Two Powerful Ideas for Wealth Protection

Every year we attend conferences, like the Agora Wealth Symposium each July in Vancouver, to see what some of the top speakers in the world have to say about the economy and wealth protection.  One of the main "take away ideas" of the past few years is that almost everyone's wealth preservation strategy should include international real estate as an important component.

Diversifying  your net worth overseas with international real estate is actually far simpler than most people  appreciate.  More importantly, you can invest in both style and luxury while creating a legacy of memories for future generations of your family.

Here are two powerful ways that to make overseas real estate work for you and your family as a wealth protection strategy:

Action Idea #1:  Consider creating  your own "private offshore land bank" by investing in a  residential home site in a luxury resort like Del Pacifico. This can be done at Del Pacifico with as little as $225,000 and  is an ideal way to internationalize your IRA account. More importantly, owning a residential lot is a low risk, low hassle and low profile way to invest a portion of your assets offshore.  Low risk? Stewart Title and other US companies will issue title insurance policies on residential lots at Del Pacifiico. Low Hassle? You neither have to worry about decorating nor building on a lot.  Low profile?  Contact us to discuss!

Action Idea #2:  Do you want to create  a second home for your family which is also an income producing investment? Then owning a  luxury resort real estate, like a house or condominium at Del Pacifico, might be the best way to go.  Currently Del Pacifico has condos and houses available starting at  $275,000 fully furnished and going up to $1,750,000  for a spectacular ocean view house with pool and jacuzzi.  Why not make this your second home or family retreat for creating multiple generations of memories?  Local bank financing is available.  Order your free copy of the Safe Haven Report, a special report on the logic of owning resort real estate.

Special Consultation Offer:  If you're serious about international real estate or are concerned about the direction of domestic economic policy, I'd like to extend to you a complimentary private consultation to discuss owning international real estate and how it could  fit your personal objectives. I can help you sort through objectives and options very quickly to see if international real estate is an idea to consider.  Call  +1-410-727-6444  or send me an email to arrange a convenient time.

Final Due Diligence? Of course,  if you're ready to schedule a "site visit"  as the final step of  your "due diligence",  our vacation experts can help to arrange a personal trip to view Del Pacifico. We can arrange for your stay in either our beachfront hotel, Alma del Pacifico or in one of our luxurious vacation rental condos or houses. 

Look forward to hearing from you,

Notes from Vancouver

Lolly and I just spent the last week in Vancouver attending the Agora Wealth Symposium which attracted over 800 internationally oriented investors. The topic this year was "America:Fight or Flight" as many people are concerned about an increasingly tax-hungry Washington, D.C. implementing a more "progressive" tax system to fuel big government. William, Fernando & Leslie also joined us and our presentation on Costa Rica: Creating Your Safe Haven in Paradise was well received. We also had over 100 people visit our booth to discuss how owning real estate in Costa Rica could fit into their personal financial planning. Please feel free to e-mail us if you would like to receive a PowerPoint of our presentation.

Vancouver is an incredible city where the climate was in the 70 degree range - similar to the breezy weather in San Jose, Costa Rica. What was amazing was the incredible real estate bubble they are now experiencing in Vancouver. Waterfront luxury condominiums are now selling for $2000 per square foot! That equates to about $4.2 million for a three-bedroom condominium. Now compare that to our condos at Del Pacifico which are selling for about $250 per square foot. The real estate boom in Vancouver has been fueled by a large influx of people from Hong Kong and more recently mainland China and it's estimated that over 20% of all the condos there are purely for investment and are vacant.

At the conference we ran into a number of old friends including Bill Bonner of Agora, Rick Rule of Global Resources and also some of our long time owners at Del Pacifico including Dennis Hopton who traveled from Hong Kong, and Linda Stack from California. We were fortunate to be with this group of people during the budget debate as it became clear that a growing number of people are looking at adding rental resort properties to their investment portfolio for a "just in case" investment; in fact a number of people will be coming to visit Del Pacifico in the next several weeks and we have offered them a special end of summer "friends and family" rate at our beachfront Alma del Pacifico hotel of $157 for a garden villa. If you would like to inquire about this rate please contact our Baltimore office directly for availability.
