BEFORE you choose where to move house next, looking further afield could help your bank balance.
A number of destinations around the world are paying people to live and work there – with some locations being on beautiful islands around the world.
Many of the locations are looking to increase their dwindling population, be it with young couples of families.
Others are wanting to improve a certain industry sector of jobs, such as entrepreneurs or start ups.
Some are offering up to £32,000 to move to a new location, with beautiful countries such as Italy, Greece and the US on the list.

The only catch is you must become a resident, along with a house and a job of at least €7,500 (£6,700)a day.
Also in Italy, Sicily offered homes for just €1 (90p), with the only catch being the amount that had to be paid to renovate them.
