Legal Real Estate and Development Transactions in Ecuador:

When informal business transactions were first recognized in Ecuador, the discussion focused on inefficient public institutions, cumbersome registration processes and a general distrust of the government – all factors that spur the creation of a market outside a country’s formal structures – does days are gone, Ecuador Real Estate Law enforcement is making its way into this new emerging economy.  If you put together all these new changes with a stable US Dollar economy, Ecuador becomes a great property investment location to live and retire.

Use to be that many locals and foreigners depended on informal Real Estate employment or businesses for a living, but informal employment has had serious consequences at the levels of both the individual and society. Beyond earning levels, informal employment makes OWNER, BUYER, AGENT ‘s basic legal rights vulnerable and difficult to defend.

The only real problem you may find will be the language barrier, there is a straight forward solution: translation services or bilingual proof services. Remember, there are many local Ecuadorians Professionals that speak English and Spanish fluently.

Do Not Pay Buyer’s Agent or Finder’s Fees!

Ecuador is in the process of strict regulation of its Real Estate Market and Development. For many years, Real Estate Developers, Service Providers, Agents, Locals and Foreigners Vendors, For Sale by Owner….. transactions have been mostly cash transfers due to the relaxed nature of informal transactions.

Business opportunities and potential in Ecuador, UK is targeting the city of Guayaquil.

There are a lot of things going on in Guayaquil these days. Lately, I have been trying to catch up with all the business and social meetings all at the same time. My challenge is to keep up with the local paste to provide you with accurate information.

One good side of this “on the go” is learning the art of mixing business with pleasure. The smart and fun part of living and working in this small part of the world is realizing that Ecuadorians, especially people from Guayaquil love to entertain and socialize while doing great business deals.

After this cultural introduction let me tell you the latest news in this place…

UK sees the city of Guayaquil as a market potential for investment and trade.
Mr. Tony Lamb, Head of UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) for Latin America, was in Ecuador 12 – 14 September to define UKTI’s operation in Ecuador and assess the market’s potential.

Guayaquil as part of his itinerary, and he meet with British business representatives settled in this city. Through the meeting, he found out that they are expanding and doing well in their business. Examples of some of those are Unilever and SAB Miller.

Mr. Lamb came to the conclusion of needing a greater presence in this part of the country. UK aims to increase its investments in Ecuador and will make more inroads in the market for Guayaquil.   Once in London, he will communicate to my authorities on the need to shift our resources from Quito to this city. Mr. Lamb also mentioned that UK Embassy colleagues agree that there are several business opportunities to explore here, at this new branch, they want to open new market opportunities for bilateral trade.

Such a great news for all of us that are investing in Ecuador, perfect timing and another good reason to add to the “Fiestas Octubrinas”. The city of Guayaquil – “La perla del Pacifico” is celebrating its independence day next Sunday the 9th.

There are a lot of cultural and social events this weekend. In my plans, I am starting the afternoon watching the soccer game as part of the selecting period for the “2014 World Cup in Brazil”, we will meet with friends for ceviche and beer. Later in the evening we all are going for some Salsa to the Duran Fair. Tomorrow I will visit the out door plazas with local painters exhibitions and shows, and Sunday on my way to Playas: biking, eating fresh seafood, and I must include a bit of work by visiting one of our on going projects to gather pictures for my clients overseas.

Another great candidate for retiring, the Dominican Republic

There’s no shortage of wonderful locations in which you can retire in various parts of the world. It may be a good idea to take a look at the Dominican Republic and see what this region has to offer.

This is a region that is a feast for the eyes, with beautiful beaches, clear water, a wonderfully breezy environment and a lot more. But the reason why it is so popular is because it’s a place where you can live very comfortably for as little as $2,000 or even less.

Although people in the Dominican Republic seem to earn less money, amazingly they are able to live much better, and the pace of their lives is calm and unhurried than people in the United States. Why is that? Because the cost of living in the United States is astronomical compared to the cost of living in the Dominican Republic. Add to this the fact that on top of all the privileges you have living in this country, you can actually get 18% interest on your bank account – tax free! Who could ask for more?

There’s no doubt about it, Dominicans are in the enviable position of being able to live life to the hilt. Remember, your dollar investments here are earning high rates of interest, all of which is tax-free. This is a country that has one of the fastest growing economies in the world. And then, take a look at health care facilities here. You won’t be disappointed – they are as modern as you need them to be.

You may argue that there are other places in the Caribbean that are just as appealing. True enough, but the scope of the Dominican Republic for both the investor and the retired person remain unmatched.

Just wait! In few more days we will show you the best property options at this wonderfull destination, take a look in this video, and you will follow in love right away..
