Ecuador real estate may help you fight US inflation. In this connected global marketplace falling US real estate prices and a crashing US dollar will create a new wave of buyer, the overseas investor. US property especially on the east and west coast will suddenly seem cheap in foreign currencies. This is a built-in buffer. Second, real estate sales in Florida are causing real estate prices in North Carolina to boom! Some of the money seems to be coming north. Third, real estate remains the ultimate inflation hedge.

Investors are fearful that rising US inflation will push up US, Japanese and European interest rates up. If this is true, well chosen real estate, purchased with fixed mortgages will be one of the best investments around.

Here is what a departing delegate just wrote about the May course: “Gary, You and Merri did a wonderful job with that seminar. I got some really useful information out of that which will help my investing perspective for the long term… The people were great too… I was really sad to leave the place and the people behind and come back to my regular life.”

There is great potential in Ecuador real estate as well. Merri and I love Ecuador because it is so close to the US (3 hours 45 minutes flight from Miami) and prices are still a fraction of the US. For example you can have a house like this in the $60,000 range! In the globally connected market, sky high USD prices drive more and more investors down here to enjoy the bargains.

Join Merri and me in Ecuador for our next course. Eat quinoa. Look at Ecuador real estate and learn how to learn better. Speak Spanish. DETAILS
