Irish abroad: Have you bought a home overseas?

What was the bidding/offer process like? Is there more or less transparency than Ireland?

How does the process of bidding on and buying a home compare in other countries?

Have you experience of buying a home outside Ireland? What was the bidding/offer process like? Are there such things as “bidding wars”, sealed envelope bids, etc? Is there more or less transparency than the Irish system? Is “gazumping” a thing?

If you have been through the process, The Irish Times would like to hear about it. You can share your experience using this form. A selection of responses may be published as part of a feature article comparing the process of buying a home in different countries for the Property supplement.

Have you purchased a home overseas?

Please attach a photograph of yourself if you have one, and don’t forget to tell us a little about you, too - where you live, how long you have been there, and where and when you bought your house/apartment.

Thank you.
