Paraguay Real Estate: Why Warren Buffett has always bet big on real estate

Paraguay real estate lands investingParaguay Real Estate Investing: Why Warren Buffett has always bet big on real estate

When it comes to investing, Warren Buffett doesn’t listen to all the chatter in the market. Perhaps the world’s greatest value investor, he invests into demand.

In his recent annual letter to shareholders, Buffett describes in an essay why his real estate investments have been so good to him over time – no matter what market conditions were or “experts” were saying. The same thing is happening to real estate in Paraguay.

He outlines two particular real estate investments that have paid off big time and reveals the reasons why they have, even though over the years markets have shifted and people’s opinions of real estate have changed. With Paraguay’s economy heating up real estate investing in Paraguay is moving full swing ahead.

The key, he says, is demand. No matter what, “Corn will always be growing in Nebraska,” he said. And people will always need somewhere to live.

In fact, the essay reveals five major philosophies Buffett sticks to in all his investments, including the one big thing to focus on and how to avoid speculating. Guess what, we hate speculating too!

For a limited time, investors can request a free skype consultation which includes an investor hotlist of investment properties that fit the Buffett model.

Real Estate Lands in Paraguay

Paraguay real estate landsWell it certainly has been a while since we last chatted, I know I’ve been busy. It’s tough setting up a real estate business while traveling and working on other projects, thank goodness I have a wonderful on the ground team to help with everything. So far this year we’ve closed on over 20 real estate transactions. A great example of taking first world style techniques and adapting them to another market. I’ve been in the real estate game for over 10 years now and seen just about everything, until I went to Paraguay that is.

Why is Paraguay so different you ask?

Well first and foremost if the freedom it affords, in all our transactions we were able to sit down at a table with the seller directly and work out the entire deal verbally in the presence of an attorney. We sat down face to face, eye to eye with the seller and hammered out the purchase price, down payment, penalty for nonperformance, where and when closing will take place, who pays what fees and transfer taxes. All very clear and smooth, then off to the attorney to draw it up, exchange monies collect the receipts and off we go. Simple smooth and straightforward, that’s how business in Paraguay is done.

Does this sound like something you’d be interested in? Well if you’re looking to invest in Paraguay call us we’d love to chat

A little bit about our Real Estate Offerings (Ingles y Espanol)

Paraguay new 047For those looking to buy real estate in Paraguay the process is quite a bit different than what you might be used to in other countries. Personally I have bought, sold, flipped and invested in over 100 properties in 3 Countries and dozens of states in the USA and I can honestly say that buying property in Paraguay threw me for a small loop. The relationships, processes and protocols are just slightly different here, and those small differences can make or break your deal. This is why working with a reliable, trustworthy real estate agent is so crucial to your short term and long term success.

Minors Departing Paraguay

Minors Departing Paraguay

Parents should reside within the Justice of the Peace’s jurisdiction

Note: There are four Justice of the Peace offices in Asunción. You should go to the one that’s closest to your home.

Parents residing abroad. Steps to be taken to obtain a Permiso del Menor for their child

 

Parents should sign an authorization before the Paraguayan Consul, (in Consulate letterhead). This document must be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.  The person appointed to travel with the child must appear before the court with a lawyer to start the process to obtain a “Venia Judicial para viajar” which is the authorization granted by the judge that allows the child to travel with a third party.

 

The Court for minors and adolescents (Family Court) will receive these documents in order to issue or deny the authorization for the child to leave the country. Among other documents to be presented are:  Notarized letter signed by parents before the Paraguayan consul, Child’s Paraguayan ID (cédula), Child’s original birth certificate* or Paraguayan passport of the adult appointed by the parents to travel with the child.

 

The process can take approximately 15 days. If the child is 6 years or older, the judge will request to see him/her as well. The Judge will take the child’s wishes into consideration.

*If the child was born in the U.S., the original birth certificate must be authenticated by the Paraguayan Consul before it’s presented to Paraguayan authorities.

Quick real estate tip for buying real estate in Paraguay

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

When relocating to Paraguay, rent first! Get a feel for the different neighborhoods and how to get around, to work and entertainment.
Always seek competent professional advice especially when dealing with Paraguayan real estate, there is no centralized database of properties and anyone can find a real estate deal so competent representation is crucial. I’d always recommend an attorney draw up your sales contract from scratch. Depending on your situation this can vary generally from USD$250 to 600 but is well worth the anxiety and agravation you will avoid later on in the transaction.
Also keep in mind that for the buyer, commissions are above and beyond the sales price as negotiated with the seller so keep 7-10% on the side for transactional fees, commission and “misc” things that need to be taken care of, the seller pays the taxes and that’s typically it, unless otherwise negotiated.

Its stealing, nothing less. So are you thinking about getting a second passport in Paraguay? look further here…

Paraguay Citizenship

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Looking to attain Citizenship in Paraguay?

cedulabarackSo are alot of people! People seeking multiple flags are increasingly looking to Citizenship in Paraguay as a great alternative. We have a saying here, “en Paraguay, todo es posible” which roughly means that “In Paraguay, anything is possible”. this has many different meanings, but the most important is the general sense of optimism that the people of this beloved land possess. Yes it’s almost like America 50 years ago, where the sense of optimism, the youth, the hard working people and years of isolation have brought together a perfect storm of optimism to the future.

Citizenship in Paraguay takes a quick 4 years. You will start off by gaining your permanent residency in Paraguay which takes a few days with a great Paraguayan lawyer or fixer (we know them all) to put in the applications and get everything squared away. After your Paraguayan residency is complete you will need to start your “significant ties to the country” as evidenced in many ways. We have seen dozens of applications get kicked back for a variety of reasons and there are some pitfalls that you should definitely watch out for, especially by the part-time lawyers who are not actually present for your applications.

There are a number of nuisances to your application for Paraguay Citizenship that only time in the country here and boots on the ground efforts can provide. There is a ton of misinformation on Paraguayan Citizenship out there and free advice can be the most expensive advice you ever receive, trust me on that one from someone who has lived and traveled to over 40 countries and been through similar situations before, finding trustworthy reliable people in foreign countries is difficult, Paraguay is no exception.

Let’s be honest here, we use this website as a platform to share our love and adventures within Paraguay, but we also use it screen out lookie-loos and expat wanna be’s to help those of you who are truly interested in diversifying your life here in Paraguay. From Residency in Paraguay, Citizenship in Paraguay, real estate in Paraguay, investing in Paraguay, bank accounts in Paraguay and lifestyle choices in Paraguay, we are here to help. The bottom line is that your success is our success and the network we are creating today will change the face of Paraguay  in the years to come and eventually South America.

Yes we ask that you join our little membership that’s less than a USD$100 per year, to get first in line access to all sorts of professionals here throughout Paraguay that we have looked eye to eye, shook hands with and actually worked with on a variety of projects. They have all completed services for us and our friends with a smile and honesty. We don’t sugar coat things and just prefer to tell you like it is for your situation and let you make an informed and educated decision. We are in the information age and there is a TON of information out there, we help provide answers to your unique situation. We don’t bombard you with pitchy sales crap, I hate that and am sure you do too. Just cool, informative stuff that help you and guess what you’ll have direct access to our friends here anytime you need it.

So far we have only had one person ask for their money back and that was a “competitor” if you can call them that who just wanted to poach our well done research and use it on their “competing” rip off of a page, our response, “it’s flattered to be held in such high regard that someone has to poach our info for their site” ParaguayAtYourService is still the first and the premier destination for business people the world over to get their feet moving on the ground in Paraguay. We even offer you a Second Life Service that if you ever read Neill Strauss’ book Emergency you’ll have an idea of what we mean but you will actually have to take action and contact us to find out more details cuz we simply won’t put that on the internet.

Will you be our next friend here in Paraguay?

I sure hope so.

Mateo out…..
