Property Guides, created by the Overseas Guides Company (OGC) is a free, impartial resource for anyone looking to buy property abroad or to move overseas.

The Overseas Guides Company vision is to be the essential resource of expertise for people buying property or moving overseas. We aim to inspire, assist and empower you on your overseas property journey, making the overseas buying process far more simple, pleasant and straightforward.

Interest in moving and buying overseas has increased to the highest levels since before the economic crisis. We are committed to helping our readers at every stage of the overseas buying or moving process, having helped thousands of people over the past ten years to buy safely overseas. We help our readers through sharing high quality information, resources, ongoing support and by connecting them with the very best experts in the overseas property market, ensuring the best possible team of professionals is on their side when purchasing overseas.

I just wanted to say how grateful I was to have the information I’d read in the guide long before I came over. It went as smoothly as if I was just moving within a few streets in the same town! Your advice meant I didn’t have to ‘scout around’ but merely decide the best option within registered professionals.

Property Guides News and Content

Fortnightly newsletters/blogs: Property Guides produces fortnightly newsletters/blogs covering 13 of the main countries where the British like to buy. Each is written by a native British writer living in or closely associated with that country. These are chatty and readable, a friendly “voice on the ground” offering advice to readers. It also produces one newsletter per fortnight dedicated to other countries.

Daily news: As well as the newsletters/blogs, in-country writers and the team in London also report on any and all aspects of the overseas property market, as it happens. It could be new off-season airline routes to Greek islands, property price rises in the Florida property market, changes to inheritance laws in Spain.

News features: Each week we write a news feature, a more in-depth look at an issue of interest to our readership. Recent examples include the 20 Best Schools in Europe, the Most Affordable Properties in the World, the OGC Guide to Brexit.

Special Guides: These are specialist guides for download, 3,000-5,000 words long, covering the most important aspects of ownership and emigration abroad and allowing our readers to choose a location to buy based on their individual circumstances. Recent and forthcoming subjects cover healthcare, golden visas and ownership rights.
