We recently published a podcast on our platforms to explain how to buy property in Mauritius as a foreigner. The article serves to help South Africans and residents from other countries to invest in freehold real estate in Mauritius.
An island that’s one of the ten most peaceful countries in the world with a stable political system, an African success story, one of New York Times’ places where history is being made, and (most importantly) filled with very nice, clever people of all origins and belief systems.
If you’re not so concerned about finance or the state of politics, of course, there’s always the question – do you really want to spend another damp, drizzly Northern-hemisphere summer, or freezing winter? Listen to this podcast to learn how to buy property in Mauritius as a foreigner.
How can a foreigner buy property in Mauritius? What are the common questions you should ask yourself?
- What kind of property am I buying? From whom? For what?
- Do I need the Mauritian residence permit?
- Am I willing to buy off-plan? Or do I want to buy ready-to-live-in real estate on the island?
- Who am I buying from?
- How much should I invest? Lifestyle or buy to let?
