I’m European American. I am based in the US East Coast and have property here. Yes, I am self-employed with a location independent job.
At the same time, I would be interested in purchasing a small condo in Western Europe.
My goal with the property: Is to go there for few months every year, to party and have fun, use the property as my hub to go to other European countries to visit, then come back to America and rent out the property, during the months I’m not there.
Just to clarify: If I were to buy, I’d try to buy it in full, not mortagage. This is primarily a lifestyle purchase.
I have a few cities in mind: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Frankfurt. However, if Western Europe is not convenient I am open to consider Eastern Europe.
However, before settling with any specific city I would like to hear from people who have purchase apartments in these and other Western European countries. I know there’s lot of factors that might go into this decision(picking the right city) so I would like to hear those who have done this type of purchase before.
