About us

Welcome to Europe Properties

We are a specialist, “disruptive” pan-European property portal who help international buyers realise their dream property in the most desirable European locations.

We help clients find their dream property, whether that be for a holiday home, investment/rental property, home for retirement, family home or relocation property.

You will find the very latest listings of properties and a vast amount of information that you may require when buying an overseas property or if you are considering moving abroad.

This information bank includes articles on everything from lifestyle to taxation in the European countries that we cover. Here at Europe Properties our team have lived and worked in multiple countries, or own properties in at least one other European country.

We like to share our experiences both positive and negative of living abroad, working abroad and owning property. To this end we invite enquiries from you not just on buying European properties but also any other questions or queries on any aspect of living abroad. We also have our own personal experiences of overseas business start-ups and are happy to share this knowledge which can help you reap early benefits.

So, whether you are a seasoned expatriate or an individual contemplating their first overseas property acquisition, we hope you enjoy the content of our website and find the information useful. Of course, we welcome your feedback and comments.

Our directors & staff have combined experience in overseas property acquisitions, property finance/mortgage broking, accounting/tax advice and insurance placement.

We can provide property search guidance and introduction to legal advice practitioners, mortgage lenders and foreign currency exchange.

If you are looking for a pied-à-terre, villa, chateau/prestige property we can help you right now.

Europe Properties do not charge any fees to the client/buyer so you have no additional costs from enquiring through us or using any of our services. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
