Buying a property abroad?


When buying a property abroad, it is common (unfortunately) that buyers do not pay close enough attention to the ever-changing currency exchange rate. Often attention is paid to mortgage rates, solicitor’s fees and agency commissions and yet, it is the exchange rate that can cause the most pain.

In a three month period (especially in the current economic climate), it is possible to see exchange rates fluctuate as much as 10 percent. A 10% change in the price of a property equates to a staggering amount of money, especially if you consider how long it takes to earn, let alone save it..! 
By contacting SGM-FX, buyers can remove the risk of this unfavourable expense. As soon as you are looking at properties, you should contact us to gain an unbiased insight into the currency market. Not only will we be able to guide you to the best exchange rates, but also remove the risk of the exchange rate moving against your property price.
