The Lost Art of Retiring

Retiring in a faraway land is not just for the rich and famous. Regular, hardworking, well-deserving people can retire in a tropical paradise for the same price or (usually) less then the home you’re currently living in. Just think, no more backbreaking snow removal or scraping the ice off your windshield. Instead, a fresh, cool breeze floating in off the ocean at sunrise and happy-hour margaritas in a little beach bar while the last of the day’s sun warms you. Everyone should be so lucky!

Everyone can be so lucky.

Where International makes it easy for you to choose a dream retirement location that will tick all your boxes, but not break the bank. Do you prefer it to be spring-like or hot? Do you like the sand and surf or do you prefer lush forest and babbling rivers? We have destinations that will suit everyone’s taste and just as important, budget.

These articles are designed to inspire, educate and inform you about living and/or retiring internationally.

We’re taught from an early age to accept that we can’t have everything we want… that we have to share or compromise. Thankfully, now that you’re an adult, and you’re considering a property purchase abroad, these ‘rules’ don’t apply.

Where International exists to recommend a variety of International real estate options. Where International requires developers to meet stringent criteria before offering them to you. Conversely, any inspections we conduct on projects or individuals should not be misinterpreted as a guarantee by Where International. International real estate is not immune to the ups and downs that occur in North American real estate; property values are never guaranteed to increase.

Where International is not accountable for the orchestration or deliverance of Discovery Weekends. We provide them to you on behalf of our developer partners. We recommend that you purchase travel insurance, as you would with any trip out of your home country. In addition, we advise you complete your own due diligence, purchase title insurance and always use a local attorney to assist with all transactions. In the event that a reader purchases a property from a recommended developer, Where International receives a sum from the developer.
