My wife loves the real estate channel all the time and the people that appear on this show puzzle the shit out of me. The only thing I can imagine is they are hiding the truth, but then why go on TV? Or they just want to be on TV or something.
1.No one has a specific job, they are all freelance consultants and similar vagueness, but they obviously have quite a bit of money even though many are rather young.
2.They are often unaware of even basic laws and conditions in the country they intent to move to, there was one where the husband expected to be able to cheaply buy a house in Paris within sight of the Eiffel Tower and found out they couldn’t even afford to rent in a far Paris suburb. I can remember one or two where the real estate agent explains a local law that only citizens can own property or whatever, did they do ANY research?
3.How do they navigate immigration? Contrary to popular fantasy most countries have rules and regs as tight as the USA or worse, unless they are buying property they don’t intend to reside in.
4.Sometimes it really doesn’t make sense at all, like a young couple that decided to purchase property in a country with recent governmental instability that had chased out all foreigners. They said everyone said they were crazy to do that, no shit. I could understand easier if it was the native country of one of them or something, but nope they have no ties there at all.
