When choosing which real estate project to invest in for a Citizenship by Investment (CBI) program, do your homework and due diligence like you would any other investment. Remember that just because the real estate projects are approved by the government, not all are equal.
The real estate programs are designed to help governments generate necessary foreign investment in their economies. So firstly, make sure you choose a project of an official government website. Second, make sure you qualify. Some countries disallow applicants from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Somalia, Yemen, and Sudan.
How to Begin Your Research
The credibility of developers is one of the first things to research. With some savvy digging around, you can find the history of the company. Find out what other projects have they done in the past and if the projects were completed on time. Also, look for any bad reviews or a bad reputation. Finally, try to find out if potential roadblocks exist with the development of the project. It would be wise to also look into the success of other projects built by the same developers to assess if your investment will be a success and maintain its value throughout the years.
All the projects have an investment timeline of between 3-7 years. Therefore, most applicants develop an exit strategy to implement when the time comes. So, another aspect of real estate investment that will affect your decision should be the resale potential in 3-7 years. Ask yourself, is this project attractive to the masses? Will it hold its value? Also, you will want to choose a project that will complete soon so that you don’t spend months or years anticipating your ROI.
