    Hi everyone,

    I have been a print finishing manager for the past 30yrs. I am now retired through ill health, and am moving to Goa in the next 12 months. We have a place at Culva beach that our friend is now building for us. When I ask Richard about residency and general information he says don?t worry, but I would like to find some things out for myself. We would welcome any information on residency and any pitfalls that may occur.

    Lots of Thanks

    Hey lukas,
    I agree with Mitzyboy. Have you already purchased the property? As I understand foreign nationals can't buy unless they set up a company.
    We too are planning on moving to Goa in the near future, have written to organizations about residency and purchasing property. I've been trying to find information from expats too.

    A colleague went to Goa yesterday, says his friends have been living there for a few years. I've given him a list of questions to ask his friends if I get any useful information I will let you know.
    Thank you

    How about investing in Goa property?

    There are lots of option. You can buy plot, flat, villa. If we buy a 2 BHK flat in panaji it will cost you 10 lacs. If you opt for a beach side flat then the SFT price increases to Rs2500/- to 3000/- per SFT because of tourist. Most of the appt, villas are given for rent when they are near to beaches. Not all the beaches are famous. We found Baga and calagute beaches are the most famouse among all other beaches.Calangute comes under gram panchyat and the roads are very narrow. In the evening you can experience the traffic jam.2 years back prices were less but it's totally different now. When you buy a appt / villa near beach there would be huge maintenance cost due to humid weather.At this moment we are really confused whether we should invest in Goa or not?One taxi driver was telling recently Govt has decided that people only from Goa can buy land in Goa. In that we can't buy land in Goa. The same is in Himachal Pradesh. This is really stupid. When we pay tax, some part of it goes to these state also. Then as an India we should be able to buy land in all the places in India.What do you think? please share your though with us.

    Hi there,

    we just spent 1 month in Goa (october) and would like to move out there for good one day. We have spoken to quite a few expats and they pretty much all said to be very careful when buying in Goa. The deeds are very old and dates from the portuguese times. It is quite complicated as it is hard to find out who the real owners are.
    We're going back to Goa in march and gona try to find out more.
