estate in Panama is on a seemingly endless increase. Whether
it is tourists finding the perfect vacation property, or well
informed, pre-planned investors looking for long-term investment
opportunities in undeveloped areas like Boquete, Panama is one
of the hot spots in the western hemisphere. Panama has a number
of incredibly attractive qualities that draw thousands of potential
buyers and investors each year.
With an average yearly temperature of 82 degrees Fahrenheit,
it is easy to understand why people flock to enjoy Panama’s
weather every day. Real estate investment in Panama is also
aided by the nation’s status in the international community.
Panama, utilizing the US dollar, and in participating in CAFTA,
is definitely in a favorable relationship with powerful the
United States. Panama’s political stability is due, in
part, to its democratic system of government, but also to its
lack of an army.
There are a multitude of different areas for investment in
real estate in Panama. Vacation properties, custom-built retirement
real estate, as well as investment properties exist throughout
the country. The Caribbean coast, Pacific Panama, and everything
in-between is or will be developed in the near future. The
Caribbean cities like Bocas del Toro, and the Pacific province
of Chiriqui including beach properties, and more rural areas
such as Boquete, offer potential buyers with different tastes
a number of different options in terms of geography, culture,
and proximity to other areas.
Although it seems a majority of buyers seem to prefer beachfront
properties on the coasts, there are viable real estate opportunities
in more rural areas. For example, an area such as Boquete
boasts cool temperatures year round and a plethora of potential
for outdoor recreation. A few examples including hiking, rafting,
biking, bird watching, fishing, golf, and kayaking. Areas
like this, as well as the commonly sought after ocean front
resorts, can serve well as a vacation property. Palo Alto
Villas and Condos are some examples of the development projects
in this mountainous region of Panama. Real estate in Panama
offers some amazing deals at times. For example, small islands
and peninsulas off of the archipelago can also be purchased
starting in the low millions (USD).
Vacation properties are common in Panama due to their affordable
pricing and Panama’s relative proximity to the United
States and Canada. This is similar in other Central American
countries, specifically in Costa Rica, another stable Latin
American country that has shares the stability of Panama.
Given the fact these two countries share a border with one
another, it is easy to understand where the stability stems
from. Areas such as Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean side of
Panama serve as pipelines by which Costa Ricans and Panamanians
travel to each other’s respective country to share culture
and see the sights.
Whether a potential buyer is looking for Panama real estate
that serves as a vacation property, or a rural area to make
a home like Boquete, outsiders are and will be continued to
be drawn to Panama to buy up this tropical paradise.
