The distributor also claims historically low interest rates and bargain property prices are making it more affordable to buy a property abroad.
Clare Nessling, director at Conti, said: “If brokers haven’t yet considered the overseas mortgage market as a source of additional income, it’s a great time to do so.
“There are plenty of British buyers taking advantage of the property bargains available abroad, and they’re more willing to explore overseas opportunities in their search for better potential returns on investment than they’re achieving in the UK.“
