Kotor Montenegro, Why we own a home here. (American Expat Retirement in Europe 2021)

We bought our home in Kotor Montenegro in 2016, we were enchanted by this medieval city from first sight. With the low cost of living, Mediterranean climate, UNESCO Heritage designation, and it’s popularity as a tourist destination for Eastern Europeans and the British it made perfect sense to buy here. As we travel Europe over the next 5 to 10 years we will be using our home in Montenegro as our home base, rest assured our journey is not ending.

We have used AirBnb to rent out our home in the past, we have decided that we are going to be more selective about who stays in our home going forward. While we are away traveling we will rent our home to our viewers anticipating there will be more respect and care when staying in our home. We will rent the home in month long blocks, if you are staying less time you can still stay but you would be renting for the month.

Do you want to live abroad as an Expat? Are you looking for affordable and viable options? We are exploring the world to see what it’s like to live in a country, and also discover if Residency is an option.

We began our retirement in March of 2020 with the intent to travel the world, spending 1-3 months in a country or location. We want to see what it’s like to live there and not simply visit, and we want to share these experiences and the costs with whoever wishes to follow along.

If your looking for a place in Europe to live or retire Montenegro may be an option, stay tuned and follow along.

We will make a commission on these links, your rates are not impacted.

Julie and I retired early not by luck but by planning.
One of our spokes to our wheel for savings, and now an income stream
is Fundrise. Basically we are invested in many apartment complexes around the country.
We get a portion of the rents in the form of dividends, and growth in value with the appreciation
of the properties. We currently have selected an income REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust)
which historically pays between 7.5% – 9% annually in dividends. You can chose a balanced REIT which has a split between appreciation and dividends or a REIT where it’s focused on appreciation and not dividends.
Check it out to see if it’s a fit for your savings, or retirement strategy. Feel free to share this with those you feel may benefit from this program.

  1. Insightful gentleman sharing valuable knowledge.
    Very big thank you from myself and I'm sure many others for every video.
    PS, Like to see the costs associated so thank you, let's see the social life's of locals in the evenings while you both enjoy being around the local community.
    Kind regards from Robbie Hughes NZ

  2. Great video, thanks for posting ! I am from Croatia and I have been in Montenegro numerous times always enjoying in this beautiful country. Who knows, maybe I do the same in future like you guys. I wanted to ask you about expats community in the Kotor area. I know Montenegro is very attractive for russians and many of them are living in the coastal area. So I am just curious are there in Kotor area more westerners or russians ? Thanks !

  3. Love the videos. We want to travel for retirement in Eastern Europe. I wished your Ohrid deal would have worked. Could you give us an idea on the smoking conditions in restaurants in the countries you have been recently? We would like to avoid countries where it is allowed in restaurants.

  4. Thanks for showing your home, I am a bit surprised that US citizens made an effort to discover that amazing bay and medieval town of Kotor. I can say I know every mile of coast from there to Venice, dozen of places are to consider for retirement, but Kotor is at the top. I am most likely going to settle in west Istria, may be a bit more expensive and less medieval beauty, but less remote and well connected to the rest of Europe.

  5. The town was first mentioned in 168 BC and was settled during Ancient Roman times, when it was known as Acruvium, Ascrivium, or Ascruvium. During the Byzantine era it was called Dekatera or Dekadero meaning Ten Gates, from ancient Greek words "Deka + Thira" for "Ten" + "Gate".
