Everybody dreams of living the good and sweet life, and Ecuador promises just that with its collection of luxurious estates. Whether you’re looking for a splendid villa with majestic views of the Pacific or a Mediterranean-style mountain retreat nestled in the Ecuadorian Andes, Ecuador’s luxury real estate options are exciting, diverse, and most of all, exceptional.
To prepare yourself for a life like no other, here are some things you should remember when you purchase luxury real estate in Ecuador.
1. Get in touch with an experienced and knowledgeable Realtor.
Only the most knowledgeable of real estate professionals have access to Ecuador’s prized collection of luxury homes. You can hire a Realtor or, better yet, get in touch with us here at LIVETHELIFE to learn more about your luxury real estate options.
2. Inspect the property thoroughly.
A luxury home is certainly an investment that you’d want to get your money’s worth on. It goes without saying that you should personally tour the property and ask any and all questions about the home’s features and amenities.
Better yet, hire a specialized home inspector to scrutinize the property you’re interested in. Make sure the inspector you get is an expert on features that often come with upscale homes like:
- Sophisticated security systems
- Lawn irrigation systems
- Pools, spas, fountains, and ponds
- Exterior fireplaces
- Landscape lighting
- Surveillance systems
- Central air-conditioning and vacuum systems
- Automatic screens and awning
3. Take care of financial matters.
Listing agents of luxury real estate are only interested in showing to qualified buyers, so it’s best to get your financing approved before you start shopping around. This will prevent delays when you’re ready to make an offer.
4. Get a local real estate attorney on your team.
A local real estate lawyer will help you with the legalities of purchasing real estate in Ecuador. Hire based on reputation, recommendation, track record.
