The 3 Reasons to Buy Real Estate OverseasWednesday, April 17th, 2013
There are three good reasons to buy real estate overseas:
- To position yourself for capital growth by finding undervalued property.
- To upgrade your lifestyle by choosing a location where your money goes further.
- To gain a rental income by tapping into a growing visitor trend.
Imagine if you could find somewhere where all three of these objectives come together.
Well, we think we have, and we’d like to introduce it to you.
Starting this summer we’re running a brand new series of Your Future Now real estate tours. We’re covering the south western part of Nicaragua – and its lynch pin town – San Juan del Sur. We’ve hand-picked a set of properties at a bargain price in desirable locations where you can live in luxury for far less than you can back home. For more on the kind of lifestyle you can lead in San Juan del Sur, check out this hyper-local site.
Our tours are highly efficient. You get to see a great deal of property – far more than you could arrange on your own. They’re also cost-effective – we cover your hotel accommodation for two nights and your meals. So if you want to work out if Nicaragua is right for you coming on tour with us is the prudent thing to do.
We run dozens of real estate tours to Nicaragua. We know what works and what doesn’t. We keep the tours small so we can offer a personalized service and make sure all your questions get answered. We also include presentations on the legal aspects of purchasing and owning property in Nicaragua.
Why not join us on one of the following dates this summer:
- July 13 – 14, 2013
- August 3 – 4, 2013
- August 31 – Sept 1, 2013.

Your Shortcut To Living The Good Life In NicaraguaThursday, February 28th, 2013
If you’re considering Nicaragua for retirement, a vacation home or an investment property, there’s no easier (or more efficient) way to get in front of the best opportunities than joining one of our real estate tours.
On tour you’ll get to savor the beauty of Nicaragua first hand, test out the lifestyle and see why at this point in its history the country offers enormous opportunities for both retirees and investors.
We’ve been running real estate tours for years in Nicaragua, but the itinerary we’ve put together for this upcoming series could easily be our best. The tour covers Nicaragua’s southern Pacific coast and the San Juan del Sur region, representing the country’s top tourism and investment area. But despite the evident progress taking place here, property remains remarkably affordable – with prices far lower than in other parts of Central America.
This is a part of the world where you can live a luxurious lifestyle on a bare-bones budget, where dramatic hills sweep down to empty beaches washed by clear blue water, and where you don’t have to give up that dream of an ocean-side retirement home.
The tour allows you to take advantage of our years of experience in hunting down the best deals, the finest real estate developments and the undervalued opportunities. In fact we’re so confident in the quality of the tour program, that we’re pleased to cover your hotel and meal expenses for the two days, with no obligation whatsoever.
Our next tour runs on March 16-17, 2013
The two most important reasons people join our Nicaragua real estate toursWednesday, July 8th, 2009
Why do people join our tours? Well it’s quite simple: First to see the best real estate the country has to offer in a highly efficient manner and, second, to experience how the country feels, up close and in-person.
The best real estate in Nicaragua
Coldwell Banker Nicaragua has helped hundreds of clients get in on the ground floor of real estate opportunities in Nicaragua, and it is this experience that we will share with you.
We’ve run the numbers, done the math, analyzed 7 Opportunity Factors, interviewed and ranked property developments across the country. We can say, with confidence, that the properties on our tours are best-in-class: strong brands, delivering quality products that are outperforming their competitors. Learn more.
In Nicaragua, this quality comes at an affordable price. Market comps from Reveal Real Estate, a market research organization that tracks trends in international real estate show that overall, Nicaragua real estate is more affordable than other countries in the region.
How Nicaragua makes you feel
It’s not only about running numbers, people also need access to qualitative, softer factors like the feel of a location, and the experience of being in a new place. Of course there’s no substitute for coming to the country in person. But, for a quick taster, have a look at this video we’ve put together.
We know the “lay of the land” which will make your experience so much richer, easier and more rewarding.
Join our real estate tours
Remember, we’re paying for all on-the-ground expenses for three days, including transport, meals and hotel accommodations, with no obligation whatsoever. Learn more.
Our next series of tours are running on the following dates: July 31st – August 2nd 2009, August 7-9th 2009, and August 14-16th 2009. Join us on tour and you’ll get the hard and soft factors you need to build a complete picture of what is happening. It’s the perfect way to make sense of the property market.
Your new vacation home is waiting for you in San Juan del SurMonday, February 23rd, 2009
Own a fully furnished, fully landscaped home with inspired architectural design for a single all-inclusive price. A truly turnkey experience where everything is taken care of.
This world class resort has been able to maintain a historical occupancy rate of between 70-80% for the past 4 years. Of all the development communities in San Juan del Sur, this community is the farthest along and has set the bar for others up and coming. Each unit is individually owned while professionally managed and maintained by the hotel.
The profits from the luxury resort are used to fund the A. Jean Brugger Charitable Foundation. This is best practice social responsibility – where a social and financial mission are so inter-twined to be inseparable. Where else can you sip a Margarita with a view like the one above of the pool at Bistro la Canoa knowing that you are helping make Nicaragua a better place?
Brooke Rundle becomes Central America’s first eco-brokerSunday, October 5th, 2008
Brooke Rundle, sales representative with Coldwell Banker Nicaragua, recently became the first accredited eco-broker in Central America under the program “Ecobroker International.”
Scoring another first for the region, she’s also been working hand-in-hand with developer Tim Kelly on building an Earthship – an innovative green home built almost entirely out of recycled materials.
A green real estate momentum is rapidly building here in Nicaragua. Just last month, the Association of Nicaraguan Investors and Developers (ANID) hosted its first green real estate seminar in Managua. The turnout was huge and the excitement contagious.
Reporter Blake Schmidt was at the event and wrote an article for the Nica Times on what he heard. It was there that he met Brooke Rundle and learned about our green real estate tours showcasing the very best in green investment opportunities in the country.
Earthship makes Malibu Magazine!Saturday, August 9th, 2008
Lauren Stocker finds more than surfing waves on her trip to San Juan del Sur, a coastal town in Nicaragua earlier this year. Much more.
Her article featured in the Malibu lifestyle magazine takes us away from the tourist streets to the community of El Carizal. There she’s handed the keys to the Earthship…
“While getting on the plane to Nicaragua, I knew I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I liked that idea. I was ready to see what was waiting for me on the other side. I knew absolutely nothing of Earthships before I made my trip. It was just some “thing” I heard they were building down there.“
She was in good hands with developer Tim Kelly and Brooke Rundle, the first certified Eco-broker in Nicaragua. Brooke is also hosting the first dedicated green real estate tours to the country with Coldwell Banker. And, yes, the Earthship is featured.
Check out the article and Lauren’s mesmerizing photo journal. The photo of the bay of San Juan del Sur at the top of this post is one of them.
Nicaragua real estate – “A work of art” emerges on Day 27 of the Earthship constructionSaturday, February 2nd, 2008
The building is beginning its transformation from a solid structure, to a work of art…
Thanks to Jo, Tim, and Lauren for their extra help at the site today.
Nicaragua real estate: Day 26 in the life of a Nicaraguan EarthshipFriday, February 1st, 2008
As our road is under construction, there are very small windows of opportunity to receive materials. And everyday is an opportunity to learn.
Yesterday I was promised by one fellow based out of Rivas that the sand would arrive before 7:00am, an hour and a half before the road crew arrives. I was also promised by a more local building supply store that the 60 cement bags I had ordered would also arrive before 8:00am and that we were first on the priority list for the day.
As we pulled into the site at 6:55am, the truck full of 9 cubic meters of sand was already being unloaded.
The day began with more concrete work on the water catchment system, making sure all drains were slopped at the proper angle. There is also a significant amount of mud/adobe plasterwork underway and it is drying very well. This is the time of year for making mud since it has plenty of time to cure during this dry season.
But all work slowed to a crawl as the last bag of cement was consumed at about 8:30am… We were able to keep busy, but the efficiency of work was clearly lacking for about an hour. The nice thing about building Earthships, is that there will always be dirt to move or sift and tires to pound.
At about 9:45am, the cement arrived.
Of course by this time the road was impassable. As we have done before, we hiked it to the site much like ants marching up a hill.
The day continued and progress was made. Just another good Nica-story…
Green home construction – Day 25 in the construction of a Nicaraguan EarthshipThursday, January 31st, 2008
The water catchment is taking form. In the next few days we will tie the finish coat on the middle dome into the gutters and cistern. We’re sloping the flow at 1 inch every four feet.
Lot signs are going in on Day 24 of the construction of a Nicaraguan EarthshipWednesday, January 30th, 2008
It’s midway through the week and it looks as though we will accomplish our short term objectives. Today we saw two hits on the dome and both gutters built up significantly.
Although the inside of the building is not currently a high priority, there are enough hands that we are able to continue with “packout” and adobe plaster. The vapor barrier is partially up in both domes as well.
A green real estate community south of San Juan del Sur
All around us things are happening. The community itself is truly developing. Lot signs are up for the remaining six lots and the road has already received its preliminary grading and compaction. The signs mark the sites for new Earthship buildings in this growing green real estate community located a little south of the town of San Juan del Sur.
The roads will be to high standard. Tim is using a very experienced crew and the material he’s throwing down is quality grade that should compact down nicely.
