Moving to Ecuador: the complete guide to your winning real estate investment!



Beaches, sea and more! In recent years, Ecuador has been very successful both in economic and social terms, but especially in the real estate market. 

Buying an apartment in Ecuador, in fact, has been the winning choice for many who, eager to change their lives, have decided to start from this country. 


Admit it: you're thinking about it too, but you don't know where to start.

No drama! We are going to give you all the information you need to be able to inaugurate the most important and profitable investment of your life!


Let's start with a small list of (positive) points to understand at first glance, because it is better to live in Ecuador:


climate: the country on the equator (hence the name of Ecuador), has a mild climate, with warm winters and dry summers but pleasant;

tranquility: unlike what unfortunately happens in other South American countries, Ecuador has a very high level of security and a presence of crime very but very low. The perfect destination for those who want to find a place to build their homes in all serenity;

Effective and efficient services: Ecuador guarantees, especially for pensioners, excellent levels of service, especially in the medical field and in general in the health sector;

extremely simple national language: in Ecuador in fact we speak Spanish, very simple to learn but, if you are not suited for foreign languages, there is always our dear English that allows you to communicate easily without problems;

welcoming population: it is true that in hot countries, the population is just as warm! If you need any information, there will always be someone ready to help you with a smile!

After this general look, let's get to the heart of our guide: cost of living and Ecuadorian real estate market!

Let's start from a simple premise: for Americans it is the best place to live.

There are many pensioners in particular who decide to spend and enjoy their long-awaited retirement in peace and quiet in this place.

In particular, it is right to remember that this state occupies the first place in terms of level of liveability and convenience surpassing Panama, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain and Thailand.

But how long do you live with?

With about 700 euros per month a family can easily pay the bills, have a large enough house and take away a few more treats!

For those who want to live in a very comfortable way, with 1200 euros you can do it!


Let's take some small examples to understand the real cost of living:


a dinner out for two costs less than 5 euros
therapeutic massages about 15 euros an hour;
a good beer in a pub 1 euro;
the cost of fruits, vegetables, meat and basic necessities is about 40% lower than the prices of the major Western nations 


And now we solve the dilemma: is it better to buy a property or pay the rent?

If you love the sea and want to live near a beautiful beach, with less than 1000 square meters, you will find wonderful apartments, suitable for your needs.


As for the rental of a property, with 200 euros per month you can easily return in the expenses.


What can I say, we hope to have made it clearer and ... we wish you a good trip!
