In six days, Ireland’s fourth and largest fire sale auction takes place in the luxurious Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin. In all, 112 lots will go under the hammer. I’ll be there. As I predicted in earlier dispatches—prices are moving (slightly) down and yields up with each auction. More inventory is chasing a diminishing pool of buyers.
Last year I told you about an opportunity near Tulum, on the Southern edge of Mexico's Riviera Maya. The project is called Los Arboles Tulum. Real Estate Trend Alert members snapped up all 62 lots available last year, with member-only pricing and terms. This year, developer Greg Schnurr moved to the next phase of the project—home and lot packages, and community building. Twelve homes are under construction or at permitting stage. Many more are at the planning stage. Greg has just opened up a new and final phase (called Tejon) of 20 lots. Eleven of these lots are only available “off market” to members of our little group. We get special pricing and interest-free finance.
On January 28th developer Benjamin Beja will launch the next phase of the Tao project. Last Friday I gave you a heads-up about this. Real Estate Trend Alert members can get in pre-release at special member-only pricing and terms.
Greetings from Quito, Ecuador. In a few moments, I leave for the north coast. This is Ecuador’s nicest stretch of coast. We have the opportunity to buy lots here with monthly payments of $500 or less. Because of the new highway we’ll reach the coast by 9.30 a.m. or so. In time for morning ceviche on the beach. I’m looking forward to seeing the improvements in the coastal highway that runs south to Canoa since I last visited. I’ll send you my full report soon on the infrastructure developments and improvements at the Jama Campay project. In fact, while the year is winding down...my travel schedule and deal pipeline is filling up. These are exciting times.
The Tulum area at the southern edge of Mexico's Riviera Maya has been on my radar since I first gazed from a rustic palapa along the white-sand beach to the turquoise waters beyond. With warm powder sand between my toes, and warm sea breezes rustling through the palm trees, my jaw hit the floor. It's that stunning. That was seven years ago. It was a special place then. It's a special place now. With government plans to improve infrastructure (roads, bridges and an international airport) and boost tourist number (from 3 million to 11 million a year) this area is set to take off. It's not too late to get in. Here's how...
Last week I told you about a strong opportunity we have at the Jama Campay project on Ecuador’s dramatic north Pacific Coast. This is an "off market" deal—30 handpicked lots are only available to members of Real Estate Trend Alert. With the special member-only finance terms, we can buy one of these lots with a down payment of $15,000 and monthly payments of $416. On Nov. 1st, 2014 you could make your last payment of $416.
Along Costa Rica’s Southern Zone the bright, thick, green jungle canopy rolls down to a coast of sandy beaches and rocky points. It’s truly stunning. While prices in the north soared...prices here stayed low. It was difficult to get to. A new smoothly paved coastal highway has changed that. One project along this coast, rich in nature on land and sea, stands out as the gold standard. It’s here...on a stunning ocean view lot surrounded by jungle-clad hills in Pacific Lots... that a small group of Real Estate Trend Alert members will gather this December 8th-11th. They will have two price lists. One for all the inventory at the project. The other, a list of special pricing for our little group on more than 22 handpicked lots.
Ecuador’s nicest stretch of coast is now accessible. Buying here can position you ahead of the Path of Progress. It’s here, in the nicest part of this 100-kilometer stretch of Pacific Coast, in a “best in class” project, that we can buy a lot from $30,000. This is an “off market” deal—30 lots at Jama Campay are only available to members of Real Estate Trend Alert.
The economies of the PIIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain) are in disarray. Europe is in the throws of a banking crisis brought on by (among other things) exposure to Greek sovereign debt. Many of you have been asking if now is the time to jump in.
Unless you're a new member, you will already be familiar with the Los Arboles Tulum project on the southern edge of Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Last year RETA members bought large, five-acre lots in this jungle community for $65,000 with special member-only, interest-free financing. They have done well—a lot recently sold for $100,000. The next opportunity here is available to you now...with a discount, special terms, and financing. I'll share the full details with you in a moment. First, a quick bit of background on how the last deal at Los Arboles stacked up for RETA members.
