We were thrilled to recently send several of our team members to the A Place in the Sun Live 2017 NEC Birmingham Overseas Property Exhibition.
A Place in the Sun began as a Channel 4 television program in the UK back in 2000, and it’s grown into the UK’s leading overseas property media brand. Today, A Place in the Sun Live is the brand’s official exhibition and the biggest overseas property exhibit in Europe.
The 2017 event drew more than 150 exhibitors and over 7,000 property hunters. In addition to real estate agents, experts from the tax, financial, and legal industries were on hand to answer questions for house hunters. Our HBI team members brought their extensive knowledge and expertise in foreign investment into US property, taxes, and mortgages to the table and happily helped countless attendees better understand their options as they seek to invest in US and Florida property.
Alan Harding, Susan Harding, and Geoff Hammond fielded a wide range of questions from prospective property buyers, while HBI mortgage broker Rob Farmer advised them on US loans and helped guide them through the mortgage maze. We were also honored to contribute an article presenting an overview of foreign investment into Florida property to A Place in the Sun magazine.
We had a great time at the exhibition, and extend our thanks to A Place in the Sun for organizing such an informative, helpful event. And thanks to the thousands of attendees for their enthusiasm. We look forward to returning in 2018!
