Real Estate Investment in Buenos Aires: Buenos Aires, a one way trip

Posted by Nick Niesen on November 8th, 2010

The city's charm adds to the convenient exchange rate that sets Buenos Aires as an ideal city for international tourism and furthermore, a mine for investment. The investment opportunities are multiple and the channels are open for independent developments: real estate, independent business, technology, importing, and many more.

An attractive road for foreign investors is within the real estate market. It is a realistic option both for small investors and big economic groups. The initial investment cost for a property is quite low and the return is surprisingly high, in short and long term basis. The cost of property and land is beginning to increase in Buenos Aires due to the high demand for permanent housing and short-term rental. There is in fact a deficit of apartments, what also explains the springing of loads of new developments that are.

The acquisition of a property carries along a series of implicit business opportunities apart from its personal use as a private residence: remodeling and resale, traditional rental, temporary rental, among others.

Short-term rentals is one of the most simple and feasible directions for small investors and most especially for those not currently residing in Buenos Aires. Alojargentina, other than selling properties and providing counseling in real estate, offers a full "Property Management" service. This consists in renting the property to tourists and companies following a short-term manner and in the property's maintenance according to each customer's particular needs.

Someone using this service from abroad, for example, can forget about taking care of the property since it can be left in the company's hands. It is a complete service that includes renting the apartment, the guest's full assistance, bills and taxes payment, property maintenance and coordination of any required repairs. The proposal anticipates the property owner's interest in being informed of what is going on with his/her apartment and this is why reports are sent regularly. Customers may choose between a full management or a temporary rent solely management.

Frequent visitors may have their property in Buenos Aires to enjoy during their trips and use it as an extra income source through temporary rent. So, purchasing an apartment in Buenos Aires is an opportunity for a double investment: generating short and long term profit added to having a vacation home in an evermore alluring destination as Buenos Aires.

The apartments apt to be offered for temporary rent have different characteristics but there are certain mandatory requirements such as full equipment, basic amenities and demanded location. The preferred neighborhoods are Recoleta, Downtown and Palermo, but guests often ask for Las Cañitas, Barrio Norte, Belgrano and Puerto Madero as well.

The Real Estate Sales area in Alojargentina specializes in this type of investment. The firm sells properties for personal use but mostly assists on temporary rent investment opportunities. It holds extensive experience in handling sales for foreign citizens and thus has the necessary know how in regards to processes, paperwork and requirements for non-resident buyers.
