26 June 2012 .
I witnessed something shocking this week…
The international demand for “Ecuador real estate” literally doubled according to my website server stats.
It caused me to probe further, and sure enough, according to search statistics released by Google, for the first time in recent memory, this week, in June, “Ecuador real estate” was more searched for online than other traditional retirement hot spots like “Costa Rica real estate” and “Panama real estate”!
First, see how the demand for Ecuador real estate has changed compared to Costa Rica and Panama over the last 8 years…

What’s caused the steep jump in demand?
My guess is the promotions surrounding the upcoming International Living Magazine Conference in Ecuador from Aug 2-4, 2012.
Love or hate what they have to say, we all have to admire how that magazine has built such an enormous, loyal following (many thousands) and how they’ve truly become the trend-leaders in the expat world.
Not to mention, they’ve ranked Ecuador #1 on their “Best places to retire index” for three years running now.
Before that, as you can see, Ecuador passed pretty under the radar.
So… if you have a property in Ecuador you were thinking about selling, stop thinking, list it!
Now’s the time to move it.
Take advantage of all the enthusiasm and increase in international demand surrounding the event until the end of next month, the only IL event in Ecuador for this year (according to IL).
I bet you thought I was going to tell you “buy, buy, buy” like the others, huh?
