cotacachi-real-estate

These fixer uppers have huge lots, in the center of the village. They may be real sleepers.  We’ll see as we’ll inspect them on our Imbaburra real estate tour that begins tomorrow.

You can gain Cotacachi real estate information and Ecuador real estate contacts as an Ecuador Living subscriber. See details here.

Speaking of sleepers, this excerpt from today’s password protected multi currency course shows why European shares may be sleepers as well.

Here is the excerpt:

This multi currency update has three portions. First we see anther inflation indicator. Second we update our search for value. Third we end with some answers to questions from lesson one of our new updated primer course.

Recent inflationary events include the support by US authorities of Bank of America with a guarantee of liquidity and capital. B of A faces losses of up to $118 billion dollars.

The government gets shares in the bank worth $20 billion.  In other words the government stumps up about $88 billion (that it does not have).  This is inflation.

Citibank in trouble as well.

Jyske Global Asset Management wrote in its last market update three days ago:

Fears of further credit losses and rumours of another large US bank being nationalized dragged the international stock market down this week. The New Year rally last week is already forgotten, and investors are anticipating new lows in 2009.

Citigroup Inc. posted an $8.29 billion loss, only a few days after the announcement of their plans to sell the control of Smith Barney to rival Morgan Stanley.

Sales at U.S. retailers dropped in December for the sixth consecutive month (first time since 1992) and the most in three years.

S&P cut Greece’s long-term credit rating to A- with a stable outlook, due to its public and private debt and the budget deficit. The downgrade makes Greece the lowest rated country in the Euro zone.

Market participators are now speculating whether a Euro exit may become an option for some members of the Euro-bloc, analysts view Greece as the weakest economy within the Euro zone.

The European Central Bank (ECB) Thursday cut the Euro zone interest rate to the lowest level in more than 3 years.

As expected the main policy rate was cut by a half percentage point to 2%. The Danish Central bank followed the ECB with an even bigger cut of 75 basis pts to 3%.

#1: Falling interest rates are indicators for increased activity in share markets.

#2: Combine this with the fact that stock funds saw huge redemptions in 2008.

#3: Add in the next fact that international equity funds were among the most redeemed losing about a fourth of their total assets in 2008.

U.S. stock funds only had redemptions of about 10% of their assets.  Bond funds on the other hand experienced positive flows in 2008.

This increases my enthusiasm for international shares…especially in Europe.

Low interest rates plus markets that are oversold plus inflation all bode well for shares.

There are four ways to fight inflation; real estate, your own business, commodities and equities.   So depressed international equities in an atmosphere of low interest rates spells opportunity.

These three factors are the elements that create value because value investors are generally bucking the trend.

This is why last year my biggest equity position was in the Jyske Invest European Equity fund.  I picked a fund that was invested mostly in markets that Michael Keppler of Keppler Asset Mangement viewed as having the best value.

Keppler has changed some of his rankings this month so let’s review the change and see if my position still makes sense.

Let’s look at the geographical breakdown of the Jyske Invest European Equities fund I hold now.

This fund has departed quite a lot from the synchronicity it enjoyed with Keppler’s top values when I invested two years ago.  The fund’s portfolio is spread here now:

UK  24%
Germany 16%
Switzerland 13%
France 12%
Spain 7%
Netherlands 4.5%
Sweden 4%
Spain 4%
Finland 3%
Italy      2%
Greece 2%
Denmark 1.5%
Norway 1.5%
Luxembourg .5%
Ireland  0.5%
Austria 0.5%

The fund’s managers report says:

There are prospects of uncertainty in 2009. The world economy is struggling
and the optimism has turned into pessimism. Central banks and  governments have been busy introducing rescue packages and  interest-rate cuts. The help has been offered, but is it sufficient and when will it begin to show an effect? We
expect that 2009 will bring wide swings in the equity market. A lasting upturn is not likely to be just around  the corner. We are still looking at a longer period characterised by uncertainty before the optimists outnumber the pessimists.

For the fund we prefer cheap shares with prospects of earnings growth. That type of shares has historically yielded the best returns.

Though this fund no longer has the same value synchronicity with Keppler that it previously had, I’ll continue to hold this as I plan to increase my equity position. I can balance this fund’s holdings to better match Keppler’s rankings by adding Hong Kong, Singapore, Italian and other funds or ETFs.

You can learn more about Keppler’s market updates and the ETFs we use in our multi currency portfolio as a multi currency susbcriber.

Until next update, good global investing

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

Beach project startup, Hacienda Palo Alto, north of Bahia starting in Cabuyal.

We have been reporting for years that the area in Ecuador with the most explosive potential is north of Bahia.

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

Bahia.  See below how to get our updated report on Bahia FREE.

Bahia is a wonderful city, small, but large enough for services. There is easy access from Quito and elsewhere. There are big investments pouring into the area.

The spark we suggested would ignite the growth was the completion of this new…
Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

bridge.  The bridge over the Chone Estuary.

Next will come…

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

regular flights from Quito to San Vicente Airport.

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

Dirt roads from Quito and up and down the coast have been paved into four and six lane highways.

Now there is rapid change and development in Bahia, Ecuador’s first Ecocity.   This is the favorite town in the area with a population of 25,000 people located on the mouth of the river – the Rio Chone.

There are clean beaches, a Museum of archeology and art, organic eco-shrimp farms and tourism.

Over the bridge is where we’ll probably see the fastest growth. The towns north of Bahia but still in the lovely province of Manabi are:

San Vicente
Canoa
Cabuyal
Jama
Pedernales

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

Hacienda Palo Alto is a brand new project… just beginning in Cabuyal, Ecuador.   The turnoff to the project is about 12 miles (20 kilometers) north of Canoa.

Currently Cabuyal is a very small town. Expect significant changes over the next few years, mostly due to the upcoming Hacienda Palo Alto.

Highway improvements will reduce the drive from Quito to 4 hours (from 7+ hours last year!).

This is planned to be a gated Community with 24/7 security, underground utilities, fire hydrants, internal paved streets; outdoor showers at the beaches, paved beach access, manager and sales office; clubhouse with pool, bar and gym, helipad, walking trail, children’s playground and beach ranchitos for relaxing.

The plan calls for the majority of the property will be left in its natural state.

Cabuyal-beach-ecuador

The land has creeks and huge ceibo trees, wild orchids, parrots, and howler monkeys.

The beach is mostly sandy and has a gentle slope.  There is a nesting area for sea turtles. Waves provide excellent surfing and body surfing. Humpback whales visit July through September.

This is an approved subdivision with 453+ acres and 1 km (.6 mile) of Pacific beach.

There are 166 ~2000 sq. meter (20,000 sq ft.) lots near the beach that are not low-lying, plus fractionals, and homes and some commercial retail. Most of the property is to be left in its natural state.

Fwd: salinas-ecuador-villa

Salinas Coastal Villa

This villa is less than 5 years old and just 2 blocks from the beach in a quiet, residential area of Salinas.

Fwd: salinas-ecuador-villa

The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, living/dining area, kitchen with ample cabinet space, front porch and back patio with pool and BBQ area.

Fwd: salinas-ecuador-villa

Even better, there is a nice efficiency suite in the back patio area, which the current owners frequently rent at the rate of $150 to $200 per month.

Fwd: salinas-ecuador-villa

The property is listed at $82,000.

A Salinas Ecuador real estate broker sent me a note about this low cost condo with a $70,000 asking price.

salinas-condo

Many clients are looking for a property with a good amount of interior space, in a nice neighborhood, where they can enjoy the beach life, at a price of under $100,000.

You can look just a few blocks off the beach.  Like anywhere else, the ocean front properties in Salinas carry a bigger price than those just off the beach.  These off beach properties are often in better shape than those right at the water’s edge as they take less wear and tear from the salt air. Another benefit, the owner of an off-beach property doesn’t have the expense of maintaining a seawall, as many oceanfront property owners do.

A  property that fits the bill is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo with service quarters, in a small complex with a nicely landscaped pool area.  Sit at the pool and enjoy your own tropical paradise.

salinas-condo

Walk just a few blocks to the beach.  The condo includes a private parking spot and furnishings.

The asking price is $70,000.

Special Bargain in Mindo

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

mindo-ecuador-real-estate

The owners are Austrlian 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

Near New Quito Airport

This will be an extremely desirable area in the Andes, about half way between Quito and Cotacachi. One gated community has the most stunning gardens… incredible security and expansive views.

Quito and Surrounds

On our most recent trip to Ecuador, Merri and I visited the first class Pakakuna Gardens gated community near  Quito’s new Airport.

This stunningly beautiful development will be of interest to those who want to be near but not in Quito or near the airport and or who want to live in one of the nicest gardens in the world.

As I sat in the greenery, I thought about how…

Quito airport porerty

Ecuador has evolved over the past 15 years since Merri and I first began visiting… from a place that was just incredibly cheap, to a place where dreams can still be fulfilled.

Prices in most parts of Ecuador are higher now but the infrastructure has improved greatly and the exquisite combination of Ecuadorian style with their great engineering capabilities have produced stunning communities across the country.  Pakakuna Gardens is one of the best for gardens.
