you with your personal property search. If you would like to get an idea of the diverse range of properties available in the Mediterranean region, we invite you to read our article “The Fascination of a Home by the Sea”.

How you too can benefit from a home by the sea

Apart from how a home by the sea can benefit you personally, renting out your property also has great income potential. A welcome side effect: Searching for a property for renting out is not any more difficult than searching for a property for only yourself. After all, potential tenants will be looking for more or less the same in a holiday home as you: a well maintained outdoor area, an appealing interior and proximity to popular tourist attractions will make your property attractive for future tenants.

Especially when searching for a perfect second home, the location is absolutely decisive. Properties in direct proximity to the sea generally boast a special atmosphere, magnificent panoramic views and idyllic surroundings.
