Low Cost Ecuador Expat Living – Pivotal Week – Day 5


Low cost living for expats in Ecuador has boomed over the past several years.

otavalo-cotacachi house

House for sale between Otavalo and Cotacachi.

This trend will grow.   US and Western European economies are both being forced to face up to debt, aging populations and huge unfunded future obligations in pensions, medical care and who knows what, amid a disintegrating, global social cohesion evidenced by terrorism… revolution and internal strife.  

Huge losses will occur as the dollar and euro lose purchasing power.

One way to protect against these losses is by seeking a lower cost lifestyle in countries such as Ecuador.

Here is a paid advertisement for a designer house for sale between Otavalo and Cotacachi Ecuador.

When you come on to the .3 acre (1206 sq mtr or 12,000 sq ft ) site, your breath is first taken away by the grand presentation of Imbabura Mountain that rises in front of you.

Cotacachi Ecuador House for Sale


Here is a Cotacachi house for sale.

ecuador

Merri and I have been buying and selling real estate throughout Ecuador for more than a decade… and though recent trips have not been to Cotacachi… (we have Ecuador real estate in the cloud forests and on the coast that need attention also),  Cotacachi still holds a special place in our heart.  We have a hotel, and several houses and apartments there.  Cotacachi is where we call home in Ecuador.

House and condo builder, Jorge Quilambaci, also has a special closeness with us.  He built our first house in Cotacachi, of adobe, which we still maintain, so we especially stayed in touch with him as he built two more Cotacachi adobe houses like ours next door and just below our house.  We talked Jorge into adobe as this is the original Andean building material (and we believe) most comfortable and… natural as it breaths.

Checking out the construction of the new house last year with Jorge…

Cotacachi-House-for-sale

We especially like this construction since the view from our house overlooks these new houses.  Jorge is a master at making the gardens beautiful.

Cotacachi-House-for-sale

Here is Jorge in front of some of his gardening at Jardines de Pichavi where this Cotacachi house is located. This improved our views with the gardening.

Jorge added some specials in this garden including a cupola and…

Thus I was not surprised when this adobe house sold quickly.

Now one of these Cotacachi adobe houses is available for resale.  Owner Jim Lovell explains why in the paid advertisement below:

Cotacachi House for Sale

Gary, we would like to sell one of the two casitas in Jardines de Pichavi. We bought the house back in September and moved in the first week of March. We had all intentions on making this our Ecuadorian retirement home but as things have turned out we need more room. The house is absolutely perfect for two people but it might prove to be a bit cramped for more than that.

ecuador

We have $90,000 invested in the house, actually a bit more than that, and this is the price we are offering.  All we want to do is get our money out of the house so we can build a larger place.

Here are some of the features:

ecuador

* Two bedrooms

* Two baths

* Fireplace in living room (kiva style shown above)

* Approximately 1600 square feet under roof

* Balcony with custom wrought iron deck railing

ecuador

* Unique 247 square foot bodega with 110v/220v power

* Oversize kitchen cabinets

* Custom vanities in both baths

* Glass block shower enclosure

* Granite counter tops

* Upgrade tile in both bathrooms

* Special order, oversized whirlpool tub in master bath

* All plumbing & electrical fixtures imported from USA

* Deep, recessed double ss sink

* Concealed perimeter lighting in all rooms

* Large built in dresser in master (12 drawers – 7.5 feet long)

* Two zone, monitored security system

* Direct TV

* Saltillo tile throughout (including bodega)

* Custom fireplace enclosure

* Special wiring

ecuador

This is really a great house. Jorge did a bang up job on it and we are very pleased with the results.
