This seems really
cheap - how come the price is so low?
General Pricing Information
At 150 Hectares, you are buying this land
in bulk. Plus, this is "unimproved" land without
interior roads, power lines, or other improvements.
It will take additional funds to implement even
a basic infrastructure, but $1 per square meter,
Lindo Bosque is specifically priced so that
a buyer can easily make a solid return on their
investment no matter what direction they take.
What are the general
prices for land in this area?
hard to find land with basic infrastructure
for less than $5 per square meter in the general
Montanita area. Anything with even a hint of
an ocean view goes for at least $20 per square
meter, and prices go up as you get closer
to the beach. Beachfront property in this
area starts at $80 per square meter. At $1 per square meter, Lindo Bosque is very competitively priced.
Note that there are some other properties in the $1
to $2 per sq. meter range, but sometimes
they are not "titled" properties and a buyer
would have to go through the process of
claiming title, which involves a petition to
the Land Registration office and agreement
from the local community. Lindo Bosque is
fully titled, with Title Insurance in place
from First American Title.
Are you willing to
sub-divide this property and sell it in pieces?
Our preference would be to sell
the entire property as one parcel. However,
if 150 hectares is too much land for you, we
could break the property into parcels (see
Engineering Survey). The
minimum parcel size would be 20 Hectares
(200,000 sq. meters) for $200,000.
Is financing available?
If the situation warrants, the
be willing to finance up to 50% of the purchase
price with reasonable terms.
General area Information
There seems to be
a lot of properties for sale in this area, especially
on the beach. Is everyone moving out?
No – quite the contrary. Many people
in the local community have lived here for generations,
and many of these residents have never given
much thought to the value of their land.
Now that this area has been “discovered” and
prices are rising, the property owners
are realizing that they are sitting on valuable
real estate. Many of the original owners
are selling at what they consider to be outrageously
high prices, but the real winners will be the
people who are investing in this area now.
The trend over the next five to ten years will
be similar to what has happened in Costa Rica,
Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama over the
past ten to twenty years. We believe the prices of coastal
property in Ecuador will continue to rise until
they become competitive with other resort areas
What are the beaches
This 10km stretch of beach from Olon northward
is considered to have the best beaches
in Ecuador. The beaches are exceedingly
clean, free of rocks, with very soft sand.
The slope of the beach is incredibly low, you
can walk 50 Meters out into the water and only
be up to your waist. Montanita (8Km to
the south) is the hot spot for the surfing,
but many beginners prefer to surf the beaches
of San Jose and Olon, as the conditions are
generally more gentle.
Why is this particular
area so popular? There seems to be a lot of
wonderful beaches, the stretch of coast from
Montanita up to Puerta Lopez is the only
area on the coast of Ecuador where the
"green forest" extends all the way to the
ocean. While there are many nice beaches
are along the rest of the coast, the
surrounding terrain is mostly dry and
The combination of beautiful, lush, green tropical forest
AND such an incredible beach makes this one
of the most popular areas on the coast
What is the growth
potential for this area?
the town of San Jose is only a small fishing
village of 500 or so people, and most of the
land in the area is undeveloped, the overall
growth has been impressive and we believe
the trend will continue. Over the past ten
years, there have been a substantial number
of high end houses built on the beach and in
the hills that have ocean views. Beachfront
property has doubled
in price over the last few years, and we
expect the price appreciation to continue. There
are a large number of very successful small
resorts and spas in the area, but we feel the
tourist traffic warrants a larger ecotourism
resort which could be built at Lindo Bosque.
