Value of diversification

One of the fundamental principles of investing is diversification. By spreading your investments into different places or categories, you reduce the risk that potential losses can "wipe you out".

If one or a few investments falter, the other investments usually won't, so you reduce your losses and might even absorb them by returns from other investments.

Value of property investing abroad

So, it makes sense to diversify your real estate investments by acquiring property abroad. But it's not as simple as it sounds. It is a sound principle per se, but going offshore with any investments always carries more risks, if only for not knowing the foreign market as well as you know the domestic one.

Having said all this though, going into property investing abroad has a huge potential, just as long as you're aware that risks are also huge. As with any investment, get to know your market, listen to other successful investors and exercise extreme caution until you start to understand how your chosen location's property market works.
