Ecuador Real Estate Prices

Ecuador real estate prices are on the rise.


Here is an Ecuador real estate price value that delegates saw on Jean Marie Butterlin’s recent Ecuador real estate tour.

A reader sent this note yesterday regarding the advertisement that ran on Saturday for Vilcabamba real estate.

Gary, These prices seem very very high for a 3rd world deal. I can buy FL properties for less. What am I missing?

What the reader was missing is the understanding that all markets move in cycles and investors need to know where they are in a cycle.

I live in North Carolina, Florida and Ecuador and have been writing about the Florida opportunities for over two years.

You can see this in a 2009 article entitled Florida Ecuador about this.

First, you cannot buy real estate like the real estate shown in the ad (in the US) for the same price. You have to compare apples with apples.

Second, there is a huge quality of life and cost of living difference… plus Ecuador prices are rising while Florida prices are falling.

You can see at “Survive International Investing Shifts” why I am buying Florida real estate now as it falls.

One has to determine why one is buying… an investment or a place to live.  Where one wishes to live… and what place on the investing curve one wishes to be.

We have to remember that Third World is not what it used to mean.

Third World is where the action now is.

Now Third World means good fresh food at affordable prices… a maid… a gardener and an incredible home with cell phone English TV, broad band and much less government interference.

You’ll find Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico still more expensive than Ecuador and we are hearing from many US developers who have now been buying hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Ecuador real estate. We expect to see more and more higher quality projects but we also expect Ecuador real estate prices to rise even more… quite dramatically in the next year or two.

I expect my Ecuadorian real estate to rise in the next couple of years and my Florida real estate could well go down.

However there are places where Ecuador prices are still very low.

The Ecuador coast is one place where prices are far below US prices.
