Hi, Rebecca,

I've been researching buying property in Montevideo recently and am flying out there at the end of Feb to have a look round and view some properties. The best info I've found is from Muxi & Asociados. They are a legal and foreign investment advisor and can put you in touch with reputable estate agents. Their e-mail address is www.uruguayINVEST.com. Another useful address is www.uruguayinfo.com.

I'll be asking plenty of questions while I'm out there, but as far as I can see, this is a great time to buy, provided you're not in it for a fast buck.

I'll e-mail again if I come up with any great or scary news re the economy out there. Sadly I don't know anything about mortgages.

Good luck,

yours, Luke

I am also interested in the results of your journey. I am looking for a way to move to Uruguay, maybe buy some properties to make a living.

My trip to Montevideo was very interesting. I viewed 8 one bedroom apartments in various districts, all of them new. The asking prices were about USD 25-30,000, but you could make a purchase for USD5-10,000 less. The apartments were built 3-4 years ago before the economic down turn. Now few people in Uruguay can afford them, so there is a good opportunity to buy cheaply.
Montevideo is a mix of things. Some beautiful old Spanish Colonnial style buildings mixed in with some poor areas. It looks like an attractive city running out of money.
I was told the value of a property should increase 10% over the next 5-10 years. This would increase if foreign investment picked up.
It is not a place to make fast money. If you want to take more of a risk, with greater reward, Argentina is the place to go.
Hope this is useful. Good luck.

My wife and I are retired and I have been researching Uruguay as a place to purchase a 2 bedroom apartment. I'm flexible as to location, I'm open to Punta del Este, Maldonado, Montevideo, Colonia, etc...

Does anyone know the current Real Estate Market in Uruguay and/or the current economic situation.

I am tentatively planning a trip to Uruguay next May '04.

Any information would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hey Luke -

I saw your message on the expatexchange website and thought I would ask you if you ever found a property to invest/buy in Uruguay?

I am an American who has been living and working in Uruguay off and on for over 15 years now. I have a reliable and respectable group there that specializes in Real Estate investment and assist many foreigners in their dealings.

Pls advise your current status with this and we can go from there.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Stephen Saxon
