The ‘Rent Out Your Home and Live Overseas’ Experiment

I’d heard about lots of people who sold, or rented out their home to go and live like kings somewhere cheap overseas. It sounded like something I wanted to know more about.

We looked at our situation and decided we could afford to semi-retire, only work 6 months a year, if we rented out our home and lived somewhere cheap for 6 months of the year. Not perfect, but better than the alternative (full-time work).

What follows is the outline of steps to achieving this plan and how it went in practice.
