Property investors and emerging markets
CEO of Nicholas Marr ‘We are proud to present properties from regions that are new to overseas property investors. We have been offering off plan investment property in Beirut Lebanon for example and Nicaragua serves to further excite those investors that can foresee profits in their sites. Property investors know that your profits are made on the purchase these regions offer exceptional pricing. Our experience shows that the more exotic regions attract Irish property investors and I think Nicaragua will be the same. Seasoned Irish overseas property investors seem to be prepared to go that extra mile for investment opportunities.’
