I think you should do it. Have a house keeper and put it out on Airbnb when you don’t use it.

I would do, but there are tax/visa implications of doing this. Especially since I’d like to reside there for >6 months out of the year.

Don’t buy in France. A wealth tax comes in if you spend 6months + a year there.

I have an aunt who bought a home in Malta. Gorgeous country and beaches and buying property there gives you an easy path to dual citizenship so she now has an EU passport.

Former US employee with property in Spain. Not sure what your question is here?

You need to invest >300k or some decent amount for residency Can also visit with visa waiver Rest boils down to your employer. Im able to work remotely 8-12 days a month

Hey all, I find that in interviews I have so much content in my brain, examples, etc and I’d love to learn how to express things in a better way. Putting thought to mouth. I find that when expressing complex ideas, I put them in terms that don’t exactly reflect my true thought (such as over simplifying) and I end up underselling. My initial thought is to watch more content, read more to learn phrasing, etc but I’d love thoughts from seasoned professionals. Any tips welcome!
