How does Tailor My Property get paid? 

We don't charge our clients any fees. Instead, we have a range of third party partners with whom we have established terms of business. The relationships we've built with these third parties grant Tailor My Property early access to releases and properties available at a discount. If there are any fees that clients need to pay to our third parties for their professional services, these will be outlined from the start. 

Why should I use Tailor My Property instead of doing everything by myself? 

 

From our experience, choosing an overseas property from a wide range of options can be daunting, as are the technical details of the purchasing process. At Tailor My Property, we offer our clients exclusive, filtered property options that are often otherwise inaccessible on online platforms. We take you through the entire process step-by-step from sourcing to mortgages rates and even furnishing. Our expertise applies to the entire process of buying a property overseas – creating a one-stop-shop to make the process easy and stress-free for our clients. By allowing us to expertly select the right options for you (without even charging you a fee) and investigating the best property financing solutions ,the process of investing in property is immensely simplified. 


What's wrong with me just finding a property online and buying it?  

 

There is nothing wrong with taking this route when buying an overseas property. However, there can be numerous complicated processes and hidden associated steps and expenses when purchasing a property on your own. We aim to simplify the process for you and, in doing so, reduce some of the cost and stress. 


 

I've already found a property I like, can I still make use of Tailor My Property’s services?  

Absolutely! We are here to find solutions for your every need and can help with any part of the process. 

 

​Should I only buy a property somewhere that I know?  

People often tend to only buy property in places they're familiar with, and this is understandable. However, at Tailor My Property we believe unfamiliarity shouldn't detract you from buying in strong markets. To mitigate this lack of comfort when it comes to buying overseas, we’ve teamed up with local partners in major markets to add valuable local insight and to guide you through all facets of the investment process. We also keep clients up to speed on any new developments coming out of these markets, and keep you up to date with your property and investment performance.  

There are very competitive mortgage options advertised online on comparison websites, will these be available to me? 

The interest rates available online can vary widely for domestic borrowers versus non-residents, as they can for owner-occupiers and buy-to-let property investors. Online mortgage rates typically show rates from lenders who exclusively lend to domestic buyers and the lowest rates are often for owner-occupiers. These are not available to expats and non- domestic residents who may chance upon these lenders online. Despite this, there are many other options not accessible online that we have access to, and can identify as the best suited and most competitive for our clients' specific circumstances.
