Cuenca is perhaps Ecuador’s most beautiful city… one of the favorite choices of expats. The four photos below from skyscraperlife.com shows why.
One’s impression of Cuenca when viewed from afar is orderly and clean and beautiful colonial rooftops!
Up close… one feels stately and…
Though there are many beautiful old colonial buildings in Cuenca, they are rarely on the market.
This Cuenca real estate listing has almost 10,000 square feet… 10 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. It also has 2 commercial stores which produce rental income.
This colonial building could easily be converted to small condos.
There is 9,800 sq feet of construction and some land behind the building. The building was built of adobe hundreds of years ago.
The asking price is $140,000.
Cuenca Real Estate Tour
Cuenca real estate offers excellent quality and value for expats in Ecuador. Here is a shot of downtown Cuenca.
Ecuadorliving.com was the first website to recommend Ecuador real estate nearly two decades ago and we continue to assist Ecuador Living Club members in arranging Ecuador tours as the most efficient way to learn about Ecuador’s real estate market.
Ecuador real estate markets have evolved to the point that group tours are counter productive. When Ecuador Living began, there was not enough property… easily reached… for sale. Little English was spoken and the properties were often hard to reach and spread far apart.
Ecuador real estate group tours helped readers reach these properties.
Today there are many properties and group tours can inhibit zeroing in on specific wants and needs.
Ecuador Living’s Real Estate Tour service helps its members create custom tours that fit each person’s schedule and particular desires.
The personalized tours are like AAA Trip Tics and help in three ways.
#1: The dates of your tour can be set to fit your schedule. Ecuador Living makes sure you don’t book a tour on holidays or times when you would not be able to see property.
#2: The tour service helps you zero in on your particular needs in real estate so you do not want to spend time viewing properties that are not of interest to you. Once we have your tour dates and specifications, we contact brokers, developers and sellers of real estate in advance to help focus your search.
#3: You can turn these tours into adventures and overall Ecuador introductory tours so you see many different areas of Ecuador as you wish.
Ecuador Personalized Real Estate Tours are the most efficient and inexpensive way to get an overall view of Ecuador real estate.
Because we are publishers who owe our loyalty to our readers and not real estate agents, you can be assured that the tours are based on your wishes, not on any broker’s desire to sell a specific property. Ecuador Living does not participate in any proceeds, commissions etc. from real estate sales.
For example if you only want to view farms with acreage and want to see farms in three areas… such as Cuenca, Imbabura and the coast we can help you organize a tour for this.
A recent article entitled “Building a charming destination” by Paola Vellejo in the Bienes Raices Clave (Key Real Estate), Ecuador’s leading real estate magazine shows how experienced we are in Ecuador real estate.

A translation of the article says: In conversation with Britain’s Steve Marchant, familiar with the housing boom of Cotacachi, you can see the origin of the phenomenon of its growing popularity as a destination for retirees is the result of the sum of a series of coincidences that inevitably arise from one person: Gary Scott. Scott was the spark that ignited the housing boom of Cotacachi for retirees.
