Are you looking to retire
overseas?  If so, you are not
alone.   Depressing British
weather, the recession and high prices are resulting in more and more people
buying property overseas for their retirement years.

But, where should you buy?  Yahoo and Castle Cover recently looked
at everything from rainfall to crime rates, healthcare (availability and cost),
tax and how much homes cost. And, they have come up with the top five overseas
locations to buy property for your retirement.  They are:

5. USA

Healthcare may not be the
cheapest in the USA but there are many other reasons to retire across the
pond.  Low house prices and cheap
petrol are two reasons, and you can choose a climate that you like.  Bask in the sun in California or
Florida or head to the snowy Rockies or Maine for a cooler climate. Find property in the USA here

With 27,000 British expats in
Barbados, you will certainly not be alone when you retire to the island.  Barbados also boasts virtually free
