I don't mean to brag but I can afford not to work in Poland and still get paid on a regular from all the properties I manage in Nigeria.
Great. I can do the same while scratching my nuts all day long. Big deal. You should get into shipping SUVs to W. Africa. That's where the money's at over there. Not managing mud hut tenants.
This will only happen when the landlord or agent doesn't want to work with a black skinned man like myself.
The issue isn't even that your black, although a lot of Polish people will be put off by that, but that combined with the fact that you simply don't know the market nor speak Polish. There is no reason for someone to go with a person who is foreign, doesn't know the market, doesn't speak Polish over someone who is a native/dual citizen, knows the market, and speaks Polish. And there's only so many W. Africans that actually want to live in Poland. Tourists somewhat, students a few, residents/citizens almost none.
I can buy the property in my wife's name or my brother in-laws name then resell the property to the client at a possibly higher price and still collect commission.
Very smart. Until you realize that strategy will always put you backwards due to the taxes that the buyer pays.
Oh and forget about buying any kind of land zoned agricultural.
It's 19% if sold before 5 years. If you add up all the taxes it's damn near 30%.
Also, depending on the situation with Brexit (assuming OP is a citizen of UK), OP may need to now get a special permit from government to buy property.
