Don’t Make This Big Mistake When Moving Overseas

The cost of living overseas can be an overwhelming factor to think about, even with the low cost of living in Central American locations like Belize or Nicaragua, and the inexpensive European country of Bulgaria.

After you finally make it abroad, or even before you get there, you will more than likely have to move money overseas, whether it’s for an investment, buying a home, or supporting your cost of living.

One thing you have to think about when moving money overseas is the exchange rate, the currency of your home country compared to that of the new country, which can be a burden that many people see as necessary. What many don’t know is that it doesn’t have to be as much of a hassle if you go about it the right way.

Most people who need to move money from one country to another simply wire funds from their home bank to a foreign bank account, but there is a solution that can save you tens of thousands of dollars.

Foreign exchange specialists, also known as currency specialists, can offer better exchange rates on transfers than banks. Though the difference is only a few cents, over time that small amount of money adds up.

To put it in perspective, let’s take a look at a real life scenario. Imagine you find yourself in the beautiful country of Spain and you decide to stay long-term, you’ll obviously need to purchase a home. To buy your dream home in your dream country, you need to move €200,000 from the U.S. If you choose to send the funds directly from your bank in the States, it’s going to cost you $242,000 USD due to the exchange (€1 = $1.21 USD), plus a $40 transfer fee.

By taking an alternative route, you can save a lot of money. With the aid of a currency specialist, the same transaction could cost you only $232,000 USD. That’s a $10,000 difference!

This is possible because currency specialists use a more accurate, and more attractive, exchange rate for the euro. In this example, €1 amounts to $1.16 USD. The difference is only 5 cents per dollar, but like I said earlier, those 5 pennies can really add up!
