#MI102:  Mindo Distressed Sale

We reviewed a house for sale near Mindo last month.  The house has an incredible view, surrounded by nature. As you know Mindo is considered the paradise of the world for birdwatching. Near the house is the Mindo Nambillo Protected Forest. The house is stunning in its design and setting. Another important thing is that the house is new.

Mindo House


The owners are Australian and had to return there due to health problems.

They have now written: Gary, We are writing this letter to ask for your assistance in the selling of our house in Mindo. Although Shyam has had his heart problems fixed, it does not look likely that we could come and live permanently in Ecuador.

Financially, however it has been very difficult for us. Although the Australian Government is paying us welfare it is not quite enough to meet all our bills, as the cost of living here has risen substantially over the last 3 to 4 years.

As such we would like you to advise us on how we could effectively sell our house in Mindo.

It has been more than 6 months since we advertised our house for sale. Although we have had some enquiries, have had no ‘bites’ so far. We are now prepared to cut our losses and sell the house at below cost.

One of us is prepared to travel to Ecuador to do the necessary arrangements if required, as it would be too expensive for both of us to travel there.  Please help.  Thanks for your kindness, Shyam and Pramila
