Hi Nuno, 
I also have some property for rent in Belgium (Antwerp).
Now I am thinking about doing a first flipping project. Any experience with it in Belgium?
I want to try it because it gives a quicker cash-return, which might allow me to buy my next multifamily quicker. 

Greetings, Lucas

Hey Lucas, goedenavond :D

Well, short answer is no. I still don't own properties in Belgium, only one in Portugal. I need some time more to build a reputation in the bank, I'm planning in the middle of next year, start here also.

Let's see :)

Sorry not being much help still...

Yes, you can bet the opportunities in Portugal are far better than here in Belgium.
With the money of an modest house you can buy an apartment building...
