I’ll share my entire investment portfolio in a moment.. First, let me explain why I am adding more Cotacachi real estate to my portfolio.
A recent message explained why I recommend our upcoming course conducted by our astrologer, Blaine Watson, on February 9-11, 2009 Beyond Logic Simple Ways to More Wealth and Better Health
I outlined how Merri and I had a wonderful reminder why we need to live beyond logic.
I showed our hotel…Meson de las flores.
and told how we had the opportunity to buy this fixer upper directly across the street from the hotel.
The fixer upper is coming out great by the way. Plus we received a huge bonus.
Everything about this building was great except there was one problem… traffic buses and trucks…fumes and noise ran right past it..
We racked our brain trying to figure out how to resolve this….but there seemed no solution. We almost decided not to buy… but Blaine and our chart indicated that this was the right thing to do. So we went ahead… leapt in faith and bought the building. We started fixing it up.
Yesterday we learned that the village is building a new bus and truck road, blocks away. Our road…that goes right past our new fixer upper building will be blocked to trucks and buses. When we bought…no one could have known!
We would have never thought of this solution. The answer was Beyond Logic.
Now another almost eerie real estate coincidence has happened.
Yesterday I sent my Ecuador Living subscribers a password protected message about some Cotacachi property that I believe is special.
You can read this password protected information as an Ecuador Living subscriber.
I have been writing to you about this area where this dirt road is being paved.
What I shared with the Ecuador Living subscribers was information about an area just past this road where I had a special, good feeling. I was thinking of buying some land myself in this area.
I wrote: When we see a road like this developing we start looking in all the nooks and crannies. This area looks rural but it’s not. This seemingly rural area is right in the path of progress. Our hotel is not far…next to the Cathedral you see in the distance here.
There are numerous lots for sale by owner… some really excellent deals that we’ll see on our upcoming property tours.
Here are a few…they do not look like much… but…
all this property is just a few blocks from this new road. So when we see a wall like this we do not see crumbling stone.
We see what is beyond.
A field and it’s for sale.
So when we see this…
and this … new construction in the midst of all these lots for sale.
We know the game is afoot…there is special opportunity.
Then in that password protected message I showed one of the numerous houses our readers have purchased from our friend, Diana Carasco.
Diana is a famous artist in Ecuador but she also builds really great houses…that sell from as low as $76,000…and they are amazing. Delegates on our real estate tours snap them up faster than she can build.
So today Diana took us around to show us some new land she is buying today.
Here it is, exactly the land I saw and shared with my readers yesterday. This is the type of coincidence I look for when spotting opportunity.
I want you to know … I came back and immediately made an offer on the land in this area that i have been considering. To know that Diana was going to build in this area was beyond logic. I took this as the final sign…act now!

There is more that you can see from this excerpt I sent to my password protected multi currency investors. Here is the excerpt:

This portfolio dropped 11.1% from December 2007 to December 2008. Compared to the markets this was not all that bad.
Last month it rose 4.31% so is now down 7.11% from its all time high in 2007.
Yet for me, the portfolio did not really move at all.
You can read this entire password protected update with a deeper review of my portfolio as a Multi Currency subscriber.
I then went on to share three rules behind this portfolio.
One of the rules is that I assume that the real estate portion of my portfolio will protect the entire portfolio’s purchasing power.
We have a wealth of property to see on our upcoming property tours… Cotacachi houses, condos, haciendas… gated communities, a cheese factory…and land.
We hope to see you here.
Join us in Ecuador this February.
