Buy a multi-unit property, says Angelo Cinel, CEO of WIRE consulting, whose advisers specialize in international real estate services. Use one as your residence and rent out the others. Rents can pay for your investment. You can also sell the units at a premium when the market grows.

With the right consultant in many locations, you can finance locally with a loan up to 50 percent of the property’s value, lowering your initial investment and risk.

If you buy the property when you’re younger, your rental income can pay off loans so that when you’re ready to retire, the property will be free to use, he says. You can still rent out units to earn a passive income.
