How to profit on real estate in Ecuador and what to look out for – a case study with Delfin Villas.
IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE READING:
Recently we had a promotion offering up to $20,000 discounts off the list price for Gary Scott members specifically on the project Delfin Villas. You may know us from our House Hunters Episode in Puerto Cayo. We do this for a living and thought these were some important things anyone considering Ecuador should know.
Should you finish the article and want to speak with me directly, go for it. I am happy just to shoot the breeze about Ecuador in general.my email: Sean@puertocayo.com
We decided that after all of the experience we have had with working in Real Estate in Ecuador and different projects and investments, it wouldn’t hurt to put it all into a single document that hopefully, just might help others.
We thought it was worth demonstrating some realities to consider about Real Estate in Ecuador and what to look for. In just over a month we have had some amazing new neighbors join us recently as the lucky owners in Delfin Villas and I’d like to give a big public “welcome” to them. We’ll end this with a link to Delfin Villas and a special offer for those of you following Gary Scott. In the meantime, we hope you’ll find this article especially worthwhile.
So, let’s get started…

We DO NOT investigate properties when they are advertised so be sure to complete your due diligence. Always use an independent Ecuador attorney who represents you (not the seller) when you buy real estate in Ecuador. We also recommend that you rent, become familiar with Ecuador before you buy.

Learn about Ecuador from Ecuadorians with the February 2015 “Get Together Ecuador Seminar”
Manta – Ecuador
Get the inside scoop from Ecuadorians about Ecuador so you can make informed decisions about whether this country is one that will improve your lifestyle.
Ecuador has many advantages, close to North America, just four hours from Miami. Plus the brand new Quito Airport means you’ll arrive to the latest in accommodations.
You can choose the perfect climate for you. The Andes offer eternal spring, never really hot, never freezing. The coast can be warmer, but nowhere in Ecuador are temperatures extreme.
You can choose to live in large cities, towns, or small villas. The majority of Ecuador Living readers choose Cuenca. The cool weather, beautiful colonial architecture, and complete infrastructure has attracted over 6,500 expats from around the world.

Other sessions give you insights into the cultural differences that only Ecuadorians can explain. Learn why when “we” tell you we will meet at 17:00 we arrive at 17:15. Learn how and why “we will be there in 5 minutes” actually means 15 minutes. Find out the difference between formal business meetings and informal gatherings with friends and family. This is important. If you are invited to a party at 20:00, don’t show up on time or you and your host will be embarrassed. Arrive at least an hour late.
