Thanks so much for your interest. I moved to Nicaragua from Canada seven years ago and absolutely fell in love with the beauty and warmth of the country. Since that time, I have built a business that is wholly dedicated to sharing Nicaragua with the rest of the world.

Not a day passes that I don’t have someone ask me for “all of the details” about Nicaragua, so I decided to take my knowledge directly to the places where most of the questions originate: Canada and the United States. From August 29 through October 1, I’ll be traveling around North America, meeting with small groups of individuals and sharing everything I know. I’ll be scheduling four meetings per day while I am in town – one at 2PM, 4PM, 6PM and 7:30PM. Simply pick the time and date below that will work best for you.  I’m looking forward to meeting you in the near future.

SF Luxury Condo Sales Challenging Recession?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 1:51 am

Even though the recession has pummeled most of the real estate market, high-end condo sales in San Francisco have flourished in 2011. SF condos have long been a commodity for chic, trendy buyers and renters. The top five San Francisco condo sales show that luxury is not always sacrificed in hot spot locations like San Francisco.

Market Street has long been a desirable destination for buyers looking for a little extra. Beginning at The Embarcadero and running through downtown, the Castro District and the Twin Peaks neighborhood, Market Street provides options for these buyers and renters. A recent condo sold for $7.2 M, which is the most expensive condo sale on-record in San Francisco. Also on Market Street, the number five most expensive condo sold for $4.35 M—not bad.

Another recent sale of $5.85 M in Pacific Heights was one million less than it went for in 2010, but still marks an impressive sale at number 4 on SF’s top 5 sales for 2011. Spear Street, overlooking The Bay Bridge, sold two exclusive condos for $4.76 M and $4.55 M in the same building.

Do the sales of a few luxury San Francisco condos really warrant a hopeful outlook for the real estate market?

How has your IRA been doing lately?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 1:48 am

How has your IRA been doing lately?

For those who have retirement accounts comprised entirely of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, many saw declines as steep as 40% in past year. The drop was abrupt and caught many off guard. Some companies, particularly those in the financial sector, lost up to 100%. Luckily the markets have been inching back up lately, which offers investors an excellent chance to diversify out of strictly paper investments.

Stocks, bonds and mutual funds are the investments that make up the balance of most IRAs, 401(k)s and other retirement accounts in the United States. The fees and commissions on these retirement accounts nationwide add up to big profits for Wall Street Firms. In fact, some firms have prohibited investors from investing in anything but stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Not only that, but some firms have lead investors to believe that their only options for investing in their retirement account lies with paper investments, which is not the case.

IRAs were not created as a mechanism to force investors to hold any one particular class of assets. In fact, IRAs were designed to be self-directed.  There is a better way available to you, one your stockbroker may not have told you about. You can purchase global real estate in your IRA. Despite what financial management firms may tell you, it can be done.

Global real estate offers many advantages not currently available to those holding strictly paper assets. To begin with, real estate is not traditionally correlated with the stock market, which provides the safety of diversification within one’s retirement portfolio. Second, real estate is a hard asset that cannot fall to zero, as stocks can. Third, investors can choose global real estate, which offers investors further diversification and access to under-priced markets with the potential for stratospheric gains. Forth, investors can use leverage in their real estate investments, which can increase gains exponentially. Fifth, in addition to appreciation of the property itself, real estate provides excellent opportunities for steady rental income. It’s important to note that rental income rises with inflation.

Retirees need income-producing investments that keep up with inflation. Inflation is a genuine and substantial threat to retirement accounts. Retirees require income that will be sufficient to cover their expenses in the future, which is why real estate is a crucial component of any retirement portfolio.

Let’s look at a few other options. According to the Social Security Administration, the average monthly check sent out to retirees is just $1,007, or only $12,084 a year. Pension plans don’t offer real security either as many pension plans are underfunded. Dividends have been shown to be vulnerable to significant cuts.  Gold and precious metals do not generate income. Savings and annuity plans are often effectively devalued by inflation. With so much federal stimulus money flowing into the US economy and the economies of many other countries, it is vital to have powerful inflation protection in your IRA. The ultimate inflation hedge is international real estate.

However, you do not want just any global real estate. Choosing the right country and the right property is crucial to getting ahead. There are a few factors one should look for in global real estate. One factor that will put you ahead is selecting a country that is warm and sunny.

78 million baby boomers will be retiring soon and seeking warmer climates. Second, in order to maximize one’s real estate investment choosing properties on or near the ocean is a good bet as they are always in demand. As the famous saying goes, “Buy oceanfront, they’re not making any more of it. Lastly, choosing global real estate located in a country that is as beautiful—if not more beautiful—than its neighbors but available for a lower price tag puts you even farther ahead of the game. If you pay $100,000 for a home site that costs $300,000 a couple hours drive south, you already have a big head start.

Grupo Mariana is offering international real estate that fits all the criteria above and more. Not only is Grupo Mariana offering tropical prime oceanfront real estate in a country that is more beautiful than its neighbors and with a better price tag, but Grupo Mariana is also bringing you the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship golf course in Nicaragua and Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the largest  Hotel Company in the world and much more.

Grupo Mariana is proud to put you in the lead with a purchase of global tropical real estate suitable for your IRA. Most retirement plans are eligible to purchase real estate including, Traditional IRAs Roth IRAs, SEP IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs, and 401(k)s. Investors can purchase almost any type of real estate including, raw land, pre-development properties, commercial real estate, single family houses, multiple-unit dwellings, apartment buildings, condominiums, office buildings and of course, global real estate. Retirement investors will be ahead of the game with solid real estate investments that offer many benefits paper assets cannot.

Grupo Mariana is partnering with Soveriegn International Pension Services, a leader in Offshore IRA solutions to introduce investors to the enticing options that are available to them.

FHA to lower the loan limit, has little effect on Las Vegas Condos

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 12:59 am

On September 30, the Federal Housing Administration will lower the loan limit for government backed financing for home owners. There are two opinions: one that argues it will hurt homeowners who no longer can apply for financing and the other that argues home and condo pricings around the country will be driven down, making homes more available to those looking to purchase a home or condo.

Simply put, the FHA is lowering the amount of money that can be loaned to individuals- which could be a step in the right direction anyways (especially since it was improper loans that began the housing crisis in the first place).

According to Hubble Smith’s article in the Las Vegas Review Journal, since the limit will go from 125 percent of the median home price to 115 percent, 5 million homes will become “ineligible for government sponsored-enterprise financing”.  Since people will not be able to get the loans needed to afford these homes and condos, owners will lower prices according to Shaun White of Re/Max. In regard to the Las Vegas condominium market, lowering the loan limit will affect less than 5% of the market, which is most likely good news for Las Vegas condo buyers and sellers alike. So even though the FHA is aiming at the most expensive metropolitan cities, Las Vegas condos will maintain the course that they have been on.

Las Vegas Real Estate Market Provides for a Flurry of Investors

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 11:39 pm

Investors are cashing in on the abundant selection of foreclosed homes in Las Vegas. Las Vegas is currently leading with the highest number of foreclosures throughout the nation, which provides for low housing prices and an opportunity for investors to make a little bit of money. Since investors are being provided with great deals, they are in turn providing renters with affordable prices, creating a win-win situation for everyone involved.

According to real estate agent Ashley McCormick from LasVegasRealEstate.org, the real estate market in Vegas has not seen these types of low prices in a long time. Rental prices are remaining relatively the same, while housing prices are down and interest rates have seen a serious drop. North Carolina’s Local Market Monitor, a company that provides research data, has come out with future return estimates for Las Vegas investors in comparison to the national average. Las Vegas real estate investors will see a return 4.7% higher than the national average, but it doesn’t stop there. Certain Las Vegas condos could provide for more moneymaking opportunities. As seen with condo prices lower than $50,000 and in the Lake Las Vegas subdivision, investors might be able to earn even higher returns.

As proven through current estimates Las Vegas has become a hot spot for eager investors. The National Association of Realtors has recently shown that the percent of investment home purchases has increase from 17% in 2010 to 19% in 2011. The survey that the Local Market Monitor conducted included 316 real estate market estimates and their returns on investments. Las Vegas ranked in the top 10.

Purchasing A Home – Cheaper Than Renting In Most U.S. Cities

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 4:47 am

Purchasing A Home – Cheaper Than Renting In Most U.S. Cities

Due to the downfall of the housing market and the high demand to rent, has lead to an increase in rental units so much that it is now cheaper to buy a two-bedroom home than to rent one in many major U.S. cities.

Trulia, a real estate website spoke out that buying was cheaper than renting in 74% of the country’s 50 largest cities in July. Only a few cities such as Seattle, New York, and San Francisco, renting was cheaper. 14% of cities renting was less expensive to rent but close to the cost of buying a home.

Daisy Kong a spokeswoman from Trulia mentions, “It’s a personal decision, of course. But if you have a steady job and you are planning to stay for seven years or more and have enough cash to put 20% down and enough left over for seven or eight months of expenses, you’re better off buying in most places,”

A survey conducted by Trulia found that Las Vegas offered the most attractive market pricing for purchasing a home. According to the S&P/Case-Shiller home prices index, Prices in Vegas have plunged more than 59% from their August 2006 peak. Buyers interested in purchasing a home in Vegas could find a two-bedroom townhouse or condo for as low as $60,000. According to Trulia, a ratio of only six times the median annual rent of a similar rental apartment, which is $9,700. A Mortgage payment could be as low as $260 a month on a 30-year 5% interest loan.  Mesa Arizona, and Fresno California are also places that make for a great buyers market.

The top renters market consist of New York which is one of the highest of any of the 50 markets with an average rent priced at $2980 a month, Fort worth Texas, exceeding the rent by 32 times. Seattle, Omaha and Kansas are cities 24 times the rent or higher where renting makes more sense then buying.

Weather your choice is to rent or buy, the housing market is in constant flux and its imperative that you conduct your own research before making your next big financial decision.

Check out some of these Markets where Buying May be Cheaper than Renting.

New Construction Condos Are Back

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 11:39 pm

New Construction Condos Are Back

It’s the law of Supply and Demand and it’s only natural that we have come back to this. As the oversupply of condos from 2005-2008 continue to sell, supply levels of quality new condo developments are now receding below demand. There is always a demand for good product, and bad developments won’t sell in any market.

One of the best Development Companies is returning to San Diego, as it’s time to build again. Bosa Development has won approval for a new construction tower in downtown San Diego.

Miami Condo Market Continues Improvement

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr Oscar @ 2:47 am

Miami Condo Market Continues Improvement

The Miami Condo market is showing signs of recovery primarily because of wealthy buyers, both local and foreign.

After the Real estate crash in 2007, construction essentially halted. Since the beginning of this year, however, things are looking up, both figuratively and literally as the Miami Skyline begins to grow again.

Foreign investors and multinational developers are channeling funds into local property, thus beginning the resurrection process of Miami’s construction market.

“The Brazilians walk in, they don’t even negotiate,” said real estate tycoon Gil Dezer to The New York Times. “It’s a no-brainer for them.”

The economy’s sharp decline in 2008 created a situation where supply far outweighed demand. Now, developers say home values have improved given that there are 48,000 properties for sale, as compared to 108,000 from three years ago.

While developers are hesitant to call this upward trend a “boom,” investments from multinational companies have resulted in the emergence of large-scale mixed-use development projects.
