More and more Brits are being attracted to the expat way of life and are emigrating for an exciting fresh start. If you are thinking of becoming one of these go-getters, there are some important things you should consider before making the big move to ensure that when you do, it all runs as smoothly as possible:


Selling your current property and at the same time finding a new home in your destination country can be a difficult task, especially given the state of the UK property market at the moment. Property buyers, such as Gateway Homes, can help you sell your property fast so you can get on with your move as soon as possible.


Almost a third of employees are considering leaving the country within the next five years in pursuit of better career prospects. It is a good idea to have a guaranteed job waiting for you upon your arrival rather than looking for work when you’re out there as this is much less risky.


Finally, before making the move, assess your finances and the cost of emigrating. Work out whether it is financially feasible and make sure that you are going to have sufficient resources to enjoy your new life when you reach your destination.
