Prices for real estate in Quito and the surrounding valleys are still low. For example below you can see brand new 861 square foot three bedroom condos for $29,999.
Carlos Tobar, who is conducting our Quito and Mindo real estate tour, just sent me this note.
The picture above shows a shot of the more modern, northern part of Quito, with the impressive Pichincha in the background.
The city is a world heritage renowned for its historic downtown, the largest Spanish colonial town in South America. The historic colonial city center offers several real estate opportunities, nested in this most impressive colonial ambiance.
However, Quito is characterized as a city of diversity. The city is over 30 miles long while not much more than a few miles wide.
The north is more modern, home to most of the banking sector and large business, as well as the more expensive neighborhoods. The south is more
commercial, with less expensive neighborhoods. Quito also boasts its surrounding valleys such as the valleys of Tumbaco, Los Chillos, Calderon and Pomasqui. Here is a map.
Our Quito – Mindo tours will take us to see opportunities in old town Quito. We will look at
properties in the northern business sector of Quito, such as these condos located in the
heart of the business, banking and hotel sector of Quito:
Prices in a modern brand new building such as this are about $64,000 for a 572 square foot
The general floor plans of the condos are as follows:
As you can tell, Quito offers both modern and classic architecture. It also offers a wide variety
of prices, depending on what you may be looking for.
For instance, we will also visit this development:
It is located in the Valley of Pomasqui, very close to the zero latitude “middle of the world”.
This energetic center was known even as far back as the Incas, and they were so drawn to it
that they were not satisfied until they made it part of their empire.
Comfortable and quality town houses are available in this complex
starting for US$ 29,999 for a cozy 861 square foot 3 bedroom unit. Here we have a
few shots of the interior of these properties (the furniture is that of the model home but is not
included in the sales price):

The dining room leading to the kitchen area
The bed room comfort
As part of our continuing tasting of the variety Quito has to offer, delegates who will attend the
Quito-Mindo tour will visit the higher end project as well, located where the new airport is being built.
The project lies next to a renowned Golf and Country Club.
It boasts 3.5 acres of green communal areas, fresh air, a privileged micro-climate, in an
exclusive, high-appreciation sector.
The project is made up of 99 lots to be sold in 2 stages. Each lot owner will be allowed to build
a single home in each lot, sized 240 m2 or 300 m2 (approximately 2,550 ft2 and 3,200 ft2,
respectively), following general architectural guidelines set forth in the purchase documents.
Lot prices start at $54,000 for lots that begin at 5,200 square feet.
Our Quito – Mindo tour also offers you the possibility to travel outside of Quito, to the north-
western part of the Province of Pichincha. We will visit the Mindo area, known for its abundant
bio-diversity (just Google “Mindo” to find out more about this bird-watchers and ecotourism
Mindo is an ecotourism hotspot where nature enthusiast can find plenty of activities and enjoy
their natural surroundings.
There we will visit the project Arboretto Riverside Villas (ARV), a novel concept in ecotourism
presold villas. ARV is made up of 36 custom homes, to be built within an extension of 25
acres. We have built the first model home in ARV, which we will be able to visit during our
Prices start at $150,000 for a 1,300 square foot custom home built on a lot of an average of
10,000 square feet.
The key characteristic of these homes is their transparency and the way
they are immersed in nature:
Each house has its own outside Jacuzzi, literally allowing you to enjoy nature in the warmth of
your own deck.
In summary, Quito and the Mindo area have a great deal to offer to those who are looking for a
modern, city life-style as well as to those of you who enjoy a more relaxed way of life in a
smaller town (without being out of reach of the big city).
This is just one more example of Ecuador’s diversity and this tour will provide you the
opportunity to experience the many faces that Quito and Mindo have to offer. We look forward
to sharing this experience with you. Regards Carlos.
