I really think in the current Global meltdown, that only an estate agent (on high commissions) would be pushing so called new or emerging markets. There are no good Eurozone markets for Brits while Sterling remains weak!
No market is a safe or a sure way to make money at present and possibly only fools and their money would be parted by smooth talkers.
There are strong reasons to avoid Real Estate TV (often 4-5 years out of date) and other relocation prorammes as well as glossy newspaper adds, and deceptive Property Shows, probably well avoided for some years.
You don’t hear of the pitfalls until you have paid your stage payments (also to be avoided), by then it’s often too late. If it sounds too good to be true, IT IS!!!!!! 😉
