Request for new forum: Investing internationally

3 Replies

Can I request a new forum? I've seen a lot of chatter in various places on the topic of investing internationally - it might be nice to consolidate it into a single forum. There are lots of special issues when it comes to international (currency risk, legal issues, foreign taxes and tax credits, different countries laws and opportunities, etc.) that would make this a very useful forum.

Hi @Ari Bachrach . I'm happy to create new forums, but we have two International forums already. One is called International Real Estate, and is for discussing investing outside the US. The other is called Foreigners Buying in the USA and is for non-US citizens to discuss investing here.

So I think we  have what you're looking for, but if not, please elaborate further and I'll see what I can do to accommodate you.

That's exactly what I was looking for, thank you.

However, I'm still not seeing it show up in the forum list, and I'm suddenly wondering if there are other forums I'm missing too. When I go to the forum menu I select the local real estate tab, and I see a second menu which contains links for a few states (TX, FL, CA, NJ), and a link for all local, which is a link to this page: https://www.biggerpockets.com/forums/86-local-real-estate-networking. I don't see a mention of the international forums. I'm sure this is just a UI thing that I'm not comprehending, but other than your direct links, how would I find those forums? 

@Ari Bachrach , if you're trying to create a new thread in those forums, click "Start a Discussion" in the upper right corner of the site, and then search for the categories using "International" or "Foreigners" and the forums will appear in the list.

If you're just looking to read the forums, I am also not able to find them, so I'm going to check with the developers.
