Latin American Investments

by | Jan 28, 2008 | Archives

Latin American investments grow in attractiveness as liquidity grows in importance with the US real estate market in the doldrums, the US economy in recession and global stock markets on the way down.

So this Ecuador Living reader asked a good question:

“Hi Gary , I really appreciate the no-fluff, candid information and advice you provide your readers; and your wisdom about global markets. Here’s a question that I suspect at least some of your other readers would probably be interested in as well…

“How do you think the current liquidity situation in the housing market will affect house prices in Ecuador and other Latin American countries?

“Will the decreased liquidity cause less money to be available for people to buy houses in those countries? Or will the lower prices in those countries continue to

attract more purchasers from the States (and thus increase prices)? Or will these 2 factors at least somewhat offset each other? Thanks for your insight! Tom”
